2011 has been a banner year for weather in Chicago.

Jul. 12, 2011

Eight Forty-Eight talks with NBC 5's Ginger Zee about the wild weather this summer in Chicago--and then Chicagoans share their plans to beat the heat. Chicago Comptroller Amer Ahmad discusses the new citywide reimbursement policy. Political scientist Laurel Harbridge talks with Eight Forty-Eight to dissect the details from both sides of the budget deficit debate.  And Althea Legaspi reports on Chicago’s annual tastemaker event, the Pitchfork Music Festival - and the boutique booking agencies that manage the acts on stage.
