Well WGN-TV is humming along rather nicely, thank you very much, so there wasn’t a lot that Nexstar could do to assert its minty-fresh ownership of the station.
So, they turned to WGN Radio.
As Robert Feder reports, less than 24 hours after acquiring the former Tribune Broadcasting news/talk flagship, Nexstar fired Todd Manley, station manager and vice president of content, and named news and operations director Mary Sandberg Boyle interim boss.
The station is mired in 16th place in Windy City ratings, with no daypart ranked in the top ten so change was inevitable.
Manley headed programming for the past six years and Nexstar hints that more changes are coming
