Dear Friend of the MBC:

I am happy to announce that our latest book Chicago Television is now available at www.Museum.TV.
With more than 200 vintage photographs and illuminating commentary, media critic Robert Feder says the book is:

"a glorious and nostalgic journey through the first 50 years of the medium."

I am also very happy to report that the MBC will soon restart construction on our new home thanks to a $6-million capital grant from the State of Illinois.

Illinois Governor Pat Quinn has delivered on the long-promised appropriation and we appreciate his strong support. Governor Quinn understands Chicago’s important role in American broadcasting history as well as the role of the MBC in preserving that history.

Yours truly,

Bruce DuMont
