Chicago shuts down for Oprah

September 02, 2009|Chicago Tribune

Closing a three-block stretch for two days next week for "The Oprah Winfrey Show" will be a public relations boost for the city, Chicago Mayor Richard Daley said Tuesday.

Daley said the talk show host will reimburse the city for the costs of the event, which will shut down part of Michigan Avenue to tape an episode that will include a performance by the Black Eyed Peas.

"I wish we could do this every day in the city of Chicago," Daley said, explaining that the program will create jobs and bring worldwide publicity to the city.
