Welcome to this edition of the Morning Drive Podcast! In today’s episode, Peter Gabriel, NFL referees, the bottom of the Chicago River - what more could you ask for?
►After two days of marathon negotiations — and mounting frustration throughout the league — the NFL and the officials’ union announced at midnight Thursday that a tentative eight-year agreement had been reached to end a lockout that began in June.
►Low-wage workers in Chicago are older and more educated than they were a decade ago. That’s according to a study released Wednesday by Women Employed and the Action Now Institute, two Chicago-based non-profits.
Featured in the podcast:
►You asked: What’s at the bottom of the Chicago River? WBEZ’s Jennifer Brandel got in a kayak and found out.
And your WEATHER for today:Partly cloudy, highs in the mid to upper 60s. Tonight, mostly clear, lows in the upper 40s except in the mid 50s downtown.
Friday, mostly sunny, highs in the upper 60s. Then Friday night, mostly clear, lows in the upper 40s except in the mid 50s downtown. Some winds but otherwise a pretty nice evening.
And Peter Gabriel is scheduled to play the United Center tonight, so we HAD to put him in the podcast. The hits just keep on coming this week.
