To know me is to know I'm a connector, convener and sharer. I'm all about helping bridge the gap between people of different backgrounds in all sorts of ways, plus instigating as much fun as possible.
With that said, I’m hosting a gathering for friends and neighbors to meet my lovely TV news colleagues Blanca Rios and Michael Wall. They will share stories about working in TV and what it is like behind the scenes.

If you've been on-air or produced TV, come share your stories.
If you want to be on TV, bring all your questions. This will be a very friendly gathering where there will be no such thing as a dumb question.
When: Wednesday, April 27, 7-8 p.m.Blanca Rios works at ABC 7 Chicago as an Assignment Desk Editor/Field Producer/Writer. She's president of the National Association for Hispanic Journalists-Chicago chapter.
RSVP: Contact me at MediaCuriousCHI@gmail.com. I'll give you the full address.
Seating is limited so RSVP ASAP.
Cost: We'll pass a hat to cover refreshments and other expenses. (Want to bring some goodies. Cool.)
Sponsors: None. Just me.
Michael Wall produces ABC 7’s special event coverage — the Auto Show, St. Patrick's Day parade, Bud Billiken Day parade — and steps in occasionally for Windy City Live producers. He was the first bloke to be on the board of the Association for Women Journalists-Chicago.
