June 27, 2016 at 7:04 AM (PT)
STEVE COCHRAN has signed a contract extension with TRIBUNE MEDIA News-Talk WGN-A/CHICAGO, keeping the morning host with the station through DECEMBER 2020. COCHRAN has hosted mornings at WGN since 2013.
“STEVE makes it look easy with his affable brand of intelligence, but nobody works harder to gather and share the stories Chicagoans care about,” said VP/Content and Programming TODD MANLEY. “He’s got the raw talent and work ethic we need for many years to come.”
“It’s an honor to get up at 4a every day to work where WALLY PHILLIPS, BOB COLLINS and SPIKE O’DELL worked,” COCHRAN said. “Then to work for JIMMY DE CASTRO and TODD MANLEY and with (news anchor/reporter) ANDREA (DARLAS), (sports anchor) DAVE (EANET), (traffic reporter) MARY (VAN DE VELDE). and my crew makes me a very lucky guy.”
