WGN-TV is the CW-affiliated television station in Chicago, Illinois. It broadcasts a high definition digital signal on UHF channel 19 (virtual channel 9.1 via PSIP) from a transmitter atop the Willis Tower. The station maintains studios on Bradley Place in the city's North Center neighborhood. Owned and operated by the Tribune Company since its inception, WGN Television is one of several flagship properties owned by the company, alongside radio station WGN (720 AM); the Chicago Tribune (whose slogan, "World's Greatest Newspaper", was the basis for the call letters used by both stations); and local news and weather channel Chicagoland Television (CLTV), which shares resources from both WGN-TV and the Chicago Tribune.
It is also a pioneering superstation and continues to program WGN America, an alternate feed for United States cable and satellite subscribers, which is not available to Comcast Xfinity, RCN, WOW! and AT&T U-verse subscribers in the Chicago area despite vast differences in program offerings, but is available in the market through satellite providers DirecTV and Dish Network. The station's longtime slogan, "Chicago's Very Own" (which has been used since 1983), was the basis for a popular image campaign of the 1980s and 1990s, as performed by Lou Rawls.
