Any chance of a WGN America simulcast this year?
Per the official McDonalds Thanksgiving Parade site , it will be on WGN, WGN America and live streamed on WGNtv.com.
This schedule confirms it.
Do you think WGN will rejig the schedule to have the 4-6 block go to 7 AM?
I feel Dan and Lauren should get an extra hour or contribute IN STUDIO between 6-10.
Until they have enough confidence (ratings proof) in that early team, Larry, Robin, and company will go on at 6, and continue to beat everyone else in that hour.
I wonder how the McDonald's Thanksgiving Parade survived the exodus of Chicago programming on WGNA.
Is it possible that McDonald's contract for the naming rights ensures national carriage?
It's a safe bet that when WGN signed the original contract/and subsequent renewals with the Chicago Festival Association, coverage on WGN America was part of the deal. Any change in station ownership (or the possibility there of) wouldn't instantly nullify that contract. They can however simply choose to not renew it when the time comes.
The fact that McDonalds is the title sponsor of the parade is a non issue.
WGN Morning News just announced that Pat Tomasulo talk show is called Man of the People with Pat Tomasulo. It'll air on Saturdays at 10p starting in January 2018.
And the promo...
More info from Feder.
I'm excited that they're adding original programming that's not a newscast. I can't imagine they'll build a new set for a weekly 30-minute show, but I'm not sure where they'll put the live audience. I'm assuming this will be pre-taped during the week? It'll be interesting to see how the ratings compare to the weekday news at 10. Of course the inevitable question is what will the Sinclair bigwigs think of this.
Tom Skilling is employee of the year after this tweet. It's 10 years ago all over again.
Who wants to help stock the 'Man of the People' office?
No, this is not a joke. Mostly.
