WGN Tops 60M Subs


With significant launches in a trio of Comcast Corp. markets, WGN Superstation said it has eclipsed the 60 million-subscriber plateau.

Executives said WGN recently added 1 million subscribers to surpass that distribution mark, including Comcast launches in Atlanta; Jacksonville, Fla.; and Montgomery County, Md., as part of Tribune Co.’s recent agreement with the MSO.

The new distribution for WGN is being backed by promotional support, including cross-channel on-air and radio spots and print ads, according to the network.
