Chicago Tonight: The Week in Review: 11/15

 

On this edition of Chicago Tonight: The Week in Review with Joel Weisman, Willis Tower will no longer be the tallest building in the U.S. Gov. Pat Quinn taps Paul Vallas as his running mate. Sen. Mark Kirk endorses no one in the GOP governor’s race and says the Republican Party needs more moderate candidates. The Tribune Company cuts 240 jobs. And in sports -- new injuries for both Jay Cutler and Derrick Rose. And Northern Illinois University remains undefeated, strengthening its case for a major bowl bid.

Guests:
- Craig Dellimore, WBBM Newsradio 780
- John McCarron, Chicago Tribune
- Mary Wisniewski, Reuters
- Danny Ecker, Crain’s Chicago Business
