A WBEZ/WTTW Partnership

From this morning's Tom Taylor NOW column...

“An unprecedented collaboration” begins between Chicago’s pubradio WBEZ/91.5 and the newsroom at public TV’s WTTW/Channel 11. Ben Calhoun’s the VP of Content and programming for Chicago Public Media’s news/talk WBEZ, and he says “there’s so much shared genetics.” Window to the World-owned WTTW has put a robotic camera in the second-story Navy Pier newsroom of WBEZ, so its talent can go live on Channel 11’s “Chicago Tonight.” While they’ve put a high-speed fiber line in at the TV studio, so people there can participate on WBEZ’s news and talk shows.
