RESYNCAPALOOZA: NewsNation with WGN-TV’s Chicago’s Very Own

A couple Saturdays ago, I posed a Resync of NewsNation based on various airchecks I had captured from inception to early 2021. The theme package is Stephen Arnold Music, composed exclusively for the network. But it really has a sedating sonic branding. Since News Nation is the former WGN America, the same WGNA that ran WGN-TV’s local news for many years up till aprox 2015, I redid everything with 615 Music’s Chicago’s Very Own – the same sounds that has been heard on their air since mid 2007. The theme has aged well…

BTW: In case you missed the point: Chicago’s Lollapalooza music festival and resync – get it ?





(Using Non Stop Music’s WGN News theme 1997-2007 as a primary theme, they still use these cuts for breaking news stingers)

WEEKEND ELEMENTS (Cold Open, bottom of the hour open, etc.)


ALTERNATIVE CLOSE (Due to ex Pres. Trump Catching the Rona)
