Another week has come and gone, which means Ben and Producer Chris run down the news. Starting with...the state of Illinois looks to bring at least three more bookies on line to take the money of sports-betting suckers who should know better. Republican gubernatorial candidate Darren Bailey "softens" his rhetoric to win over swing voters by trying to pretend he's not against abortion, even though he previously said abortions are worse than Nazi genocide. Mayor Lightfoot says no property tax hike. Must be an election year. Speaking of which...Congressman Jesus Garcia can't make up his mind about running for mayors. And lefties call his bluffing, drafting Brandon Johnson to run.See Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.

And now, they do email.Monica Eng 0:08 At WBEZ they kept saying, “Would you like to write our newsletter?” And I'm like, “Are you kidding me? I'm a reporter! Stop with the insulting questions.” And now, like, I love it.Meyerson 0:20 Monica Eng is a longtime Chicago reporter who's covered food, culture, health and the environment for the Chicago Sun-Times, the Chicago Tribune and, yes, also at a radio station, WBEZ. Justin Kaufmann's a former talk show host and producer in Chicago at WBEZ and WGN Radio. They've teamed up to create the Axios Chicago newsletter, rounding up the day's biggest Chicago news plus coverage of their passions, including food and sports.Justin Kaufmann 0:44 Chicago is a different place. It is going to be a different newsletter than Denver. It should be a different newsletter than San Francisco.Meyerson 0:52 Coming to you despite a cough, congestion and a mild fever that a test assures me do not signify COVID-19, I am a well-medicated Charlie Meyerson with Rivet360 and Chicago Public Square, which, yes, is also an email newsletter. And this is Chicago Media Talks. Justin, what did you want to be when you grew up? And how did that lead you into Chicago radio?Kaufmann 1:14 You know, it's funny. My dad always reminds me that I was really into DePaul Blue Demon basketball when I was a kid and I would write up stories like sports stories of the games that they would show on Channel 9 at the time, like when DePaul would pay like Creighton, or Georgetown. And I would write—he showed me when I was older—like, these write-ups. So I think I wanted to be a sports writer in some form. But to be honest, I really wanted to be in radio. I love the idea I had my own— I did the announcements in high school and a lot of things to end up where I ended up to be a talk show host. So I think that that's what I wanted to be.Meyerson 1:53 High school announcements: You and I have that in common. Monica, what did you want to be when you grew up? And how has that shaped your career?Eng 2:01 I had no idea. But by the time I was 15, and my mom was dating Roger Ebert, he said, “Hey, so do one of your kids need a job this summer?” I said, “Well, I'm not going to be doing anything but watching TV. So maybe I'll go try this thing called being a copy clerk at the Chicago Sun-Times.” And from the first day I started working in the features department at the Chicago Sun-Times in 1985, I fell in love with it, and that's all I ever wanted to do—be a newspaper woman or a newswoman. I did not envision I would be an emailer, thanks for calling me that.Meyerson 2:35 It's an honorable profession. It's honorable. Eng 2:37 There was no email at the time, which was why I had a job. You know, putting the mail in the slots at the Chicago Sun-Times.Meyerson 2:45 How and when did you two first meet?Kaufmann 2:48 Ooh.Eng 2:49 Ooh.Kaufmann 2:49 That's a good question. Monica was world-renowned, you know, in Chicago media. And I think I booked her a couple times on talk shows on WBEZ. And then, you know, when Monica was looking to make a career change, she came over to WBEZ. So we worked together at WBEZ for a couple of years, working on talk shows and reporting.Eng 3:12 Yeah, well, yeah, I remember I remember. I used to hear you on the radio. And I was always a huge fan of WBEZ, and then you know, you, you'd say, “Hey, can you come on and talk about your Tribune stories?” And I thought, “Oh, this is fun.” So when you said, “Hey, there might be a spot here,” like, “You know what? I'm gettin' a little sick of the Tribune, maybe I'll think about that.” But as you recall, hiring at public radio sometimes takes a little time. So I think we were doing that dance for a couple of years.Kaufmann 3:39 Yeah, we had a lot of lunches at Fox & Obel, which is that high-end grocery store over on …Eng 3:44 … between Tribune Tower and WBEZ.Meyerson 3:47 How did you come to be a team on the Axios Chicago newsletter?Eng 3:51 Justin had already been working with the Axios daily podcast. So he kind of knew about that world. And we both had worked with Niala Boodhoo at WBEZ. And she was already