| No Comments

The Chicago Urban League is producing a new half-hour weekly television show that will air Sunday mornings starting Feb. 22 on Fox-owned WFLD-Channel 32, with an encore airing on WPWR-Channel 50. Called "NextTV," the entirely locally-produced program is designed to showcase the transformation of African-Americans as they grow their businesses, makeover their careers, enter the job market and discover the tools needed to achieve financial security. Urban League CEO and President Cheryle Jackson is credited with spearheading the drive to get the show produced and on the air.
