    Chance The Rapper did the weather this morning. It went as well as you expected to go.

    Two little notes from the first day without Mark: Ben is pulling the shift tonight, and he's wearing the tie Mark gave him at the end of the four on Friday. Also, they're prepared to go without a named replacement for awhile, as the 6 o'clock hour of the evening show is using a talent open with the 4 remain anchors.

    I just heard on the morning news that Jim Ramsey is retiring after 30 years.

    It's going to be getting crowded at the retired anchor bingo hall.

    I'm not surprised but am sad to see him go. The entire WGN weekend team, save for Jackie Bange, has retired within 18 months.

    I loved that weekend team. Jackie, Bob, Jim, Rich. THE weekend team to watch in Chicago.

    I always watched the News at Nine on Sundays on WGNA while I was away from Chicago, especially the Sunday 9pm newscasts. Instant Replay is basically unwatchable online now because it's blacked out for most of the show.

    Part of me wonders when Dan Roan will hang it up.

    Feder hinted this morning that there will be another retirement announcement in Chicago media by the end of the year. Whether or not it's someone from WGN is unclear. There admittedly isn't a long list of retirement-aged personalities left among the 5 stations, so it might be quick to predict, unless, of course, it's someone from behind the scenes, print, or radio.
