Item Description

This original hand-drawn graphic is the first of many produced as the Chicago Tribune weather page layout is developed each day.  Tom creates graphics such as these for the artists in the WGN Weather Center.  They then render them in computer graphics programs and transfer them to the Chicago Tribune for final editing.  Also enclosed is an example of the final weather page as seen in the Chicago Tribune.  This work is autographed by Tom Skilling.

Tom Skilling is WGN-TV's chief meteorologist.  Tom's reports air daily on the WGN Evening News, WGN News at Nine, WGN News at Ten on wgntv.com and WGN Radio.  In 2018, Tom celebrated his 40th anniversary with WGN-TV.
