2022 saw Gov. JB Pritzker and Democrats win big at the polls, the state budget picture improved and the former Illinois Speaker Michael Madigan, who maintain a decades-long grip on power, was indicted.

Our traditional year end wrap-up show features host Sean Crawford, Professor Emeritus Charlie Wheeler and Chicago Tonight's Amanda Vinicky.

The former director of the Public Affairs Reporting (PAR) graduate program is Professor Charles N. Wheeler III, a veteran newsman who came to the University of Illinois at Springfield following a 24-year career at the Chicago Sun-Times.
Amanda Vinicky moved to Chicago Tonight on WTTW-TV PBS in 2017.
