I don’t know the ratings numbers or all of the inside scoop. I do know that when you ask Chicago civic and business leaders about what WBEZ does that is truly special and great, you’ll almost always hear about Worldview and Jerome McDonnell. Ditto from national colleagues.
This is a nationally unique show. It’s an influential show that is a “face” of WBEZ in many parts of the Chicago community – downtown and neighborhoods – because of the ways that Jerome has pitched issues and positioned the show.
Worldview is a gem, a crown jewel for WBEZ in many people’s eyes. Hopefully, that can be factored in to how Chicago Public Radio measures and values success, and that Worldview can, indeed, be saved as many people are publicly urging.Howard Learner, Executive Director,
