    Watching morning TV in your PJs may be ultra chill, but what happens behind the scenes of your favorite talk show most certainly is not. And because seeing is believing, we spent a day on set with Windy City LIVE's associate producer and modern-day Wonder Woman, Jessie Kalin.

    Now, we're busy bees, too — but Kalin accomplishes an impressive list of tasks by the time most of us are finally rolling into work. Still, this confident superstar is able to flawlessly coordinate an interview with a local Project Runway contestant, a tasty chef demo, and a major audience surprise…without breaking a sweat. Oh, and forget running around the set in sneaks — she does it all in an impressive pair of heels. Yep, we told you she was remarkable. Now, turn off the tube, click through, and get ready for one heck of a reality show.
