The patty that saves the Tribune?

Coming to CLTV on April 16, The Cheeseburger Show, with feature writer Kevin Pang. Well, at least it isn't Kim Barker or Paul Salopek.

Pang writes:

"It’s an idea I came up with after getting dozens of e-mails every time I wrote about cheeseburgers. People in Chicago (or anywhere it seems) are fiercely territorial about their burgers. So why not go around every week, highlight a few burger places and bring a camera crew?

"It airs on CLTV six times a week beginning April 16 and in HD at chicagotribune.com. People can download it as a podcast on iTunes too. I grew up in the YouTube generation, making silly little videos with friends, so this has the tone of that, except we’re also trying to provide a public service – 'where can you get a tasty burger around town?'

"And oh, to all those naysayers complaining that 'Tribune Co. is diverting their resources to THIS?!?!', myself and a few friends filmed, edited, did sound, put on the pancake makeup completely by ourselves, on our own time. A labor of love, to be sure.

"And the advertising folks are trying to get a sponsor for this too, so if anything, this will actually (hopefully) bring in coin for Mother Tribune."
