CBS 2 is launching a contest for residents to become the station’s new morning traffic reporter.
The Chicago broadcasting community is remembering Bernard Benjamin Klein, a television stagehand who spent his career at CBS 2 as the medium evolved from its infancy.
It changed the face of American politics and took place in Chicago 50 years ago in the old WBBM-TV studios. The Nixon-Kennedy presidential debates were the first ever to be televised. The match-up highlighted the importance of image and playing to the cameras in politics.
