The InFOCUS Podcast: Sean Compton


He serves as President of Networks for Nexstar Media Group, and in addition to his role with NewsNation, the cable TV news channel, he also has a hand in ensuring that the company’s lone radio station — heritage spoken-word WGN Radio at 720 on the AM dial across the Midwest — remains a success.

That it has, based on the latest ratings results from Nielsen Audio. Sean returns to the InFOCUS Podcast to share more about WGN’s resiliency and rebirth in Chicago. He talks about the No. 1 performance of John Williams in middays and Bob Sirott in mornings, and the ongoing growth in afternoons; letting nighttime legend John Landecker be himself; and thanking Rollye James for turning a temporary gig into a long-term late-night program.

  1. Wish we had more people like this in radio today. What a great company and leadership to take care of such a legend in radio.
