Launched in 2011, the Daily Whale is designed to consolidate industry news, procurement information and election data into one, simple to use space.  We provide detailed coverage of public meetings; original reporting; aggregation of government, business and political news; and a database of the latest public bid opportunities and government contracts in Chicago, Cook County and the State of Illinois. 

Our website and morning and afternoon newsletters form an indispensable resource for our subscribers, helping them identify new opportunities, keep track of changes in the laws and regulations affecting their industries, and make informed business decisions.


The Daily Whale helps me stay on top of current issues in business, government and politics that are affecting Illinois. The more knowledge I have about these issues the better I can represent my clients.
