CHICAGO'S NEW TV STAR -- SOLDIER FIELD?
Published March 5, 1998
Soldier Field was a "financial success" in '97, as the Chicago Park District rented it out for commercial and TV shoots. Film crews for "about" 10 commercials and the TV series "Early Edition" rented the stadium out last year, accounting for "about" 5% of the stadium's gross revenue of $13.5M, up from $11M in '96. Commercials shot at Soldier Field included an Edge shaving gel spot with Brett Favre, a Nike ad with Michael Jordan, as well as Wheaties and Lite Beer spots (Della De Lafuente, CHICAGO SUN-TIMES, 3/5).
