John Williams Returns; Garry Meier Out As WGN Revamps Lineup
Tribune News/Talk 720 WGN Chicago is shuffling its lineup.
The return of Williams will see Garry Meier shifted from afternoons at WGN to their sister webcaster WGN.FM for the remainder of his contract. He will be replaced in afternoons by late morning hosts Bill Leff and Wendy Snyder. Morning host Steve Cochran will add the 9am hour to his morning show.
Also joining WGN’s lineup fulltime is comedian Patti Vasquez. Vasquez had been filling in on the 11pm-2am slot since Pete MacMurray moved to 7-11pm earlier this year and will now take it over permanently.
