Good morning!

Welcome to this edition of the Morning Drive Podcast! In today’s episode, we introduce Rick Kogan, kick off the Ryder Cup and FINALLY hear some good baseball news.

Today’s news:

Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel is speaking out against one alderman’s idea to get more police officers on the street. The plan, thought up by 12th Ward Alderman George Cardenas, would raise money through a monthly fee tacked on to Chicagoans electricity bills.

The Chicago Symphony Orchestra has reached a tentative labor agreement with its musicians, who went on strike over the weekend.

The Ryder Cup - golf’s premier international tournament - opens northwest of Chicago today. Organizers estimate 240,000 people will attend the tournament to watch the world’s best golfers face off.
