Chicago 2016 On The Small Screen

By Staff in News on Sep 25, 2009 5:20PM

2009_08_USOC.jpg A week from today is the big day for Chicago 2016 as the IOC announces the host city for the 2016 Olympics. And the local television stations will have you covered, from the bid committee's final presentation in the wee hours of the morning until the host city announcement mid-morning. The Trib's Phil Rosenthal breaks it all down for you here with a complete listing of which station is sending who where and when it'll all be on TV. Why our bosses in New York wouldn't pony up the cash to send Marcus and Tankboy on a week-long bender to Copenhagen to cover the bid, if you're a night owl or just up to watch, Marcus will be up all night, live-blogging the bid presentation and then he'll be heading down to join the other media folks at Daley Plaza, providing us constant updates.
