Jerome McDonnell and WBEZ’s Worldview team are the embodiment of Chicago as a global city. Other media highlight international news headlines, but only Worldview, with grace, intelligence and research, digs into the underlying issues to bring perspectives from those on the ground in regions that otherwise receive little or no attention. These insights, always provided with context to educate the listener, are critical to understanding global issues from conflict to trade, development to culture. The weekly global activism segment showcases how Chicagoans are connected to the world through inspiring projects and travel. I ask WBEZ to reconsider their plans to silence this vital platform which so enhances our global city.Adele Simmons
