(CHICAGO) ABC 7 EYEWITNESS MORNING NEWS, with co-anchor Terrell Brown, will leave the studio to broadcast live from the Bronzeville neighborhood to spotlight some of the outstanding people, organizations and residents who call the South Side their home. The two-and-a-half hour block of live news, featuring the best of the South Side, will air Friday, May 13 from 4:30-7 am. Morning co-anchor Judy Hsu will be anchoring the broadcast from the studio.
Throughout the newscast, viewers will be treated to neighborhood gems, and celebrated groups including the Jesse White Tumblers, the Bucket Boys, and Greek steppers. Additionally, viewers will get a sample of some of the most mouth-watering food and refreshments from the South Side’s best restaurants. The food and refreshments featured on the newscast will be free to the public who come out to the live location at the corner of E 41st Street and S. Martin Luther King Drive.
“We look forward to showcasing the many vibrant stories and thriving communities that comprise the South Side,” said Terrell Brown, co-anchor of the ABC 7 Eyewitness morning newscasts from 4:30 am to 7:00 am. “There is definitely a better view of the South Side than people often see, and we’re glad to acknowledge the many significant contributions made by South Siders on live, local television.”
With the surge of violence in Chicago garnering international attention, the news from the South Side can center around guns, gangs and violence. But there is another, positive aspect to the South Side. The South Side is a racially-mixed and economically diverse section of the city with many stable and vibrant neighborhoods from The South Loop, Bronzeville, Chatham, Bridgeport, Chinatown, Kenwood, Hyde Park, Beverly and Pullman. It is also a section of the city that has produced numerous outstanding citizens with notable stories of success.
