Random WGN thread


Recommended Posts

Drury, Rosenthal, Sanders, Suppelsa, Donlon, Cortopassi. So continues the grand WGN tradition of down-to-earth, midwestern, middle-aged white dudes.

 

Meanwhile, I thought he looked familiar...

One of the final WGN station IDs you'll see during a Cubs broadcast   Seen at the end of the retrospective during the "10th Inning" broadcast after the game on WGN.   https:/

'GN Sports' launches tonight, and I can't stress enough how much I love this look. The evolution of logos is so nice.    

And here's the full, 15-minute farewell. Very nice.   https://wgntv.com/news/wgn-anchor-steve-sanders-retires-after-37-years/

Just heard an ad on WGN Radio for a new show premiering on WGN9 called 'Chicago Football Weekly.' It'll air Saturday nights at 6pm. Didn't catch the launch date, and don't know the run time or hosts, but it'll displace the first portion of the 3-hour, themed 'Friends' block.

I haven't watched the Sunday 9pm news much this fall, but I noticed that tonight, they dedicated the entire 9:40pm-10pm block to sports. Even though the actual show Instant Replay was quietly cancelled during the pandemic sports shutdown, they still basically did a pseudo-Instant Replay tonight. Have they been doing this all throughout the fall sports season, or did they only do it tonight because the Bears are trying to make a playoff push and because it's slow news during the holidays?

I noticed this the last few weeks. It's recent, but not unique to tonight.

The red live bug is also notable. I don't recall that when they introduced these new L3's within the last couple weeks. The word I've gotten is that WGN won't get the NewsNation look, in any form, but I doubt this is a part of a larger rollout. It still is odd, though, that they'd debut any new stuff if things are gonna be blown up within a few months.
