It's official! Arlington Heights won WGN-TV's first Battle of the 'Burbs, edging out Mount Prospect, 4-3, in a wacky games showdown featured on the Morning News, Thursday, February 19.
Hosted by WGN's Ana Belaval, Team Arlington Heights included the library’s Executive Director Jason Kuhl along with Mayor Tom Hayes, Arlington Park Bugler Monica Benson, SALUTE Founder Will Beiersdorf, and Chicago AAA Insurance Agent Matthew Staley. Mount Prospect's team included Mayor Arlene Juracek along with four other local leaders and business owners.
The competition played out throughout the morning broadcast and included a series of zaney events ranging from an egg pass and Bozo buckets to pin the mustache on the news anchor and a water balloon toss. In the end, Team Arlington Heights cinched the title by one point and secured bragging rights in the northwest 'burbs.
Watch Battle of the 'Burbs highlights including a pie-eating competition.
