Host of this new series on WGN-TV, Chicago morning news anchor Larry Potash explores the BACKSTORY behind some of the most intriguing tales in history, culture, religion and science from Chicago and beyond.

A Chicago story tied to the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier and a hidden symbol in the Statue of Liberty are two of the backstories you’ll hear--along with a little insider’s perspective on his show.  Larry will share how Backstory came about, how he chooses his stories, what makes a good story and how the longer format enables his storytelling.

Larry Potash and his wife Lisa and two daughters live in Lake Forest.
