Where was this from? Did the release really say Pig Virus? heh. I doubt anyone internally is allowed to have that kind of comedic license?
This will be an interesting one. At first I thought it was just a clever case of cross-promoting another company product, which of course it is, but it might be interesting nonetheless. And Leff deserves the gig.
: ChicagoNow.com has partnered with Chicago's WGN Radio 720 (WGN-AM 720) for a radio show that will "feature a rotating cast of bloggers from ChicagoNow.com." Bill Leff, a Chicago radio veteran and former sidekick to Roe Conn, will host the show which will air from 9am-1pm on Saturdays.
: Kevin "Pig Virus" Metheny, WGN Program Director, said "WGN wanted to create a boundary-free radio celebration of Chicago life. ChicagoNow is a collection of fascinating people who can't stop themselves from constantly telling Chicago's story as they see it in a dynamic, refreshing, and sometimes disturbing way. This will be a crazy collision of experiences and perspectives."
: ChicagoNow Editorial Director Tracy Schmidt said "On air, our bloggers will never be at a loss for words. We can't wait to hear what they have to say every Saturday on WGN."
: WGNRadio.com will also featuring weekly podcasts of the show and have links to featured blog posts.
: ChicagoNow Radio will premiere this Saturday, November 14th at 9am on WGN-AM 720 and WGNRadio.com
