YP Chicago & AGBU Chicago Support WTTW Broadcasting of Armenian Heritage Specials
With the support of AGBU Chicago and the AGBU Young Professionals of Chicago (YP Chicago), WTTW Channel 11 broadcast the following two Armenian specials in June: “The Armenians: A Story of Survival” and “The Armenian Genocide” by Emmy award winning filmmaker Andrew Goldberg.
Viken L. Attarian, the former Chairman of AGBU Montréal and regular panelist on The Link on Radio Canada International, was the special in-studio guest. Over 30 members of the local Armenian community volunteered their time working the phone banks that evening during the pledge drive, including AGBU Chicago Chair Sona Diorio, YP Chicago Chair Samantha Simonian, local clergy and supporters, along with special guest Karl Guiragossian from Montréal.
