WGN Simulcast On 87.7 FM Extended For Another Month
February 2, 2015 at 4:08 AM (PT)
The temporary simulcast of TRIBUNE News-Talk WGN-A/CHICAGO over the 87.7 FM audio of low-power analog TV station WGWG-LP will continue through FEBRUARY, as TV station owner VENTURE TECHNOLOGIES GROUP has requested that the simulcast keep going for another month while it arranges replacement programming.
WGN VP/Content and Programming TODD MANLEY told the CHICAGO TRIBUNE that VENTURE "has asked us to simulcast for another month, and we've agreed to do that." TRIBUNE pulled the plug on its programming of WGWG as Sports THE GAME 87.7 FM at the end of 2014 and put WGN on in a simulcast to play out the end of its deal to program the station.
