SHARE Chicago broadcast kicks off ‘Good Morning America’ anniversary tour

No need to go to New York to fulfill that dream of waving on a morning news show. Chicagoans will have a chance this week — in the comfort of North Avenue Beach in November.

“Good Morning America”has chosen Chicago as the launch point for a bus tour celebrating its 40th anniversary. Correspondent Nick Watt will be at the beach with live reports between 6 and 8 a.m. Tuesday. Among the segments planned: cooking by Siena Tavern’s Fabio Viviani and acrobatics by the Jesse White Tumblers.

Audience members are welcome and urged to arrive by 5:45 a.m.

ABC is marking the anniversary with a 40-hourbroadcast airing live beginning at 4 p.m. Tuesday, culminating in a reunion of past “GMA” personalities on Thursday.
