Look for WGN 720-AM to add more syndicated programming in the coming year. Starting Tuesday the Nexstar Media Group news/talk station will air “The Jim Bohannon Show,” syndicated by Westwood One Network, from 1 to 4 a.m. weeknights. Most recently airing in the time period has been a rerun of John Williams’s midday show. Bohannon, a Radio Hall of Famer who worked at Chicago’s former WCFL in the 1980s, replaced Larry King in the Westwood One/Mutual overnight slot in 1993. Although the Washington-based talk show marks another setback to WGN’s tradition of local programming around the clock, station bosses say their newscasts will continue to originate live from their newsroom.
