At the epicenter of the studio space is the WGN Radio journalism hub, home base for the station’s 24/7 news room. The new headquarters includes an expanded video production suite with green screen for WGN Radio’s in-house content agency DATS.
The layout invites all employees to work in the content space and features state-of-the-art lighting for video production, broadcast, and streaming. WGN Radio’s chief engineer Bill Murdoch has spearheaded the entire project.
“An investment like this represents the strength of our brand beyond traditional broadcast. It recognizes our success on every platform. What an exciting time for this 94-year-old start-up,” said WGN Radio Station Manager & Vice President of Content Todd Manley.
