WBBM Chicago To Restore Jumbotron, Street-Front Studio

It’s been years since CBS-owned WBBM dismantled the giant video screen outside its Loop studios overlooking Daley Plaza. But soon it will be back — bigger and better than ever. “If all goes according to plan, we look for the sign to be fully operational by mid to late August,” said GM Jennifer Lyons. “Our 24/7 local news stream, CBS News Chicago, will be the content on the monitor.”
