Tribune Company radio flagship WGN/Chicago will make "authorized content" available via online tuning service TuneIn, the companies announced this morning.
TuneIn has more than 30 million monthly active listeners, across over 150 connected mobile and in-dash devices. Over 50,000 broadcast and Internet radio stations and over a million on-demand programs are available via the service. WGN is a longtime (it's over 85 years old) and nationally-renowned leader in news, talk, and sports programming, and the 2011 IBA Large Market Station of the Year.
Though it's the radio home (and former owner) of Major League Baseball's Chicago Cubs, WGN is not authorized to stream its on-air game coverage, and it's unlikely this will change with the TuneIn partnership (that's what's likely being alluded to by "authorized content").
