About WGN-Chicago

The Tribune Company has owned WGN since 1924. It’s been a history of firsts; WGN was the first radio station to broadcast a courtroom case (the Scopes Trial) and the first to broadcast an Indy 500 auto race (Memorial Day 500). WGN was once voted the most respected and admired radio station in the county by the radio industry. WGN has received numerous awards over the years, including Station of the Year at the 2008 IBA Silver Dome Awards. Today, it continues to be one of the top-grossing stations in the United States.
