June 30, 2011 at 4:24 AM (PT)
TIME OUT CHICAGO's ROBERT FEDER reports that former TRIBUNE Talk WGN-A/CHICAGO News Director CHARLIE MEYERSON will be part of the news team at MERLIN MEDIA's new CHICAGO acquisitions.
MEYERSON left WGN on JUNE 17th, and FEDER reports that MERLIN VP/Internet Initiatives ANDY FRIEDMAN (who FEDER describes as "de facto news director") has added the veteran newsman to work on the new format coming to Alternative WKQX (Q101) in mid-AUGUST.
Meanwhile, ALL ACCESS hears word about demos being produced that indeed indicate a new format for Q101. Will the market be hearing "CHICAGO'S FM NEWS 101-1" by late SUMMER?
