"Extension 720 with MILT ROSENBERG" ends its 39-year run on DECEMBER 20th with a final retrospective show featuring notable moments, guests and previous discussions that have aired on this illustrious program.
"MILT has added another rich chapter to WGN Radio's history and we thank him for his service," said GSM/Interim General Manager JEFF HILL. "Though MILT will not be a full-time program host, he will continue to be a show contributor and have a presence at the station. We're also very excited to add two female voices to our lineup and to CHICAGO radio in CAROL ROTH and TURI RYDER.”
ROSENBERG added, "I'm thankful to my listeners and I’m proud to have shared almost 40 years with them. We attempted to provide intelligent radio featuring the movers and observers of history being made as well as programs on established history, the popular and 'high' arts, and the sciences from cosmology to sociology -- all mixed with frequent forays into more light-hearted fare."
