I have been listening to and learning from Worldview for more than a quarter of a century. When I am a guest of the program I drive to the Navy Pier from my home, which is fifty miles away. It is a fair exchange. I share what I know about one area of the world and in return learn about the rest of the world from experts interviewed at the program. Jerome is a superb host. His questions are probing and direct and his curiosity in genuine. The educational value of this show for Chicago should be obvious to the programmers.
I can’t fathom why the show is on the chopping block, as it has a loyal audience who depend on it for their education and edification. It is not for everyone, of course. I don’t really care about local news. But that doesn’t mean I wish such programs should be discontinued. At this pivotal time in our nation and the world, cancelling this informative show would be disservice to Chicago.Ahmad Sadri
