WBEZ and WTTW to host U.S. Senate candidates forum Thursday ‘to help voters comb through key issues’ – Chicago Sun-Times


The Chicago Sun-Times, WBEZ and WTTW will host a U.S. Senate candidates forum Thursday in Chicago.

Sen. Tammy Duckworth and Republican challenger Kathy Salvi will discuss issues and take questions ahead of the Nov. 8 midterm election.

“Chicago Tonight” co-anchor Paris Schutz and Chicago Sun-Times chief political reporter Tina Sfondeles will moderate the discussion with the candidates at WTTW’s “Chicago Tonight” studio.

“The results of this year’s elections will affect many aspects of our daily lives,” Sfondeles said. “We’re happy to partner with WTTW and WBEZ to help voters comb through key issues in an important Senate race.”

Angela Rozas O’Toole, WBEZ government and politics editor, added: “Voters have important choices to make this election season. With this collaboration with WTTW and our sister organization, the Chicago Sun-Times, the public will have the opportunity to hear directly from these U.S. Senate candidates about a number of important issues.

“We are excited to bring that service to our listeners and viewers.”

The hourlong forum will stream live at 7 p.m. at wttw.com and on WBEZ-FM (91.5). The Sun-Times will run a full report in Friday’s Sun-Times and on the newspaper’s website.
