We break down the Christmas Bulls/Lakers showdown. Renowned director Steve James joins us to discuss public reception to his documentary chronicling the life of Roger Ebert. And, we revisit an in-depth conversation with former Chicago photojournalist, Scott Strazzante.
We talk to City Council's Inspector General, Faisal Khan, to learn more on his continued battles with aldermen over his role as a watchdog. We also talk with Alderman Joe Moore on his vote for council's reform. Then, we hear from a band that's known for channeling their inner Sam Cooke.
On Saturday Chicago's roster of honorary streets will grow with the addition of one that recognizes Sam Cooke, a pioneer of soul music. The new designation includes a stretch of 36th and Cottage Grove, a corner just a block south of where the soul singer once lived.
