In Chicago, Tribune Broadcasting also reaches audiences over the radio WGN AM, one of the oldest broadcast stations in the country. Known as “The Voice of Chicago,” WGN Radio is dedicated to being the #1 source of Chicagoland news, information, entertainment and sports. WGN Radio is the official broadcaster of the Chicago Cubs, the Chicago Blackhawks and Northwestern University sports. This year, WGN Radio celebrates 90 years of growing up in Chicago. On June 1, 1924, radio operations that had formerly been home to WDAP were converted by the Chicago Tribune to WGN, with the new call letters paying homage to the “World’s Greatest Newspaper.” WGN quickly proved itself a pioneer in radio and went on to establish several broadcasting “firsts,” such as the Memorial Day 500 (later known as the Indy 500), the Kentucky Derby, and the live courtroom proceedings of the Scopes Monkey Trial.
