When you talk about people synonymous with WGN-TV, Bozo, Harry Caray and Tom Skilling are top of mind. But when it comes to people who work behind the scenes, Steve Novak is a rock star.

He started at WGN almost 50 years ago during the days when tv news was relatively new, the Cubs were beamed around the world and Bozo was king.

Steve — who is the debut director of Daytime Chicago – talks about how and why WGN has been at the top of its game for 75 years.

Daytime Chicago airs weekdays on WGN from 10 a.m. – 11 a.m.
