Chicago Welcomes Rosie

Harpo Studios Sign

The Rosie Show has been on for a couple of months now, and if you haven’t seen her around town, you can at least see Rosie O’Donnnel’s name in the West Loop.

The main sign in front of Harpo Studios (1058 West Washington Street) has been updated to reflect that it is the place where the comedian now does her show, and Oprah Winfrey no longer does.

Chicago used to be the home of a lot of television talk shows, but nearly all of them left recently because the state of Connecticut gave them big tax breaks to relocate.
