EDSEC: Duncan Names Rock N Roll Communications Chief

Peter 2 color Tribune columnist Eric Zorn confirms today that Arne Duncan plans to bring communications guru Peter Cunningham with him from Chicago to be his communications chief (Change of Subject).  Feared and loathed by critics of CPS, Cunningham has helped engineer a long string of good news about Duncan and the Chicago school system.  He also spent six years as head speechwriter for Mayor Daley, and did stints working for other politicoes before that (Hartigan, Burris (!), Burke).A bit of a character, Cunningham is often seen at local music venues like The Hideout.  He plays in a band and his daughter is a musician.
