The man who made Chicago television viewers sick by revealing "splotches of semen, vaginal fluid and blood" on hotel bedspreads soon could be shining his undercover ultraviolet light over hospital linens.
Evoking memories of his infamous "Hidden Hotel Horrors" sweeps piece, Dave Savini, the crack investigative reporter for CBS-owned WBBM-Channel 2, is soliciting tips from viewers about dirty hospitals. On his Facebook page Monday, he wrote:
"on to my next projects -- if you have a tip about dirty hospitals or hospital beds and hospital bathrooms send them my way.. a new big undercover investigation is on the way soon..."
Savini will forever be remembered for the 3‚½-minute report he delivered on Nov. 4, 1996, when he was a member of the Unit 5 investigative team at NBC-owned WMAQ-Channel 5.
