Earlier this week, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame announced this year’s nominees for induction into the Cleveland based museum. Meanwhile, in Chicago the Museum of Broadcast Communications workers were installing its latest exhibit. ‘Stay Tuned: Rock on TV’ is the second traveling exhibit to make its way from the Rock Hall to State Street. First Light host Brian O’Keefe got an early look at the exhibit

For more than 15 years the Museum of Broadcast Communications has attracted visitors to its State Street location with a collection that celebrates media and special exhibits. A very successful Saturday Night Live exhibit wrapped up an extended stay at the museum earlier this year, now a new exhibit hopes to make the most the summer tourism season. First Light host Brian O’Keefe visited the ‘Louder Than Words’ exhibit.
