  • WGWG-LP is a low-power radio station on VHF television channel 6. Owned by Venture Technologies Group, LLC, and operated through a local marketing agreement by Tribune Broadcasting as a sister station to WGN, it broadcasts a sports talk radio format branded as The Game. The station was previously run by Merlin Media, LLC as WKQX-LP until January 2014, when a new agreement was reached with Cumulus Media to run an alternative rock format in a simulcast with sister station WKQX until February 17, 2014. Cumulus ended its LMA with WKQX-LP on the same day, with Tribune Broadcasting entering into a concurrent LMA of their own, and flipped it to a sports talk format. WGWG-LP is technically and legally a television station, but since the channel 6 analog TV frequency can be heard on 87.75 MHz on the FM band, the facility essentially operates as a radio station and has aired radio-oriented formats, mainly music. Though it is licensed to Rochelle, Illinois, WGWG-LP's signal does not reach that city; the station transmits instead from downtown Chicago's John Hancock Center. The station was also simulcasted on a digital subchannel of WCHU-LD until it was replaced with CCTV News. Wikipedia
