Geoffrey Baer Explores 'Chicago's South Side' in New Show

Geoffrey Baer has shown us Chicago from the river, the lakefront and even the “L."

Now he’s heading south to explore the unique culture of South Side neighborhoods and share stories from the people who live there.

Geoffrey joins us to talk about the new show "Chicago’s South Side," which premieres Monday following "Chicago Tonight." You’ll also want to check out the new "Chicago’s South Side" website, where you can watch the show in its entirety, see web-exclusive videos of South Side events and find an interactive map and immersive photography.
