CHICAGO radio and TV veterans and married couple BOB SIROTT and MARIANNE MURCIANO, presently hosts of a SUNDAY night show on TRIBUNE Talk WGN-A/CHICAGO, will be moving to weekdays for a shift to be announced within the next few weeks, reports CHICAGO media reporter ROBERT FEDER. SIROTT will continue to anchor the 9p (CT) newscast on crosstown FOX O&O WFLD-TV (FOX 32) for now while a new contract is negotiated.
WGN Pres./GM JIMMY DECASTRO told FEDER in a statement, “BOB's respected reputation and vast experiences on radio and television make him the perfect fit for ‘CHICAGO’s Very Own 720.' I'm excited to expand BOB's role and allow him to share more of his rich CHICAGO stories, and MARIANNE adds another strong female voice to the tradition of WGN Radio."
