Famed WGN Radio Studio Headed To Museum Of Broadcast Communications

As it should be.  This is perfect news!

I hope everyone recalls Wally Phillips and “Uncle Bobby” when they see this display.

The studio that once served as the broadcast command post for Wally Phillips, Bob Collins, Spike O’Dell and other Chicago radio legends soon will be on public display. Tribune Co.-owned news/talk WGN-AM (720) is donating its former main studio equipment and furniture to the Museum of Broadcast Communications. “It’s been dismantled and we’re just waiting for them to take it,” Tom Langmyer, vice president and general manager of WGN, told me. The station recently relocated from the first floor to new state-of-the-art facilities on the seventh floor of Tribune Tower. Said Bruce DuMont, founder and president of the museum: “We would be delighted to add the WGN historic studio as part of our museum experience.”
