Damon Ranger is singer and actor and also works for the CBS O&O in Chicago.

Ranger sings with the group Blackbox (I never heard of them) and also works as an Entertainment Reporter for WBBM. 

Ranger has long claimed that he won an Academy Award for the movie the Life of Pi. It was an award that Ranger played up and so did WBBM. He is often introduced as Academy Award winner Damon Ranger.

Ranger is also good friends with Chicago radio personality Mancow. It got very awkward when Mancow called out Ranger for lying about winning an Academy Award. 

Watch the moment when he was called a liar and most likely will be losing his job at WBBM. And why Mancow broke down in tears on the air.
