WMAQ-TV, WTTW form partnership

NBC-owned WMAQ-TV and PBS station WTTW have teamed up to present a documentary on Italian-Americans that will premiere during the Memorial Day weekend.

And They Came To Chicago: The Italian-American Legacy, a special tracing Italian-American history in Chicago, is being narrated by native son Joe Mantegna and will air on WMAQ Sunday Night at 11:05 p.m. and again on Memorial Day at noon. Then, an expanded version will air on WTTW on June 5 at 7:30 p.m., during the station’s pledge period. Viewers will have an opportunity to purchase a DVD on the special.

The two stations are collaborating on the project through special events, streaming video and historical information on each of the station’ websites.
