Midday talk hosts Kathy O’Malley and Judy Markey exit Tribune talk WGN/Chicago after 20 years. The station plans to announce plans for a replacement program in the next few weeks.
VP/GM Tom Langmyer points to PPM as fueling the change, "The media business and the Chicago radio market have changed dramatically in the last few years, including a new method of ratings measurement. WGN needs to respond to these changes, and this is the time to move in a new direction."
The show was unique at it's time of launch both for pairing two female hosts and for pairing a Chicago Sun-Times columnist with one from the Chicago Tribune.
