Tell WGN Radio How You Feel About “Kathy And Judy” Being Fired

May 22, 2009

Let WGN Radio hear it!  Do not be shy.  The email address is below.  Tell WGN management how you feel about the needless end to the “Kathy and Judy” radio show.  Too often radio management think they operate above the listeners.  Truth is they do not.  Without us listeners, radio management would be unpacking boxes at Jewel-Osco.

In case you have not heard the news about ‘the girlfriends” read it here.

Also hear the final radio show of “Kathy and Judy” here.

Hear the final song from Friday’s broadcast here.

    Wow, what a dumb ass move the management at WGN-AM. I actually enjoyed the Kathy and Judy Show. If you wanted to fire someone, fire Steve Cochran. He is the most dreadful, unfunny host you have had in years. I miss listening to Spike, and John Williams was great in the afternoons. Go back to how things were 2 years ago and you’ll have a winner once again.

    WGN-AM management, you suck! WTF are you thinking?

    I truly enjoyed your programs,and have for over 20+ years, as they were a way to get away from life’s problems for a few hours– for instance, Steve Dale and his pet show on the weekend provided fun and interesting news that also took me away from the weekly happenings of life. And, Kathy and Judy always did the same–topics that were relevent, but a different slant and always entertaining–a pleasure to listen to, and a nice escape from everyday life, yet pertinent to everyone’s life. Now, you have people screaming in my ears, and people I can’t even understand ( I asked my husband if the French guy on the weekends was a comedian and joking around, or was he the real thing)–sadly I listened just long enough to realize this wasn’t a joke on WGN’s part. You really hired someone like this???- I can’t even understand his accent–No one else could take that time slot?–What about someone else who interviewed for WGN that you could understand!?
    As with the others, I will no longer listen to this radio station– which is too bad, as all the others were all the same; WGN was different–but apparently that doesn’t make dollars for Mr. Zell!! Thanks Kathy and Judy, and all the others at the radio station, who are gone now( within the last six months) who made me smile for so many years! I will remember WGN fondly, as a sweet memory.

    First Spike left, then the weekend personalities were let go and now Kathy and Judy are gone and management is instructing the remaining staff to be more edgy and angry. I will NEVER listen WGN again.
    I have been a loyal listener for 20 years.
    WGN management has made several gross errors in judgement and the station will be gone in 6 months.
    The reason I listened to WGN is because it was one of the last remaining stations that had integrity, class and good taste.
    I detest edgy, angry personalities.
    WGN management must be a group of absolute morons.
    WGN-you lose.

    I think WGN Radio management has gone completely insane. First, they hire Garry Meier — who is one of the most negative, obnoxious, and ignorant radio personalities in Chicago — for the afternoon slot. Then they go and get rid of Kathy & Judy?!??!?!? To me, WGN has been a positive light in an overwhelmingly negative media sea. Whether you like them all or not, or always agree with them or not, all the other WGN hosts (John Williams, Steve Cochran, Dean Richards, Nick Digilio, and of course Kathy & Judy…) are all bright, positive, inquisitive folks. I just can’t imagine what WGN is thinking! I may seek out Steve Cochran now and then, but beyond that I am THROUGH with WGN Radio!

    What a mistake you have made in taking the “Kathy & Judy Show” off the air. I am DONE listening to WGN. And, I won’t be patronizing your products. Obviously, you don’t understand their appeal. I am VERY sad and disappointed with the continuing bad decisions made by the TRIBUNE/WGN.

    I am vey upset to hear you are cancelling Kathy and Judy show. I am in sales and in and out of my car all day. I always listen to Kathy and Judy. They are so much fun to listen to. I will not listen to your station anymore and will not patronize you sponsers. Why are you cancelling their show? Very upsetting. I hope another station picks them up!

    I already stopped listening to WGN in the 1 – 4 slot…..that guy does not come close to fitting the wgn model. And now you have lost me in the 9 – 12 spot. You have a right to fire them….but get someone to tell you the “cat’s on the roof” story sometime and you will understand how that move should have been made.

    From now on you have me as a listener from 8:00 to 9:00 a.m. with good ol John

    I have been a listener of WGN since the Wally Phillips days. I’m sorry to say that I will NO LONGER LISTEN TO YOUR STATION DUE TO THE FIRING OF KATHY AND JUDY. WHAT WERE YOU THINKING? It was bad enough when you put John Williams (he’s aweful) in the 9:00 a.m. slot, but getting rid of the best thing (other than the cubs) that you had to offer is out and out disgraceful!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! This is a sad day for all of radio!

    I can’t tell you how upset my entire extended family is at your cancellation of “The Kathy and Judy” show. I can only suspect that you’re thinking with a “bottom line” mentality and not taking into account the personal feelings of your listeners. Radio is the most intimate of media and Kathy and Judy were more than a “commodity,” they were an integral part of my day.

    I will no longer listen to WGN Radio and, when possible, I will no long patronize your sponsors.
