For those of you IN Chicago, Superstation WGN....is no more.
The rebranding of Tribco's 'underutilized' asset (by their own words) began today, Memorial Day. as "WGN AMERICA -- TV YOU CAN'T IGNORE.
The new logo features the eyes of a woman. (Lake Elisnore Storm of the California League: Take note)
Randy Michaels, now the head of Tribco Broadcasting is a guy who really can upset the apple cart -- a former shock jock, he ran Clear Channel Communications for years until he was forced out. It is about time that the rather tired 'superstation' be put to pasture, as 25 years ago -- it meant something. Now -- so what? (And when you run "Corner Gas" there's nothing "Super" about your programming.)
Ah, the days of running "The Last Farewell" by Roger Whittaker over a WGN station ID, are indeed -- long gone.....
