TRIBUNE MEDIA News-Talk WGN-A/CHICAGO has named its BEARS Insider reporter ADAM HOGE as Sports Editor-in-Chief of its "digital content incubator" WGN PLUS. He will continue as BEARS reporter and co-host of WGN's "THE BEAT" on SATURDAY and SUNDAY afternoons.
“We live in an ‘on-demand’ world today and radio is no different. That’s really what WGN PLUS is all about,” said HOGE. “I’m looking forward to working with such a great lineup of sports personalities to create the type of content our listeners and readers are seeking.”
“Getting ADAM’s blog in the WGN family was a huge win for us last year and now we plan to capitalize on his coaching skills across our digital platforms,” said VP/Programming and Content TODD MANLEY. “With TRIBUNE MEDIA’s launch of GRACENOTE SPORTS, WGN has an even greater arsenal of resources.”
WGN PLUS will be streaming a BLACKHAWKS STANLEY CUP Marathon on JULY 4th at noon, featuring play-by-play of the STANLEY CUP-winning games from 2010, 2013 and 2015.
