'Chicago Tonight' adds arts reporter.
"Chicago Tonight," the nightly news show on Window to the World Communications WTTW-Channel 11, is beefing up its coverage of the arts. Angel Idowu, a reporter/producer for WJTV, the CBS affiliate in Jackson, Mississippi, has been named full-time arts reporter, starting July 15.
She's a graduate of Beloit College and Northwestern University's Medill School of Journalism. Her newly created position is funded by the JCS Arts, Health and Education Fund of the DuPage Foundation.
"To say I am excited to return to my hometown to cover the arts world is an understatement," Idowu said. "I spent my childhood immersed in all the Chicago's arts scene has to offer, whether it be dancing at the Joffrey Ballet, musical theater at Mother McAuley, or writing for the Chicago Tribune's The Mash. In between assignments and rehearsals, I spent all the time I could exploring Chicago's hidden treasures."
