New Managing Editor at Chicago Sun-Times on What’s Ahead for Newspaper

At one time there were 11 daily newspapers in Chicago. Now we have two. And those papers, like newspapers across the country, have struggled in recent years to stay afloat. 

Last week, the Chicago Sun-Times named its award-winning investigative reporter Chris Fusco as the paper’s new managing editor.

To give us an idea of what's ahead for the paper, Fusco and Jim Kirk, Sun-Times publisher and editor-In-chief, join host Eddie Arruza in conversation.
