Chicago Maritime Stories with WTTW's Jay Shefsky
On Friday April 15th, Jay Shefsky, host of Jay’s Chicago and senior producer of Chicago Tonight will present a special maritime program at 8:00 pm at the Chicago Maritime Museum at the Bridgeport Arts Center, 1200 West 35th Street, Suite 0E-5010, as part of the 2016 Chicago Maritime Festival and the Chicago Maritime Museum’s “3rd Friday” series. Jay’s presentation will highlight four nautical stories featured on Channel 11: the life of canoe guru and CMM founder Ralph Frese, paddling kayaks on the Calumet River, going over the water at 94 miles per hour during a power boat race, and sailing on a tall ship from Milwaukee to Chicago.
Jay's work has been honored with numerous awards, including Emmys, Peter Lisagor journalism awards, and a Cine Golden Eagle. His work has been broadcast nationally on PBS and on the ABC NEWS Nightline program. Jay is an avid cyclist, hiker, and paddler. His wife Liz Feldman and daughters Hannah and Leah are the best part of Jay's Chicago!