there. She was quite an evangelist for the place. And I thought, “Whatever, I've never really even heard of this thing.” And so when she told us both about it, I think we're like, “Well, let's take a look at this.” I don't think either of us were like super-sure we wanted to do a newsletter because obviously we had different skills. We didn't like who has newsletter skills? Do people like graduate college knowing how to do this?Kaufmann 4:25 Yeah, I will say, Charlie, that the one thing that grabbed our attention, I think, was looking at what Axios was doing with newsletters—not just in the local markets, but what they were doing with Mike Allen and others who do the national newsletters—is they really did feel like a written talk show. And if you look at Mike's Axios AM, that's what it is. Mike is hosting a talk show—he's doing articles instead of segments—but it really had this vibe, this energy to it. He's connecting to his readers. He's engaging, he's going back and forth. It reminded me a lot of what I was doing at WGN Radio when I was doing a WBEZ with Reset. So it was an easy opportunity when they said they wanted to do it for Chicago, you know, it was a, it was a no-brainer to say, “OK, well, you know, could you do a talk show in an email format?” And that's what we've been, that's really our ethos, our mission statement, our philosophy, Monica and I, that this is a talk show in an email format, and it seems to be working.Eng 5:19 In fact, when we are when we're over length on these newsletters, Justin's like, “Oh, we gotta cut it for time.” I'm like, “Justin, we're not doing radio.”Kaufmann 5:28 It's hard to lose the little radio things like “cut for time.” “Listeners,” I always— Our readers are listeners, I always say that.Meyerson 5:37 It's easy to get those mixed up. You know, sharing some of that same professional DNA with you guys, I know that one of the hardest things I find in creating an email newsletter is deciding what not to put in. Because, as Monica has said, there's no time restriction, there's no length restriction, and deciding what doesn't go in is harder than deciding what does go in. How do you wrestle with that?Eng 6:00 Well, we do have a length: Nothing over 950 words. But that does make it harder. I mean, Chicago is full of, you know, a million stories in the naked city. And so how do you choose, you know, four or five a day? It's a terrible Sophie's choice to make.Kaufmann 6:16 That has been an issue where I think a lot of the editors and everyone were like, “You know, you're gonna have to do this every day, you're gonna watch out— Finding content will be an issue.” For Monica and I—because we've covered the city for years, and you know, this, Charlie; I read your newsletters and same idea—you could do 50 stories, you could do 100 stories. I mean, there's— time is nothing, so you're just like, yeah, every night at 10 o'clock, after we put the thing to bed, I'm like, “Darn it, we didn't talk about this, or we didn't do this.” And that reminds me of when I worked at 'BEZ and 'GN as well, where you would be down on yourself because you missed the topic that you think Chicago wanted to talk about.Meyerson 6:52 As we record this August 22, 2022, you've been with Axios just a bit more than a year. What's been a high point of that year or so with Axios?Kaufmann 7:00 I think, to me, the highlight has been just connecting with Chicago readers. I would have never thought this would be this successful. I mean, at the time we tape this, we're over 80,000 people who are signed up for it. The open rate is way above the average. And people are engaging and sending us emails on a daily basis on every story we do. It's way more than I ever had at WGN or WBEZ. I think that that has much to do with the format—I mean, people at their computers are like I can easily respond to this. But that has been the high point to me is watching that sort of evolved engagement from some of the other things that were— I mean, you know, Charlie, talk radio is all about engaged. So by getting people on the phone, like, that's where it's supposed— you think that's ingrained in the secret sauce of an AM talk radio station like WGN, but this supersized it. We're talking hundreds and hundreds of emails and people who want to engage.Eng 7:56 They can be overwhelming at times—because, yeah, it's like, “Oh, I want to respond to all 150 people who wrote to us today sharing you know, where they like to go, you know, for a picnic in Chicago, or, you know, what they remember about Tower Records.” So, yeah, similarly, I think, you know, the engagement. Yeah, of course, I got COVID during our first or before our first retreat, so I couldn't go, and Justin just loves to rub it in about how fun it was.Kaufmann 8:25 It was such a fun time without Monica. That really I think that's the secret