TRIBUNE MEDIA's "WGNPLUS" streaming and podcast service has added "JONES AND MIKE," a podcast with BRIAN JONES and MIKE NOONAN.
WGN VP/Content and Programming TODD MANLEY said, “WGNPLUS is a place for us to take risks and get behind innovative talent. JONES and MIKE fit that mold perfectly.”
JONES said, “When we set out to create this show we wanted to bring it to the biggest possible audience of 35 to 54-year-old people interested in hearing lifestyle talk. WGNPLUS has a valuable audience and we’re very happy to be associated with a blue-chip brand like WGN!”
“Thanks to TODD MANLEY and JIMMY DE CASTRO for this opportunity,” added NOONAN. “They have the vision to realize that WGN and TRIBUNE BROADCASTING are in the content business, not necessarily in the business of making ‘radio’ or ‘TV’. Creating compelling, entertaining content is the constant, whether it’s live, on-demand, coming out of the thing in your car called a ‘radio’, or coming out of the thing in your car or pocket called a ‘phone.’ ”
