    It is about time Kathy and Judy return. Can't wait to hear them again.
    WGN hopefully has learned from this mistake, Keep what works.

    Hooray they are bringing Cochran back, I am thrilled! Stopped listening to mornings when JB came in. Drove me nuts! He acted like an 17 year old high school kid. Good job WGN.

    This will make me reset my dial to WGN in the morning. I couldn't
    stand JB that early in the morning. It is a loss to WBBM, the station
    I had changed to.

    Finally someone at WGN realizes how many of us left the station – Brandmeier was awful – glad Steve Cochran is back, also Kathy and Judy- Too bad it took GN so long to figure out that they lost a lot of very good people.

    Glad WGN is coming to it's senses! Now if we can get some occasional intellectual information like Milt Rosenberg instead of 3 hours of repetitious sports from 9 PM to midnight I'd be back to WGN all day and night.
