In the ‘One More Thing’ segment, First Light host Brian O'Keefe visited Brookfield Zoo to learn a little about two symbols of the American west, bison and wolves. Both species aren't bothered in the least by the region's winter weather.

One More Thing: Brookfield Bears

Maybe it’s because Chicago isn’t in it, but it’s a good bet two of Brookfield Zoo’s Bears will sleep right through the Super Bowl. I visited the 'Great Bear Wilderness' exhibit at the zoo recently with curator of mammals Amy Roberts

LSSU Adds To The Banished Words List

If you're sick of hearing people say "nothingburger," "impactful," "drill down," and "pre-owned" you're not alone. Those are just a few of the newly-banished words and phrases for over-use,
