FM News 101.1 Chicago Launches All News Format
The move today beats CBS Radio's 780 AM WBBM scheduled simulcast on 105.9 FM. The simulcast was announced several weeks ago with a Monday, August 1st start date.
The Chicago Radio and Media website reports technical glitches with anchors sturggling to get comfortable with the new processes, initial reviews have been mixed at best. Station management decided to go with a "soft launch" and get the new format on the air, even though all of the operational pieces of the puzzle were not quite in place yet.
