Breaking the News in Chicago

While FTVLive told you on Sunday of Nexstar’s plans to but Tribune, many regular TV viewers did not find out the news until Monday morning.

Tribune’s WGN in Chicago had morning Anchor and former FTVLive TV News Person of the Year Robin Baumgarten tell viewers that her station was going to be bought by Nexstar.

Just be warned.
