Fronted by veteran investigative journalist Phil Rogers and released exclusively on NBC Chicago's Roku and Apple TV channels, "Big Chicago Stories" infuses these stories with new footage and interviews from those who were part of the stories when they happened.
"Whether they were big celebrations, immense disasters or shocking crimes, these were the stories which were driving the conversation in Chicago," Rogers said. "And we envision telling them to two different audiences: those who remember them and will be fascinated at re-living them, and those who will be learning about them for the first time."
