WGN-A To Air Weekday Host 'Best-Ofs' On Weekends
December 28, 2011 at 7:55 AM (PT)
TRIBUNE Talk WGN-A/CHICAGO has decided to turn some of its weekend programming over the "best of" segments of its weekday personalities. TIMEOUT CHICAGO's ROBERT FEDER reports that highlights of JONATHON BRANDMEIER’s morning show and GARRY MEIER’s afternoon show will air from 1-4p SATURDAYS, and highlights of midday hosts MIKE MCCONNELL and JOHN WILLIAMS will air from 1-4pm SUNDAYS.
"We think it will be a great alternative to the infomercials and paid programs that air on CHICAGO's other Talk stations," WGN PD BILL WHITE said. "Of course we continue to provide live and local news, weather and traffic reports 24/7."
Elsewhere on weekends, BRIAN NOONAN will host a new live show from 6-9pm on SUNDAYS, followed by BOB SIROTT and MARIANNE MURCIANO’s Sunday Night Special at 9p.
