We take a look at how weather-and the winter-are shaping up in Chicago. And, we remember the life of longtime alderman of Chicago’s 50th Ward, Bernard Stone. Also, we take a look at how non religious individuals handle the holiday season. Plus, we dig into our Morning Shift archives.

The news broke yesterday that Alderman Berny Stone will be trying out a new career as a talk show host on WLS-AM. This news comes after a bitter defeat in the runoff in the 50th Ward. Stone is looking for a new career at the age of 83.It's this Saturday night, 7pm-9pm, which gave me an idea.

In a race that dislodged Chicago’s second-longest serving member of City Council, Alderman Bernard L. Stone lost his seat of nearly 38 years to a political newcomer. Debra Silverstein, a certified public accountant, swept the ward with 62 percent of the vote, against Stone’s 38 percent.
