TRIBUNE MEDIA News-Talk WGN-A and Sports WGWG-LP (THE GAME 87.7 FM)/CHICAGO were knocked off the air for 20 minutes this morning due to a power outage at the TRIBUNE TOWER.
The initial cause of the power outage is being attributed to a burst pipe in the sprinkler system on the building's eighth floor. The stations went off the air shortly before 7a and returned about 20 minutes later.
