City Club forums have frequently garnered attention in the media, both locally and nationally. Beyond Illinois newspapers and television, City Club of Chicago activities have been featured on CNN, Fox News Channel, C-SPAN, National Public Radio, the Los Angeles Times, the New York Times, the Washington Post and Reuters.
