Rick Telander: From the NFL to Writing to Medicine

Apr 1, 2018

This story surveys the very soul of sports and asks the question:  What really matters about what fans watch and players play?

Our guide is Rick Telander. Rick played quarterback for Peoria’s Richwoods High School, Defensive back for Northwestern University, and started training camp with the National Football League’s Kansas City Chiefs.

Movie-related memorabilia collected during late film critic Roger Ebert's tenure at the Chicago Sun-Times will become part of a University of Illinois collection.

A for sale sign has been put on the Chicago Sun-Times, and the company that operates rival Chicago Tribune has announced it is interested in owning the newspaper.  Chicago-based Wrapports LLC announced it has agreed to enter into discussions with tronc Inc. after failing to interest other media companies in acquiring the Sun-Times.
