Roosevelt University in the spotlight on WGN TV News
WGN TV’s Dean Richards made Roosevelt University his headquarters on Friday, Aug. 1, reporting live from the Auditorium Building’s second-floor sundeck on Lollapalooza concert festivities in Chicago’s Grant Park.
The entertainment reporter/critic mentioned Roosevelt prominently in his hourly broadcasts that were on the WGN TV Morning News and the University also was mentioned by Richards on WGN’s noon and evening news.
From the Fainman Hall sundeck, the WGN TV crew had a bird’s eye view of the Lollapalooza entry gate as well as the crowds of concertgoers, some whom Richards interviewed as part of his broadcasts.
“The broadcasts were funny and informative. They also put Roosevelt in the visibility limelight from morning into the night,” said Laura Janota, director of public relations at Roosevelt.
