Carol Marin will host a NBC-owned WMAQ-Channel 5 special "Like Father, Like Son," described as a tale of the two Mayor Daleys -- Richard J. and Richard M. -- who both served 21 years in office. The special program makes use of extensive archival footage dating back to 1955 -- when Richard J. Daley was first elected Mayor of Chicago -- to examine the similarities and differences between father and son. The special also includes interviews with Bill Daley, brother of Richard M. Daley; Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Lois Wille; Rev. Jesse Jackson, and former 34th Ward alderman Wilson Frost.
The special will air on Sunday, Dec. 26, at 9 a.m. and repeat on New Year's Day at 5 p..m. Carol Marin is Channel 5's political editor and a Sun-Times columnist.
