News features (This particular one no longer exists, but a prime example would be features like the Osgood Files)
Noon Business Hour is an example of in depth coverage for those who are involved with the stock exchange, among other things.
Traffic: On most stations, traffic is often just a quick report. On others (See WKSC) it's a 2 commercials disguised as a traffic report. WBBM has more in depth traffic information.
The only thing I believe WBBM stinks at is weather. Accuweather is terrible at forecasting the weather. The reports are lacking and often useless. I wish they would find another service or team up with a TV station in Chicago for their weather updates.
But there is a lot more to the news cycle than what quick updates on a cell phone or a flash briefing on Amazon Alexa can offer. WBBM revolves around this news cycle.
