As promised, CBS RADIO debuted its simulcast of News WBBM-A/CHICAGO on former AC FRESH FM 105.9 this morning shortly past 8a CBS RADIO/CHICAGO SVP/Market Manager ROD ZIMMERMAN, along with AMD Co-Anchors FELICIA MIDDLEBROOKS and PAT CASSIDY, were joined by MAYOR RAHM EMANUEL to help with the switchover.
They were then treated to an in-studio visit with GOVERNOR QUINN and a WBBM NEWSRADIO newsroom celebration.
CHICAGO is now the first market in the country to have two News FMs going head to head ... could NEW YORK be next? Stay tuned.
