CHICAGO – A WGN interview with a shirtless jogger has gone viral.

Reporter Tahman Bradley caught up with Ethan Renoe Sunday night as he was running, shirtless, along Lake Michigan in the warm and rainy weather. The resulting video has been viewed more than 1 million times and has garnered roughly 17,000 likes and 9,000 shares on Facebook.

Many WGN followers commented on the video, praising Renoe's looks and trying to hook up for a date.

On Monday Renoe visited the WGN studios to talk about his reaction with Pat Tomasulo and Paul Konrad.

"It's really been crazy," Renoe said. "I have about 900 friend requests (on Facebook) right now."

Renoe said he was surprised about how quickly the video took off.

When WGN asked him if he was "looking for love," Renoe replied: "I am."

Renoe is from Colorado, and says he is leaving town today. Watch his full interview in the video above.
