TRIBUNE Talk WGN-A/CHICAGO is shifting "DEAN RICHARDSâ€™ SUNDAY MORNING"Â to 6:30-11a (CT) starting OCTOBER 7th. Â The move bumps "THE SUNDAY PAPERS WITH RICK KOGAN" off the station.
â€œDEANâ€™s show has been a staple on SUNDAY mornings since 1994, and this new timeslot will give him an earlier start -- avoiding sports broadcast pre-emptions -- while still airing during part of his longtime timeslot,â€ said PD BILL WHITE. â€œAs a CHICAGO native, DEAN truly embodies the WGN hometown quality and weâ€™re excited to expand the show.â€
On KOGAN's departure, WHITE added,Â â€œRICK is a true CHICAGO legend and has been a mainstay on WGN for the past 13 years. We expect him to have a great experience in his new endeavor, but the door is open for future projects down the road at WGN.â€
