Windy City Times welcomes two amazing individuals to the sales team.

Scott Duff is a Chicago based actor, comedian, theatre educator, and activist. As a founding member of the award-winning About Face Theatre, he helped to create over a dozen original works, including the ground-breaking About Face Youth Theatre. Before joining the Windy City Times team, he was the Director of Communications and Fundraising Events for Season of Concern, the Chicagoland theatre community's fundraising effort providing direct relief for those living with HIV/AIDS and other debilitating illness or injury. Currently, Scott is the host/producer of OUT CHICAGO, a live talk show for the LGBT community airing Sundays, 11 am to 1 pm on WCPT, Chicago's Progressive Talk. He is also the host/producer of Chigaygo!, Laugh Factory Chicago's night of gay and gay-friendly comedy.

Freddie Bain's love for the arts began at an early age. He became a visual merchandiser for the famed Marshall Field's flagship store on State Street. Freddie started designing hats and accessories in 1989. One of his earlier creations can be seen in Madonna's tour documentary "Truth or Dare"; at the same time, he began his career as a DJ. He is currently a 23-year veteran behind the decks, and holds a respected presence in the nightlife event promotion/music journalism field. During his DJ career, he has spun alongside such luminaries as Frankie Knuckles, Derrick Carter and Ralphi Rosario. After completing over five years of music editing for Chicago's notorious Gab Magazine, Freddie coordinated the music coverage and advertising sales for BOI Magazine. Freddie also worked in advertising management for the Chicago-based house music publication 5 Magazine and for Chicagopride.com .
