Closing Bell

3pm-4pm WEEKDAYS

When the markets close, The Closing Bell begins. Join host Bret Gogoel for a wrap of local, national, and global business as he chats with Chicago small businesses, entrepreneurs, and CEOs. Alongside news anchors Kim Gordon, Nick Gale, and Annie Krall, Bret will share the latest tech, consumer, and local business news, and why it matters to you AND your wallet.
