WTTW “Chicago Tonight” Correspondent and Segment Host Paris Schutz

Anton Cermak, William Thompson, Richard J. and Richard M. Daley, Jane Byrne, Harold Washington, and Rahm Emanuel. Each name is synonymous with a period of civic turmoil. Politics in Chicago is a contact sport and local media is in the middle of the scrum. Join us for our first event of the season on September 19, 2019 at the Union League Club for lunch and a presentation by Paris Schutz on the media’s coverage of state and local politics.

Paris Schutz grew up in River Forest and graduated from St. Ignatius Prep in Chicago. From there he earned a degree in radio, television, and film from Syracuse University. He started as an intern at WTTW and is now the station’s political reporter and occasional host of “Chicago Tonight.” In 2011 and 2012, he received the Peter Lisagor Award as Chicago’s “Best Television Reporter,” an honor presented by the nation’s largest chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists. He can also be found playing the piano at such familiar haunts as the Abbey Pub, Beat Kitchen, Reggie’s, Uncommon Ground, Haymarket, FitzGerald’s and the Underground Wonder Bar.
