14 Sep WGN Radio Announces MeTV FM Radio Partnership
Beginning today, WGN Radio will deliver newscasts on Weigel Broadcasting’s MeTV FM 87.7. The “MeTV FM News Minute” will be featured twice hourly during morning drive.
“WGN’s programming is complementary to our music format and the credibility of WGN’s news and information makes this a win-win for both stations and our compatible audiences,” said Neal Sabin, Vice Chairman of Weigel Broadcasting.
These news, weather and sports updates will be anchored by WGN Radio’s Andrea Darlas, Steve Grzanich, Ryan Burrow and Vic Vaughn.
“When you have award-winning journalists like ours, it makes perfect sense to share them.” WGN Radio Vice President of Content & Programming Todd Manley said, “There’s clearly something bold and brilliant about what Neal’s team at MeTV FM has created, and we look forward to doing more together.”
This new partnership marks the first of many collaborations to come with the FM station, featuring timeless songs from the 1960s through 1980s.
