Lewis Lazare follows Chicago media and marketing news

Recently in AFTRA Category

At the just-concluded American Federation of Television and Radio Artists national convention in Chicago, there were a couple of developments of local interest. First, congrats to all-news WBBM-AM (780) Political Editor Craig Dellimore, who was elected AFTRA's national vice president. And AFTRA's highest honor, the George Heller Memorial Gold Card, was presented to local AFTRA Executive Director Eileen Willenborg, who is retiring from her job this year after more than 14 years of service. In the award citation, Willenborg was applauded for her efforts in getting passed a state visual media tax incentive and legislation that abolished the non-compete clause in Illinois broadcaster contracts. The George Heller award is bestowed on those who have made a significant contribution to AFTRA and its members.
