Greg Jarrett, who had been at KGO-AM for 16 years until he was laid off in January, has landed at one of the nation’s most powerful news-talk stations, WGN Chicago, where he will be doing the morning drive shift solo.
“I have always wanted to work in Chicago,” Jarrett said in the station’s announcement. “When I first started in radio at age 17, we would sit around late at night and listen to WGN. It was the ideal, the place to work. WGN Radio connects Chicagoans to each other and the rest of the world. It is an honor to now be part of that process.”
Like KGO, WGN has been doing news-talk for years and is one of that market’s leading stations. WGN is owned by Tribune Co, which owns the Chicago Tribune, and here is that paper’s story about Jarrett’s arrival. (Photo credit: WGN)
