You gonna watch Chicagoland on CNN? Thursdays at 10 p.m.

I went back to my old stomping grounds to see some pals in Chicago and for the premiere of CNN’s original series CHICAGOLAND. One of my earlier jobs was with WMAQ in Chicago as an anchor.

I was a whopping 26 when I arrived here and now when I look back, I’m like, ‘Gosh, I was such a baby!’ I thought I was ready for it, but it was the school of hard knocks for a young reporter. But you learn fast. [Chicago] is a place where you gotta learn fast! It’s sink or swim!

The big boss Jeff Zucker says shows like Chicagoland will jump start CNNs prime time ratings.
