Day Off At Stake In Emmis Employee Super Bowl Wager

EMMIS' CHICAGO and INDIANAPOLIS offices are really rooting hard for their respective local teams in the SUPER BOWL, and it's not just civic pride fueling the support.
If the BEARS win, the EMMIS CHICAGO cluster gets the day off on MONDAY (other than the on-air staff), while the same would be true for INDY if the COLTS win. EMMIS is one of several companies in the two markets with workplace bets and benefits tied to the SUPER BOWL. Some employers are granting workers MONDAY off regardless of the game's outcome.
