View descriptionShare

This week Bill is joined by Chicago Tribune reporter Gregory Royal Pratt, whose new book, "The City Is Up for Grabs: How Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot Led and Lost a City in Crisis", is out now. They discuss Lightfoot's rocky relationship with the media during her one term as Chicago Mayor. Pratt also talks about some of the reasons Lori Lightfoot didn't even make the runoff in the mayoral election in 2023.

The reporter roundtable with Greg Hinz, Dave Stewart, Ray Long and Heather Cherone talked about the release of the police-involved shooting that killed Dexter Reed. Heather talked about her relationship covering former Mayor Lightfoot. Are the Bears going to get any public subsidies for their new stadium? O.J. Simpson died this week, has the media learned anything in the 30 years since the double-murder and trial? And Brandon Johnson wants more money from the city council for the migrant issue.

Finally, hear from the first Mayor Daley, Richard J. Daley, about when the Bears were considering moving out to the suburbs back in the 1970s.
