May 27, 2014 – Chicago Public Media invites the public to check out the new location of its South Side Bureau, 322 E. 75th Street (at Prairie), at an open house Friday, June 13, 4-8 p.m. Award-winning Chicago Public Media journalist and South Side Bureau reporter Natalie Y. Moore will be on hand, along with Vocalo DJ Ayana Contreras (Reclaimed Soul), to welcome folks to the Bureau, listen to some music and enjoy complimentary food and beverages.
The original South Side Bureau location opened in Englewood in 2007 and was named to honor the Polk Bros. Foundation for its significant support of Chicago Pubic Media’s community news bureaus. That recognition remains with the bureau’s move to Park Manor. The new location is centrally located among the bustling Prairie Avenue business district and has upgraded production facilities.
