Reader columnist Ben Joravsky runs down Mayor Daley's legacy, the mayoral race, the end of highrises at Cabrini Green, the anti-teacher sentiment of Waiting for Superman, and President Obama's midterm performance, in the year-end episode of Chicago Newsroom.

Former Chicago Public Radio program director Ken Davis, who moderated last year's Chicago Journalism Town Hall, has hosted the public affairs and media analysis show since September, Thursdays at 6:30 p.m. on cable channel CAN TV19.

At the end of the show Ed Bus, the fictional 53rd Ward alderman, makes an appearance to boost his satirical mayoral campaign, touting his 100% pro-Daley voting record in the City Council. Bus is played by Chicago Public Radio senior content developer Justin Kaufmann, a member of comedy troupe Schadenfreude.
