WBEZ’s Chicago and Illinois News Roundup: May 25, 2018

The Chicago City Council voted to approve the Obama Presidential Center, but punted on the question of a police training academy. Ida B. Wells may be honored with a new street name downtown. And an Irish developer backed out of a plan to redevelop the South Works steel site on the far South Side. 

Those are just a few of the big local and state stories we’re tackling in this week’s Friday News Roundup. As always, we’ve put together a great panel of journalists to help us review and analyze the news. 

Morning Shift talks with:

  • Chicago Tribune reporter Lolly Bowean 
  • Chicago-based freelance journalist Kim Bellware 
  • And Alby Gallun, real estate reporter with Crain’s Chicago Business
