Charlie Meyerson named WGN-AM news director

| No Comments

Looks as if news/talk WGN-AM (720) is taking a Web-centric approach in naming its new news director Charlie Meyerson, who comes to the radio station from its sibling newspaper operation, the Chicago Tribune. At the Trib, Meyerson most recently was a senior producer for the paper's Web site. He also has been a frequent contributor to WGN radio news programming. "This has been a quest for a rare individual who can lead our accomplished news professionals forward in gathering and delivering news through traditional, emerging and as-yet-undeveloped technologies," said WGN Program Director Kevin Metheny. Unlike many who are in the news business and Web-focused, Meyerson has been around in the business a few years. Some 30 years ago, Meyerson joined the news team at WXRT-FM (93.1), before leaving there in 1989 to serve as WNUA-FM's (95.5) news and public affairs director.
