WGN-AM/Chicago inks a contract extension with afternoon host Roe Conn into the year 2020 from 3-7pm. A lifelong Chicagoan, Conn has been one of the city's top rated radio personalities for the last two decades. Conn began hosting weekday afternoons at WGN Radio in late January, 2015. Daily contributors to the show include WGN-TV news anchor Mark Suppelsa and chief meteorologist Tom Skilling with Anna Davlantes as co-host.

"Roe's passion for relevant stories and magnetic characters has turned afternoons on WGN into a must-hear daily ritual. He's become the ring leader for one of my favorite radio ensembles," said VP/Programming and Content Todd Manley.

"Being at WGN has been the most special experience of my career," added Conn. "People make the difference and this station has the most diligent, professional and collegial folks I've ever worked with. But what continues to amaze me every day is WGN's dynamic, engaged and loyal audience. It's an incredible honor to be a part of their day."
