The End of WGN as we know it?

Robert Feder's column this morning is a depressing preview of what will happen to WGN when Tribune Media sells them. It's not a matter of if, it's a matter of when, and the two suitors are Rupert Murdoch and Sinclair Broadcasting. Both would try to turn these two powerhouses (WGN Radio and TV) into conservative outlets, and more than likely eliminate local content (on TV especially).

Read the depressing forecast here. The word bloodbath is used by someone in the know.
