When a camera crew arrived at Rosie’s Home Cookin’ on May 15, 2023, to report on public safety in the suburbs, relative to Chicago, the popular diner located at 1567 N. Aurora Road received double exposure during air time on both FOX News via “Breakfast with Friends” and FOX Business with Stuart Varney.

During his visit to Rosie’s Home Cookin’, Gianno Caldwell was quick to lend his microphone to folks at the diner. Here Caldwell is sandwiched between Lynn Lowder and Sandy Lowder. (PN Photo)

FOX News political analyst Gianno Caldwell spoke with owner-operator Lynn Lowder, a Veteran Marine who served in Vietnam, as well as dozens of other Veterans and diner guests from 5-8AM during the show that highlights the latest in news, weather, sports and entertainment with a casual and spontaneous discourse.

Below are two video links from several of the featured segments presented at Rosie’s Home Cookin’ on May 15, 2023.

Off camera, Caldwell extended his gratitude to many diners in attendance who had expressed condolences regarding the murder of his youngest brother, Christian Caldwell, in Chicago last June 24. Caldwell, always hopeful, continues to seek justice, saying he’s been “disappointed” in the way the Chicago police have been doing their jobs.
