Synopsis

This history of Chicago journalism is framed against the larger landscape of American media and the ways in which technology and mergers have altered news gathering and presenting, and it considers daily operations at the newspapers and broadcast stations to demonstrate how they have changed with the times. Audience tastes and interests ran a parallel course with technology, a sharp decline in print readership, competition in television news, and the explosion of the Internet.

Wayne Klatt's first glimpses of a newsroom came when the Chicago Tribune printed four of his essays while he was a junior in high school. After earning a communications degree from the University of Illinois, Klatt worked as a reporter, writer and editor for the City News Bureau, later called the City News Service. He has won the Paul Harvey Award for a radio script and Nit & Wit magazine's Short Fiction Award. Klatt also co-wrote the true-crime books Freed to Kill and I Am Cain, and has contributed to many magazines.
