Longtime news anchor, TV host, and radio station owner BILL KURTIS is scheduled to be the first talent signed by JIMMY DECASTRO's new THE CONTENT FACTORY production company, according to the CHICAGO SUN-TIMES' ROBERT FEDER. KURTIS would be the voice of a daily one-minute feature and 15-minute newscast plus a mini-documentary series designed to put KURTIS in the position of "the next PAUL HARVEY."
DECASTRO is partnered with former PREMIERE exec CHRIS CRANE and former AMFM and SPORTING NEWS RADIO exec JOHN COULTER. KURTIS, the longtime WBBM-TV/CHICAGO anchor, is known nationally for his hosting of various A&E network TV shows and as the narrator of the movie "ANCHORMAN: THE LEGEND OF RON BURGUNDY."
