Whats Happening at WGN TV?

Marcus LeShock just posted an picture to Facebook of a fuzzy image of the WGN logo that says Coming Soon 5.17.17!

He wrote. See what's happening at WGN?

Any one have any ideas? More news maybe?

    There are two images. One with a new logo, and the other is the current logo, but on a monitor on what appears to be new set (in what was the old lottery studio), so it seems like a full makeover is coming on Wednesday.

    The old lottery studio will be awesome! Gonna love those little ping-pong balls behind the WGN Evening News broadcast!

    Does anyone know what's going to happen to the old set and old news studio? It will just be an empty wasteland like the lottery studio was?

    I like the fancy fake red brick wall in the weather center of their new studio their main news studio looks similar to the set ABC7 Chicago uses they should have been more original with their design.

    Watching last night during the weather fun, I think it looks bland personally, not that they should be chic, fancy setups, it just looks bland and cold/sterile.

    Of course, flipping between WGN, Brant on NBC 5, and of course Cheryl on Channel 7, she warms ANYTHING up... She could tell me I'd have 5 minutes left to live and I'd just continue drooling.
