Bill Kurtis 2.0: Rebirthing a Career

We like to think of Jimmy Carrane as our “little engine that couldn't.” You know – he tries hard but he still hasn't made it out of the basement. So deep down in the bowels of Studio 312 is probably one of the last places you'd expect to find the legendary Chicago news anchor, renowned pitchman and growing cultural icon Bill Kurtis. Kurtis tells Jimmy about the constraints of being a serious newsman, and also opens up for the first time about the death of his son this summer.
