Chicago Media

The Chicago metropolitan area is the third-largest media market in North America (after New York City and Los Angeles). Each of the big four (CBS, ABC, NBC and FOX) United States television networks directly owns and operates a station in Chicago (WBBM, WLS, WMAQ and WFLD, respectively). WGN-TV, which is owned by the Tribune Company, is carried (with some programming differences) as "WGN America" on cable nationwide and in parts of the Caribbean.

Television programs filmed in Chicago for a national audience include The Oprah Winfrey Show and the movie review program Ebert and Roeper. Nearly 60 AM and 11 FM radio stations broadcast a complete selection of formats, including all major types of music, news, talk shows, public interest features and market reports.

There are two major daily newspapers published in Chicago: the Chicago Tribune and the Chicago Sun-Times, with the former having the larger circulation. There are also several regional and special-interest newspapers such as the Chicago Reader, the Daily Southtown, the Chicago Defender, the Chicago Sports Weekly, the Daily Herald, StreetWise, The Chicago Free Press and the Windy City Times.

Chicago is a national leader in publishing and printing; more than 600 newspapers and periodicals originate in the city, including American Libraries, Ebony, Jet, Poetry and Your Money. Specialised trade magazines cover a comprehensive range of subjects such as healthcare, international trade, consumer issues, industry and trade, agriculture, politics, business and professional information. The University of Chicago is the source of several scholarly journals; among the areas covered are philology, literature, the sciences, ethics, business, labour, history, library science, medicine and law.