sauce is that Monica wasn't there.Eng 8:30 Leave that old wet blanket home.Meyerson 8:32 All right, how about the low point of your first year with Axios? Monica?Eng 8:36 Oh, jeepers, I wouldn't say low point. But, I think, you know: Breaking news. During the strike, when omicron was raging and the CPS and CTU were fighting. We were doing really long days. And it was like, “Oh, shoot, something else just happened. Let's, you know, break the thing open again.” It can kind of it's actually very exciting to cover breaking news. But it was wearing and I think, you know, and well and then the Highland Park thing, day after day, turns into a manhunt it turns into to these things. And our bosses are actually great. They're like, “Look, are you guys feeling worn down? What can we do to kind of rejuvenate you.”Kaufmann 9:20 I think because we are news media creatures at best and at heart, it becomes really difficult to shut it off. And so, if there are breaking news stories on top of breaking news stories, we're not the type to bury our head in the sand. We're the type to say it doesn't matter if it's 8 o'clock, 10 o'clock at night, 11 o'clock, we get up and we start working again. And that is just part of the pitfalls of the job. I mean that you get burnout. You don't get a chance to have any sort of renewal moment or time to rest. You just gotta keep going.Meyerson 9:53 Just six years after its founding Axios is being bought by Cox Enterprises, the cable communications and historically a newspaper company, for a little more than half a billion dollars. What's that mean for you and Axios Chicago? Are you both millionaires now?Eng 10:09 Well, I guess quasi-millionaires maybe like, multi. It's actually, you know, I've been and Justin's been at companies that have been bought before, and it's usually bad, bad news. It actually appears to be good news, in this case. And, and our bosses made sure that they got a really good deal for employees as well. As far as we can tell, they're not going to touch the journalism, they just actually want more local journalism. Cox seems to really love the local end of it. And so I think it means we get more love and, and, and our bosses are talking about this as a multi-generational thing. They want Axios to be around generations after they're gone. And I think, as far as I can tell, that's, that's really gonna help with this. Kaufmann 10:59 Yeah, they're saying all the right things.Meyerson 11:00 When you say “good deal for employees,” what does that really mean? Eng 11:03 We get to sell a third of our stock. So everyone is vested, even people who have been there a short time, and you can sell a third of your stock to Cox and then later, we can sell it for actually an even better deal—you know, depending on the valuation of the company at the time.Kaufmann 11:17 You know, Axios is a young company. And it is interesting to see the difference in philosophy and styles when a young company is bought, as opposed to an older company. And I've been on both sides of the spectrum. I was there when WGN Radio was sold to Nexstar, before that tried to be sold to Sinclair. That is a different feeling. That's a feeling of dread. And, you know, they're coming in to change formats or cut or like even work in the newspapers. That's not what this is, this is a win for Axios, they got a media company to buy the product for a pretty sizable amount of money. And they look at it as this is an indicator and also, I would think, an encouraging sign that people are interested in the future of local news.Meyerson 12:03 Between the two of you, you have by my count, more than half a century of experience in newspapers and radio. What's your take on this, this email news business? Is it a fad? Is it here for the long run? Is it the successor in any way to traditional radio and television? Or is it something that you expect is going to fade away as something else comes along?Kaufmann 12:23 Well, I will say this: I think that obviously you've been a pioneer and doing email, and you've you found your voice, and that's really what it's about. It's not that everybody can go to email and, and be like, “All right, I'm just going to transfer my product to this new format and it's gonna work.” I mean, it's the same tenets. You have to be engaging, you have to have personality, it's about the tone. Everything is the same. It's just you're using words, and I think it's very akin to maybe what we saw in the early 2000s, with the blog movement. I think that that was something that at first people were like, “What, you're gonna put your—this is in the newspaper? It's digital? What are we doing?” And you saw some that became very successful and very profitable, and some that were middle of the road and some that died off. And I think that newsletters, especially independent newsletters, are in