This morning, Monday, January 15th at 4:30 a.m., NBC 5 Chicago debuted “Barely Today” at 4:30 am hosted by Bruce Wolf…and Eli’s Cheesecake was there!

Wolf is the sportscaster for the NBC 5 Morning News and this marks an exciting new time for Chicagoans to get news on both NBC 5 and a simulcast on WLUP-FM. For us at Eli’s who start baking early, it is a good way to get news, sports and entertainment on television and the radio.

Bruce Wolf and co-anchor Ellie Pai Hong, along with NBC 5 President and General Manager, Larry Wert, are presented with a commemorative Eli’s Cheesecake by Eli’s Marc Schulman shortly before “Barely Today” makes its debut at 4:30 am.


It is day one on the “Barely Today set” celebrating a Bears victory in the NFC Semi-Finals with an Eli’s Cheesecake front and center.
