    Birds of prey are ubiquitous over Illinois rural roads these days. Not so much when I was young, but they are everywhere today.

    My husband and I and a bunch of our friends are very upset that Mike is no longer on the radio WHAT HAPPENED?? bring him back MY HUSBAND JUST DOESN'T LIKE MARIANNE. When my husband is upset it upsets the whole household so please hurry and bring him back

  • Al J

    I like all of the "New (old) Blood", but I wish I could still listen to Mike in the car. It seems like you could cut a little from several shows, and still squeeze Mike in live (or get rid of GM).

    I have been in mourning over WGN since they fired Kathy and Judy and John Williams left. The best thing WGN ever did was get McConnell off. Now I can listen again. Thank you!!!

    Is Mike McConnell no longer with WGN radio. I think he was the one of the best on WGN radio. Please bring him back.


  • Becky

    I have been a McConnell listener for 17 years. I followed him by iPhone app to WGN for the past couple of years since he has been in Chicago. Relegating him to podcast only makes no sense whatsoever. The two weeks where he was off on vacation prior to the podcast starting was just painful listening to those filling in for him. WGN is squandering a huge talent!

  • JudyQ

    Sirott & his wife should be the ones to be streamed (and left at FOX for that matter) and McConnell should be on the radio.

  • Phil Jacobs

    Mike McConnell is the best, most fair person I've ever heard on the radio. I started listening to him in 1990 on WLW. Whoever made the decision to take him off the air should have their head examined. This is a huge waste of a very talented man.

  • Jeff

    I have to agree with the majority of the posts here. I enjoyed Kathy and Judy immensely, when they left I still had John Williams, when he left I came to rely on Mike McConnell for interesting and intelligent talk radio. He is calm and reasonable and very interesting to listen to. Sadly I have no more reason to tune in to WGN radio any more, and I don't. It is inconvenient to listen to Mike streaming but I do, because I really missed him. I fear, however, that WGN is just waiting out his contract by relegating him to this no-man's-land. I'm very sad and disappointed. Please put him back on the air. He's the best you've got.

    I have not been able to access Mike's live stream. Every link I try leads to a dead end. I can only access archived shows, the most recent of which is always the prior day. Hopefully, when WGN finally axes him, he will turn up on another station and we can access that live stream. Regarding Brandmeier, it's curious that the governor declared it Jonathon Brandmeier Day the very same day that WGN cut him loose (or moved him to their non-existent FM station)…

  • Tom

    I have been able to access the live stream of Mike's show either. When I try I get the stream of the normal broadcast which puts me to sleep. WGN's website and now it's lineup is a joke. Who's running things? Again your website and phone app are terrible… kind of bad for a communications company.

    Why don't you save us all some grief… cut Mike loose so he can get back on the radio… Oh I know why… You won't be able to compete. Guess I am regulated to the podcast.

    One more thing … all you Mike listeners … call him… let him know we miss him.

    Hello, I believe your website could be having internet browser compatibility
    issues. Whenever I look at your site in Safari, it looks fine however, if
    opening in IE, it’s got some overlapping issues.
    I simply wanted to provide you with a quick heads up! Other than that, great website!

  • Norm

    What is going on??? No Mike… access to WGN2, it was bad enough Mike was taken off the radio side, now what is going on!

  • Big Mike Fan in Ohio

    Yeah….what gives? Mike has many fans out here who want to hear his show, and who would simply like to know: is he going to be on the "radio" or not? Your website says he's scheduled to be on but that's not working out so well just lately…. Of the dozen or so podcasts I listen to in the course of a week, his is my fav…where is it? Just a bit of info, pls? WGN is a professional outfit, yah?

  • Mike Fan in Joliet

    Mike Is the best. I often do not agree with him but he always gives those he disagrees with their chance to speak. He is the fairest guy on the radio. Bob & Marianne are boring. The morning guy thinks nonstop sarcasm is funny. What that is is a signal that he really has nothing to add.
    For those looking for something better than WGN try former WGN host John Williams on WCCO in Minneapolis. I use the Tune in Radio app. John has the afternoon drive slot 3-7 pm. He is so popular there they just added the 6-7 hour to his 3-6 slot.

  • NWOhio fan

    Give Mike his show back or let him move on.
    There are lots of McConnell fans from all over that followed him to Chicago
    and will wait for his return on WGN or any other radio station.

    Heya i am for the primary time here. I came across this
    board and I find It truly useful & it helped me out a lot.

    such as you helped me.

    What i do not realize is in truth how you are now not really much

    more neatly-appreciated than you might be right now. You’re so intelligent.

    You realize thus significantly relating to this subject, made me individually believe it from numerous varied angles.

    Its like women and men are not involved until it is one thing to accomplish

    with Girl gaga! Your personal stuffs outstanding.

    At all times maintain it up!

  • Chris

    The supposed link to listen to Mike is not working. When you click it, you get the main WGN radio show. I thought Mike was on some sort of online stream only broadcast (WGN-2). But every link just goes to WGN radio or doesn't work. What gives, is Mike actually broadcasting somewhere or not?
