Remembering Roger Ebert

Famed Chicago Sun-Times film critic, Roger Ebert, died last April after a long battle with cancer. In the space of a week, his wife Chaz Ebert, organized a private and public memorial. Since then, there have been non-stop tributes to Ebert throughout the country. These tributes range from the Toronto Film Festival to Ebertfest in Champaign-Urbana. Next week, the Arts Club of Chicago will also honor Ebert's life with a tribute. Chaz Ebert joins us in studio along with WBEZ film contributor Milos Stehlik. (Photo: Flickr/BradleyLeese)
