WGN-AM/Chicago is about to begin airing select NFL football games on Sunday afternoons, reports Chicago media columnist Robert Feder. Recently acquired by Nexstar, the News/Talk outlet will air a play-by-play lineup from Compass Media Networks. He says WGN hopes to use the games to promote other programming on the station. The Chicago Bears continue to air on crosstown Entercom News WBBM-AM and WCFS-FM.
Feder also reports that under Executive VP Sean Compton, the station will convert its live streaming to a full simulcast of its on-air broadcasts beginning Monday, October 14.
