Meet the Cicero Community News Media

Editors and staff members of Cicero’s community news media will participate in a panel discussion about local news coverage and share their experiences with local businesses during a panel discussion and meeting of the Cicero Chamber of Commerce to be held on Wednesday, February 26, 2020, beginning at 5 PM at the Cicero Community Center, 2250 S. 49th Avenue, Cicero, Illinois.

Come and meet the representatives of the local community news media and learn how you can communicate with them to strengthen your business. Find out what the news media is interested in and how you can provide information and photographs to appear in their newspaper and magazine publications.

We have invited each newspaper and magazine in the community to send one representative to participate on the Panel to help the Chamber Business Members understand communications and media services.
