Thread: Nobody loves WGN as much as WGN

    You may very well be correct. It'd be interesting to see who WRME cross-cumes with. I only made that suggestion because I believe the median listener age of WGN and WRME is "up there." In WGN's case, it's gotta be north of age 60.

    I wonder if the availability of Newsradio WBBM on the FM dial has taken a good chunk of cume away from the AM band altogether?

    I also cannot help but wonder if WRME has snagged a lot of 55+ listenership away from WGN.

    I don't think there will be a lot of people right now would want to imagine what their ratings will be like 5 years from now

Yes, I know every radio station talks up how terrific they are, but WGN's on-air talent takes it to a new level of self-congratulating.

    I love that they made their own Walk Of Fame which is a little like going down to the Trophy Shop and having them make you an award for yourself proclaiming that you're a wonderful person- it might make you feel special but it doesn't actually mean anything. And before someone says it, yes I know the station and talent have gotten several awards and accolades that actually matter and are well-deserved.

    Yes, WGN has a long history as a popular news/talk radio station, and has had a lot of talent on air over the years, but all the pats on the back they give themselves get very old, very fast.
    Do you think WGN Radio will say something like "we think we are lousy, we think you need to listen to something better", no of course they aren't going to say that.

    It can't be, maybe for most listeners but I am no where near the age of 6-, and I listen to them at times.
