Local TV Notes: Robert Redford & Shark Tank Come To Chicago

1. Shark Tank Casting Call.

Today at the Shedd.

See also: The Chicago Shark.

2. Robert Redford's Series On Chicago Looks Like A Wank.

"The vibrant culture and opportunities inherent in this 21st century, world-class city run alongside profound daily challenges," Redford said in a statement.

"Much of it falls on the shoulders of its tough, visionary mayor, his team and people doing heroic work in neighborhoods throughout the city. Chicago has always had a rhythm all its own. It's a city that wears its heart on its sleeve and I am honored to be a part of telling this story."


3. Fox News Anchor Megyn Kelly, Who Once Worked In The Chicago Office Of Bickel & Brewer And Has A Net Worth Of $5 Million, Renews Contract, According To The New York Times, Which Left Out The Most Important Fact: How Much Does She Make?


On her time in Chicago, from a GQ interview with photo spread because women on TV must always be sexualized:

I knew it was time to get out one day - it was around my sixth year of practice - when I was driving home on the Kennedy in Chicago. It was 3 a.m. Tears were pouring down my face. I was so exhausted. And I thought to myself, 'What if I just had a car accident where I broke a bone? I don't want to hurt myself, I don't want to die, but if I just broke my femur that would keep me out of work for a good three months.'

So she went into broadcast "reporting," which had easier hours.

4. Fox News Chicago's Robin Robinson Lists Bucktown House For $1.29 Million.

5. Chicago In The UK.

And it's a mess.
