WGN Shuffles Morning & Evening Programs
Tribune Media News/Talk 720 WGN Chicago is revamping its morning show and evening lineup.
As first reported by Robert Feder, Justin Kaufmann will move from hosting “The Download” from 7-11pm to joining the The Steve Cochran Show as a contributor. The Download will continue as a podcast on WGN Plus and Kaufmann will serve as fill-in host for Cochran.
Andrea Darlas, who had been part of Cochran’s morning show, will join The Patti Vasquez Show as newscaster and co-host. Vasquez’s show will move from 11pm-2am to 7-11pm on nights when WGN does not have Chicago White Sox or Blackhawks games and 10pm-1am when they do. On nights with no sports play-by play “WGN Nightside” made up of clips from other WGN shows and podcasts will fill the 11pm-1am slot. Nick Diglio’s overnight show will add the 1am hour and run 1-5am.
