TRIBUNE News/Talk WGN-A/CHICAGO has named BOB SHOMPER their new PD, effective JULY 5. SHOMPER comes to WGN from the OM/PD position at ABC WBAP-A/DALLAS/FT. WORTH.
"BOB is a seasoned broadcaster with vast experience in the news-talk-sports format. His success in working with talent at a major market news/talk station makes him an excellent fit for WGN," said WGN RADIO VP/GM TOM LANGMYER. "Having grown up listening to WGN in the QUAD CITIES, he understands the unique bond WGN has with its listeners throughout the Midwest."
"When SPIKE O’DELL left the QUAD CITIES in 1987 to go to WGN, he grew from star to living legend. That’s the kind of place WGN is," said SHOMPER. "I’ve been blessed to share in the success of some of America’s great broadcasting companies and heritage radio stations like ABC and WBAP. I’m honored to now be a part of the TRIBUNE COMPANY and the legendary WGN."
