ROE CONN has a new deal at TRIBUNE MEDIA News-Talk WGN-A/CHICAGO, reports ROBERTFEDER.COM. CONN will remain in afternoons through JANUARY 2020 under the contract extension.
CONN joined WGN for afternoon drive in JANUARY 2015 after 25 years at crosstown CUMULUS News-Talk WLS-A.
“ROE’s passion for relevant stories and magnetic characters has turned afternoons on WGN into a must-hear daily ritual. He’s become the ring leader for one of my favorite radio ensembles,” said Vice President of Programming and Content TODD MANLEY.
“Being at WGN has been the most special experience of my career,” said CONN. “People make the difference and this station has the most diligent, professional and collegial folks I’ve ever worked with. But what continues to amaze me every day is WGN’s dynamic, engaged and loyal audience. It’s an incredible honor to be a part of their day.”
