21 May WGN Plus Adds ‘Gen X Talk Show’ Jones and Mike
The evolution of WGN Radio’s digital content incubator “WGN Plus” continues as it adds Jones and Mike to its lineup of media offerings. The show will be distributed via WGNPlus.com as well the WGN Plus app in the Apple and Google Play stores.
Todd Manley, WGN Radio Vice President of Content and Programming, says, “WGNplus is a place for us to take risks and get behind innovative talent. Jones and Mike fit that mold perfectly.”
Show host Brian Jones adds, “When we set out to create this show we wanted to bring it to the biggest possible audience of 35 to 54-year-old people interested in hearing lifestyle talk. WGN Plus has a valuable audience and we’re very happy to be associated with a blue-chip brand like WGN!”
“Thanks to Todd Manley and Jimmy de Castro for this opportunity,” said host Mike Noonan. “They have the vision to realize that WGN and Tribune Broadcasting are in the content business, not necessarily in the business of making ‘radio’ or ‘TV’. Creating compelling, entertaining content is the constant, whether it’s live, on-demand, coming out of the thing in your car called a ‘radio’, or coming out of the thing in your car or pocket called a ‘phone.’ ”
“Jones and Mike” is available on barter through Revolutionary Media Group. To sample the composite and recent shows, and inquire about clearance, visit http://jonesandmike.com/affiliate
