It was only a matter of time before someone picked up on what Mark Bazer’s been doing with The Interview Show over the course of the past few years. From Chicago icons to national and internationally renowned artists, musicians, politicians and activists—Bazer has supplied us, and viewers across the city, with entertaining, at times comical, and astute conversations with guests from all social, political and entertainment spectrums. Bazer and the show hit a career milestone this week as it was picked up by America Public Television for national syndication. The show, which has been taped at the Hideout once a month for the past few years, and which has aired exclusively on WTTW, will hit TVs in more than twelve major cities in the coming months. Robert Feder, a lifelong Chicagoan, covered the move for his blog in association with The Daily Herald, take a read.
The Chicago Tribune has also listed this Friday’s (SOLD OUT) show as one of “Top 5 Things to Do this Weekend”
