After a brief break, Chicago Live! returned on November 1 with its new quarterly and expanded show format, this time taking the show on the road with its first stop at Governors State University in University Park. The acclaimed stage and radio show produced by the Chicago Tribune and hosted by veteran Chicago reporter, author and radio/TV personality Rick Kogan featured guests from the worlds of arts, entertainment, sports and popular culture, as well as Chicago’s top newsmakers. For its opener at GSU, the show joined former alderman and WVON host Cliff Kelley, hip-hop artist PsalmOne, Three Floyds Brewing’s Barnaby Struve and blues musician Sugar Blue with the Tribune’s Josh Noel, Dawn Turner Trice and editorial page editor Bruce Dold. Check out individual sets and a surprise collaboration between PsalmOne and Sugar Blue and watch Barnaby Struve of Three Floyds Brewing explain craft beer.
