The Church of Tisch’s new digs

The Chicago Chapter of The Church of Tisch opens its new location on Monday.

CBS-owned WBBM-TV opens its new “block 37” location in the loop on Monday, a new broadcast facility with its newscasts broadcast in HD. The new 22 West Washington St. location is dubbed “Heart of Chicago”. Sun-Times columnist Rob Feder noted today he didn’t get an invitation to come to the ribbon-cutting ceremony, mainly because of his constant bashing of the station’s general manager, Joe Ahern (don’t feel bad, Mr. Feder.. I’m just as critical of the guy and I didn’t get one, either… Not that I ever wanted to go…)

A special showcasting the new HD facility titled – you guessed it – Heart of Chicago, airs Sunday at 6 a.m., 1 p.m., and 10:35 p.m. on Channel 2, giving you three chances to ignore it.

The Rev. Les Moonves may be in town Monday to preside over the service – I mean, the ribbon-cutting ceremony. A mandatory donation is being collected during the homily by head ushers Dawn Ostroff and Katie Couric. If you plan to attend, you’d better give – or they’ll shake you down. Hard. After all, somebody’s got to pay for Mr. Ahern’s marble showers and expensive lunches.

After all, The Church of Tisch is in “The Heart of Chicago”.
