It will be held in the Butler Reception Room, located in the Warde Academic Center at SXU’s Chicago campus, 3700 W. 103rd St. Registration is $10 for the general public and free for BAPA Members. Space is limited and reservations are required.  For more information or to register, contact BAPA at (773) 233-3100 or www.bapa.org.

Rosen embarked on a radio career that started at WGN in December 1988. Rosen produced the late night radio show of the legendary “Chicago Eddie” Schwartz, and later followed Schwartz to WLUP in 1992.

Two years later, Rosen was named general manager of the Continental Basketball Association’s Chicago Rockers. But he soon returned to his first love of radio and was placed in management at WKTU in New York. Later that year, Rosen was named Program Director at WMVP. Following a successful run at WMVP, he was named Program Director of WSCR in 2005.

Under Rosen’s leadership, WSCR acquired the broadcast rights for the Chicago White Sox and has without fail remained one of the nation’s most popular sports talk stations.

Rosen lives with his wife Mary and their son Ben in Beverly. He is involved in numerous charitable activities, including serving on the American Diabetes Association’s Board of Directors.
