Rudy Vorkapic

Today, Rudy Vorkapic practices a biting brand of fact-based satire at the New Orleans Levee. But he started his career in traditional Chicago media.

Rudy is a gifted journalist with tremendous stories about absolutely everything, including: the maniacal Southtown editor who inspired a union campaign and talked too much (“I was Deep Throat”); collecting the “stiff list” while working at the legendary City News Bureau and “cheaping” out deaths; covering a tragic tornado in Plainfield and pulling himself off assignment to pursue another story; antagonizing crooked politicians like Dollar Bill Jefferson and much, much more!

Plus, he has great advice on how to cover a 107 year old’s birthday. An entertaining episode!
