And now, with their take on the news of the day, the Dolans.
DARIA DOLAN: Hey, listen, this is a great entrepreneurial story.

KEN DOLAN: That is correct. We are the Dolans, Ken and Daria Dolan at your service. Our A-team gang is here. It`s the best, the finest team in television. And, don`t forget, something we do that nobody else does, I won`t tell you why, and that is simply because we take calls directly from you twice a day, not to our guests, but to us, to tell us what`s on your mind.

KEN DOLAN: The windy city.
DARIA DOLAN: Well, it can`t be any windier than it is in New York today. I almost took off.
