Prior to joining WGN, Easterly served as president and general manager of Fox’s WJW-TV in Cleveland.

“Greg is a proven leader, both at the head of a station and in the newsroom, and he has a keen understanding of the management and operations of a legacy station with market dominance,” said Larry Wert, president of broadcast media. “WGN programs a powerful schedule of news, sports and entertainment for itself and CLTV, with more news than any other Chicago station—I’m confident WGN will continue its growth and success under Greg’s expert guidanc.”
