CLTV in Chicago shutting down December 31, 2019

It will be an end of an era in Chicago television thanks to Nexstar Broadcasting.

Word is the staff at CLTV the cable arm of WGN and one time Tribune broadcasting is going to be shut down after almost 3 decades of delivering the news to Chicagoland.

   I'm sure this was announced for weeks and we just missed the blurb. However it came as a shot to see that CLTV had "signed Off" on New Year's Day. We'd come to think of the station as a natural alternative to the big nationals. 

    We are very sorry to loose, what we'd grown to think of as, an "Oid Friend".
