Born in Ukraine, Andriy’s family immigrated to the U.S. when he was just 3-years-old.
When a translator in Ukraine was helping with Andriy’s passport, they turned "Андрій Xудий" into “Andriy Hudyy.”
“My first name is pronounced ‘André,’ as it is in French, which most Americans have no trouble pronouncing. So that translation mishap wasn’t helpful.”
And his last name is pronounced “Who-Dee,” but is spelled “Hudyy,” again, thanks to the well-meaning translator.
Andriy attended Downers Grove South, and played football for the Mustangs, at right tackle.
At 19, he became a U.S. Citizen.
A Ukrainian Catholic, Andriy graduated from Loyola University Chicago, with a Bachelor's of Business Administration in Finance.
He went on to work at TD Ameritrade on their derivatives trading desk.
From there, Andriy went to JP Morgan, where he focused on retirement planning.
His fiancé, Lauren, is a Chicago Public Schools teacher.
Andriy enjoys being outdoors, spending time walking around the city, exploring, and trying new food.
He also enjoys fishing, biking, and swimming.

Radio Producer Extraordinaire
Keith was born in Elgin, and grew up in Streamwood.
But somewhere along the line, something went terribly wrong…
The Conrad family moved south, all the way to Huntsville, Alabama.
Keith never quite fully recovered.
Although his dad is a retired rocket scientist, and his mom is an expert with numbers, Keith can barely add.
So Keith shunned the fame & the money of the United States' space program for a career in radio broadcasting!
He began his radio career the day after the 2000 Presidential election, that whole dangling chad thing, at News/Talk 770 WVNN in Huntsville, Alabama.
For 5 years he worked as the morning producer, the afternoon producer, and the official radio station car washer, as he worked his way through college.
From Huntsville, Keith finally made his way back to the Midwest, and spent 2 years serving as the morning producer for News/Talk 1130 WISN in Milwaukee.
Things were going great guns for Keith until he and the rest of the morning show crew fell victim to The Great Clear Channel Purge of 2007.
Since Keith lost his job just before The Great Recession, he's always fancied himself a sort of trendsetter.
He quickly recovered and took a job as the morning producer for WGST radio, in Atlanta, where he managed to survive The Great Clear Channel Purge of 2009!
Of course, as much Keith enjoyed the 105-degree summers, and constantly being called a “Yankee,” and “Carpetbagger” (all over again), Keith always wanted to get back home to his Chicago roots.
And in July of 2009, Keith finally got the call from AM 560 WIND!
So he packed-up his George Foreman Grill, and his Xbox, and drove north throughout the night, to become the morning show producer for Big John Howell & Amy Jacobson.
Later came Keith's all too brief stops at AM 720 WGN, and at AM 890 WLS, before a return to AM 560 WIND.
Ah, the unpredictability of radio.
