WGN Morning News celebrates 25th anniversary with live primetime special

WGN Radio introduced a new lineup this week, and one of the changes is an extra hour of the simulcast of the WGN Early Morning News. Bob Sirott, whose show now starts an hour later at 6:00am, had a few pointers for the news anchors you hear on the simulcast: Lauren Jiggetts and Dan Ponce. Lauren and Dan joined Bob to talk about working at WGN-TV, what kind of critiquing they receive from their parents, and of course how they find time to sleep when working the early shift.
