Legendary News Anchor Bill Kurtis Comes to Waubonsee
Legendary TV journalist Bill Kurtis will present “Recipes for Disease: How the American Diet is Making Us Sick” on Tuesday, Sept. 24, at 7 p.m. in the Auditorium of Waubonsee Community College’s Sugar Grove Campus, Route 47 at Waubonsee Drive. Tickets are $15 and are available at www.waubonseetickets.com. All tickets are subject to a transaction fee.
During his presentation, Kurtis will discuss the means and motives behind an American diet that is over-processed, over-sugared, over-salted and contains too much fat.
While best known as a former news anchor for WBBM Channel 2, Kurtis is also a rancher, conservationist and founder of the Tallgrass Beef Company. In a message on Tallgrass’ website, Kurtis writes, “I started Tallgrass Beef Company to raise cattle the way they were meant to be raised. As a result, we have a process that’s better for the animals and the planet, and products that are better for dinner and for you.”
