WGN’s Morning News has a national reputation, well-earned, as being different from most nearly every other local TV stations’ morning news. Some might say it’s more National Lampoon than news. More Saturday Night Live than news. But according to the May ratings, morning news viewers in Chicago like it more than any other morning newscast.
In February, WGN Chicago said it ranked No. 1 or No. 2 in almost every weekday newscast in adults 25-54. And the WGN Morning News just celebrated its eighth year as the top-rated morning news in Chicago. “From hard-hitting investigative pieces to light-hearted morning news banter, our goal is to inform, update and entertain,” said Jennifer Lyons, WGN’s news director.
