It's the continued re-branding of WGN America...

Premiere Radio Networks’ "The Bob & Tom Show" becomes the latest radio show to extend its brand to TV. Beginning Nov. 3, Tribune’s WGN America cable channel will air a daily, one-hour, late night best-of version of that day’s syndicated radio morning show. It’s the first original programming created by the recently rebranded cable channel, which reaches 72 million homes and enjoys a massive footprint in the Midwest,where Indianapolis-based Bob & Tom’s enjoy their greatest ratings success. This is from the trade publication "Radio & Records."
