The Hottest Party in Town:'s Launch at the James Hotel

The James Hotel was packed for the Launch Party on Thursday, January 26th,  for Chicago's only online network,!   Everyone who was anyone walked the Red Carpet where I was interviewing for the livestream camera as well as for my own show (Candid Candace Chicago).  All of the  hosts were in attendance and talking up their show concepts with the crowd:  Amanda Puck (Dish It),  DC Crenshaw (Chicago Unplugged), Tatiana Garrett (Chicago Tails),  David Martin IV (4 X 4), Chef Rick Gresh (Chefs in the Kitchen),  Chefs Veronica and Mark Kwasigroch (Dream Cakes) and Overexposure TV (for all things techie).

Bob Mills, President of parent company Internet Streaming Corp. and founder of, said in a statement, "With people always on the go, access is the key, and our programming delivers pertinent information to Chicago and beyond, all in the palm of your hand." Executive Producer, Bill Natale, brings a wealth of experience to the website as well having been an Emmy-Award winning producer/director and executive member of the Directors Guild of America.  Natale is also the Executive Director of the Illinois Center for Broadcasting, Chicago Campus as well as ED of Internet Streaming Corp.

Congrats to Lindsay Hoey (Director of Communications), John Basile (Production Director) and Kim Venezia  (Executive Liaison) for bringing to life!
