ChicagoLand TV bows Fri.

It may look and sound like CNN, but the news show hitting the airwaves Friday in the Windy City and its suburbs is ChicagoLand Television News, the first foray into 24-hour coverage of local news on Illinois TV.

The cable station, a Tribune Co. subsid, will be seen in 650,000 households in the six Illinois and two Indiana counties surrounding Chi.

ChicagoLand follows all-news cable stations in Long Island, Orange County, Boston and the D.C. area. Time Warner Inc. recently began 24-hour coverage of the five New York City boroughs.
