‘Nightly’ produces clever two person package for NYC, Chicago skyscraper rivalry

[field name=iframe]

On Tuesday’s “NBC Nightly News,” the broadcast covered the battle between New York City and Chicago to lay claim to the title of home of the country’s tallest building — with a little bit of a twist.

The creative package, featuring New York City based Katy Tur and Chicago based Kevin Tibbles, presented a lively point-counterpoint comparison of what the two cities offer, including poking fun at Chicago style v. New York style pizza as well as other inevitable comparisons between the two cities.

The package was sharply edited to include back and forth between the two correspondents — and even ended with a dual tag.
