Kathy O’Malley and Judy Markey ‘WGN Girlfriends’ May By Back On WGN Radio!!

August 20, 2013


Prayers are being answered today for the long time listeners of WGN radio!

First there was news that Steve Cochran will replace Jonathon Brandmeier as morning personality from 5 to 9 a.m. weekdays. 

Then there was this!

Robert Feder is reporting on Facebook news that is sure to bring smiles galore.

The ‘girlfriends’ are likely coming back to WGN!

Weekends also are getting makeovers with deCastro zeroing in on former WGN midday stars Kathy O’Malley and Judy Markey for a late Saturday morning show and former “Sunday Papers” host Rick Kogan for a late Sunday night show. Tribune political writer Rick Pearson is slated to host a Sunday morning show, leading into later hours for Dean Richards.

Jimmy DeCastro took over as president and general manager of WGN following a most troubling and embarrassing time for the legendary powerhouse of a station,  When  Kathy O’Malley and Judy Markey departed the airwaves one could almost hear the collective gasp from the audience.  There was no sense for the destruction that was taking place at WGN.

The decisions that are now being made underscores the fact listeners are being heard when they complain, and  sanity is returning to AM 720.  I also predict ad revenues will be following!

    so happy to here that Cathy and Judy will be back. That started the down fall of Wgn. I can’t wait to here them again. I am also happy you hired Bill L. from the all night show. He is such a cheerful person I will miss him at night but very glad that Nick D. will take over. I will have to start listening to Bill in the morning if he is ever let go I will only listen to Nick D.
