Is Garry Meier on his way back -- to WGN-AM?

| No Comments

X00048_7.JPGIs Garry Meier contemplating some sort of radio comeback? He did a brief stint on John Howell's morning show at WIND-AM (560) today, and now sources say he's landed a three-day gig next week at Tribune Broadcasting's news/talk WGN-AM (720) during the 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. time slot recently vacated by John Williams, who moved into the morning drive slot at the station. WGN General Manager Tom Langmyer told us Meier is officially "filling in," and he wouldn't comment further. Meier famously worked on radio with Steve Dahl for many years and then with Roe Conn at WLS-AM (890). Meier is a known entity in the Chicago market, which could appeal to WGN. The Tribune Broadcasting station is looking for Williams' permanent replacement in the mid-afternoon slot.
