Signing Off in Chicago

dt.common.streams.StreamServer.cls.jpeg

Today is the day that Bill Kurtis and Walter Jacobson sign off (again) at WBBM in Chicago.

The two Chicago media legends Anchored WBBM back in the station's glory days and were brought back 2 1/2 years ago as sort of a nolvelty act to try and prop up the station's sagging ratings. 

Robert Feder points out that after 2½ years at the station, they may be getting more publicity for leaving than they did all the time they were anchoring the 6pm news there. 

FTVLive wonders if Bill Kurtis, Walter Jacobson and The Pope all leaving on the same day is more than coincidence? Hmmm?
