The Boss Chicks


The WFIL "Boss Chicks" were a promotional idea, with sex appeal. After all, if football teams could have cheerleaders, why couldn't WFIL have attractive women promoting the station? The idea was a huge success. Here are a few pictures of the girls. Click on any 'Thumbnail" for the full size image. The thumbnails may appear blurry, but the pictures aren't.
