The proximity of Sunday's Super Bowl in Indianapolis has some wondering if Chicago could ever host the big game.

Wednesday was the last day of January--and that meant it was time for a panel of journalists were on hand to review the month’s news. WBEZ’s Alex Keefe, Chicago Sun-Times’ Mark Brown and JET’s Kyra Kyles joined Eight Forty-Eight to take a look at the month's biggest headlines. Then, Super Bowl XLVI will be held in Indianapolis Sunday--but could Chicago ever host the big game? WBEZ's Mike Puente, ESPN's Lester Munson, Sam Stark of the Chicago Sports Commission and Marc Ganis, president of SportsCorp Ltd. considered the question. And, Illinois Gov. Pat Quinn was expected to give his State of the State address Wednesday. To prepare, Chicago Young Republicans president Angel Garcia and Young Democrats of Illinois president Matt Fruth debated the state’s top priorities for Quinn in the year ahead.
