Friday’s comment of the day: Martin Hawrysko: While I don’t expect this to be much of a difference maker by itself, I do like the idea of creating an impressive brick and mortar visual that showcases the brand in the heart of the city. It won’t be a wasted effort if CBS 2 News/CBS News Chicago can also get several other things right. I like their odds better with Jennifer Lyons at the helm.
