It's weird when you personally know everyone involved in a story like this. There is some good news and some not-so-good news. Start with the good news. John Landecker is coming back and will get the 7-10pm shift on a regular basis. That's excellent. JRL belongs on the radio. He's a HOFer, for cryin out loud. Steve Bertrand is also getting a new show and it's going to be a magazine-style news program in the afternoon. That could be really interesting.
Unfortunately, Roe Conn was let go. His last show was yesterday. Nick DiGilio was let go too. He had been at WGN for 35 years.
