On this penultimate episode of Chicago Newsroom, we invite three friends of the show to share their memories and observations about the current political and professional scene. Chicago Tribune investigative reporter Hal Dardick tells us that Lori Lightfoot, with her remarkable mandate, has a short, but powerful window in which to initiate significant change in Chicago government. Carol Felsenthal, prolific author, blogger and journalist, speculates on Rahm Emanuel's post-city hall professional life, Donald Trump's pardoning of Conrad Black and her belief that Scott Waguespack will claim the chairmanship of the Finance Committee. NBC 5 correspondent Phil Rogers talks with us about the current state of local television news and how he began his Chicago career in journalism by covering the Flight 191 disaster 40 years ago for WBEZ. This program was recorded by CAN TV.
