The President of the United States calls Chicago “A city of broad shoulders, big hearts, and bold dreams. A city of legendary sports figures, legendary sports venues and legendary sports fans.” The President is a former US Senator and professor from Chicago, living there for 25 years.
The President’s comments are bolstered by the fact that Chicago has already been named the Best Sports City in the United States by The Sporting News in 1993 and 2006. The Chicago metropolitan area is the third-largest media market. ] Each of the big four U.S. television networks, CBS, ABC, NBC and FOX, directly owns and operates a high-definition television station in Chicago. Because of this you may find yourself on TV or be an occasional guess on the Oprah Winfrey Show.
While in the city, you may also run into the making of a motion picture. Chicago is a filming-friendly location. “ Since the 1980s, many motion pictures have been filmed in the city, most notably John Hughes’ classic Ferris Bueller’s Day Off and the massive blockbuster success, The Dark Knight and its predecessor, Batman Begins.”
