It’s something a lot of us do when a friend from out of town visits Chicago... We take them to see all of the city’s famous landmarks and exciting sights. But if they are a really good friend, we might give them something extra – a personal glimpse into of our own world living in the city. Often, these excursions are the best of all.
That’s the concept behind MY CHICAGO, a new local series from the producers of Check, Please! and WTTW Chicago. MY CHICAGO is a “talk show on wheels” in which alternating hosts Odette Yousef and Mark Bazer interview three famous, notable, or simply interesting Chicagoans or “Chicagophiles” who tell us about their life in the city and show us the neighborhoods where they grew up, the places they work (or worked), or other locations that have had significant meaning for them.
