As it said it would, Chicago public radio station WBEZ-FM (91.5) is finally getting around to expanding the blog presence at its vocalo.org Web address. Joining former Sun-Times radio and TV columnist Robert Feder at the site starting next Monday, Jan. 11, will be architecture critic and former Sun-Times columnist Lee Bey, food reporter and critic Steve Dolinsky and creativity guru and author Amy Krouse Rosenthal.
"We are striving to become the destination where Chicago goes to talk by conscientiously adding voices to the mix who offer a unique and informed perspective and invite dialogue," said Justin Kaufmann, Chicago Public Radio senior content director. Kaufman described Bey as an active participant in the city's architecture and urban planning scene for years, and he called Dolinsky the go-to guy for Chicago restaurant news. Kaufmann also said Rosenthal will invite visitors to her blog to create and connect.
