The CHICAGO TRIBUNE's CHICAGONOW blog branches out into radio with a weekly show on sister Talk WGN-A/CHICAGO, "CHICAGONOW RADIO," launching SATURDAY (11/14) 9a-1p CT. The show will be hosted by former crosstown CITADEL Talk WLS-A ROE CONN sidekick BILL LEFF and will feature contributions from CHICAGONOW bloggers.
"WGN wanted to create a boundary-free radio celebration of CHICAGO life," said WGN PD KEVIN METHENY. "CHICAGONOW is a collection of fascinating people who can't stop themselves from constantly telling CHICAGO's story as they see it in a dynamic, refreshing and sometimes disturbing way. This will be a crazy collision of experiences and perspectives."
"CHICAGONOW is home to 126 of CHICAGO's best experts," said CHICAGONOW Editorial Dir. TRACY SCHMIDT. "Every day they write about what makes CHICAGO both great and second-rate. On air, our bloggers will never be at a loss for words. We can't wait to hear what they have to say every SATURDAY on WGN."
