Feb Book In Chicago is a Tight one (for 2nd)

WMAQ the NBC O&O and WBBM the CBS O&O in Chicago are locked in a very close at 10PM.


How close is it? They're tied!

The ratings show that the late newscasts of both stations were watched in 203,000 households in the Chicago market .

There's just one problem.....

The race they are in for for second place. Both stations are behind by a substantial margin the perennially top-ranked ABC O&O WLS.

So far in the February book, 311,000 Chicago-area households were tuning into WLS late newscast.

Larry Wert the GM of WMAQ might have picked a good time to leave.

Just saying....
