“The business community in Chicago is vibrant and diverse and we are excited to expand our coverage in this area,” said WTTW President and CEO Sandra Cordova Micek. “This new partnership with Crain’s enables us to deliver essential, up-to-the-minute business news, and it supports our mission of producing and presenting trusted, best-in-class content that is fueled by a distinctly Chicago sensibility.”

“We are delighted to team up with WTTW News and ‘Chicago Tonight’ to create this new way of engaging with our readers and WTTW’s audience,” said Crain’s Publisher and Executive Editor Jim Kirk.
