WBBM Ratings Plunge From AT&T Blackout

As expected, the ongoing impasse between CBS and AT&T is wreaking havoc on WBBM’s already low ratings. The blackout of CBS 2 on DirecTV, DirecTV Now and U-verse cable systems appears to have cost the CBS-owned station more than a quarter of its viewership.

The move signals more changes under Jeff Harris, who’s been vice president and news director of CBS 2 since July.
