Chicago Newsroom 5/25/17
Published on May 25, 2017
Ken Davis is joined by media observers Thom Clark and Scott Smith. They discuss the Chicago media landscape, in particular the likely sale of the Sun-Times and Reader to Tronc, which already owns the Tribune, Chicago Magazine and dozens of other smaller publications. They also discuss the rise of other news sources in Chicago such as ProPublica Illinois, the South Side weekly and City Bureau, and they express their concern that the Reader might not survive the transition. This program was produced by Chicago Access Network Television (CAN TV).