the same ballpark. I think it's the same game. It's just evolved. And I think that advertisers are more interested in putting their money into email newsletters because it's been tried and true by now.Eng 13:26 Yeah, if you'd asked me a year ago, I would have said, “What the heck email newsletters?” I mean, actually, I'll be honest: At WBEZ they kept saying, “Would you like to write our newsletter?” And I'm like, “Are you kidding me? I'm a reporter! Stop with the insulting questions.” And now, like, I love it. And it really is meeting people where they are. People our age still open email. My daughter, she's like, “Can't you just text it to me, mom?” So maybe these will be texted in the future. But it's respecting their time. It's curating for them. And it's yeah, it's going into the box that they open every morning.Kaufmann 14:05 I think it's all about advertising. And I think that the audience has been there. Charlie, you—we did it together at 'BEZ.Meyerson 14:13 Let's be transparent. You hired me to do WBEZ's— Kaufmann 14:17 Yeah!Meyerson 14:17 Well, it wasn't even— WBEZ in 2013 was not set up to send email to readers. So I did what should have been email but was just a blog at the time.Kaufmann 14:27 Yeah, but it was a news blog. It was similar. It's similar in the way to what you do right now with Square. I mean, it was a very similar idea. But that is where this— I mean, you could see the evolution from those kinds of posts that were important—that people would go to the URL to check it out every morning to see what Charlie had to say about Chicago news. Now, they've just like podcasts, they figured out a way to take these blog posts and give them right to you in an email format. And that is that I mean, if you really think about podcasts, that's where the world changed when you were doing radio and it was appointment and I had to go to a dial. I had to actually punch the numbers in. Now they found technology that just puts it on my phone when I wake up. And that's a big difference. That's why you have … so much audience there because they're not having to do anything. It's almost like the media industry is finally figuring out, you have to go where the audience is at as opposed to trying to get them to come to you.Meyerson 15:20 A colleague in the broadcast business once talked about his organization's ability to train listeners to do certain things at certain times. That seems to be a notion that I think is going away. I don't even know when my favorite TV shows are on, they just show up on my TV when I want to watch—Kaufmann 15:34 When you're ready to watch them! Exactly! Right? I mean, I watched two or three TV shows over the weekend that were season finales from two weeks ago. And I didn't have any problem with it. I knew how to avoid the spoilers. We're not living in this collective zeitgeist anymore, where everybody's watching one episode of Lost. There's a lot going on. And I feel like that is the same with we talked about podcasts, you talking about newsletters, talking about news. And I think that what I find interesting is just the idea that Monica and I are, we get this all the time from listeners—or readers. Sorry, there you go—that say, “I get all my stuff from you.” You know that—Eng 16:11 Which is scary. Come on, guys, you shouldn't be—Kaufmann 16:13 Yeah, it is scary. You should read other stuff for sure. I mean, but I think it'd be the same with your readers, Charlie. I mean, they're coming to you, they can go get the stories from different places. But they're coming to you for that five, three to five minutes in the morning. For them to say, this is what I this is what's going on. And this is what I need to know what's going on.Meyerson 16:28 You know, “We read the news so you don't have to” is one approach to email newsletters, I think. How has the pandemic played out for you, as you create the Axios Chicago newsletter? Monica? Eng 16:40 Well, we started it like 1/3 or halfway into the pandemic. And so, I'm thrilled to be at an organization that says “We will be remote all the time.” If you're in New York, and you want to go to the New York office, or in Virginia and want to go there, that's great. But they say “Home is where your office is,” and we get a nice fat stipend every month to make our home a nicer place. And you can spend it on flowers or a dog or whatever — Meyerson 17:12 A dog? I'm impressed. Eng 17:14 I mean, anything that will make your home a nicer place to do your job. But for younger people for whom work is like the place where you're gonna meet your mate, and you can learn from older journalists, I could see how it's a problem. The world, you know, we know it all.Meyerson 17:29 You're both youngsters compared to me! Justin, how did the pandemic play out for you?Kaufmann 17:33 Well, I mean, I left—I got, you know, tossed outta WG
