Bill Kurtis

Chicago's Own
With over fifty years of television, Bill is probably best known for his four decades with CBS. For 20 years, he has headed up Kurtis Productions where he launched The New Explorers for PBS, Investigative Reports and Cold Case Files for A & E and American Greed for CNBC. He has hosted 200 episodes of American Justice on A & E and is the voice of Illinois tourism as well as the real anchor in Anchorman, the Legend of Ron Burgundy. Suffice it to say that Bill Kurtis’ life would make Indiana Jones look like a little girl.
