After years of struggling to get its new home off the ground the Museum of Broadcast Communications is putting its partially renovated building at the corner of State and Kinzie up for sale and hoping to stay on as a tenant. MBC paid $4.6 million for the four-story structure in 2003 and invested millions more in improvements before running out of money. Executive director Bruce DuMont has long blamed Governor Rod Blagojevich for failing to deliver at least $6 million in promised state funds.
