WBBM-TV delays move

CBS-owned WBBM-TV has delayed its move to its new Washington St. headquarters in the Loop at Block 37 until further notice because of technical problems at the facility.

Station officials hoped they could move their operations from their long-time home at McClurg Court this summer, but because of those technical and operational issues, station officials decided to postpone their move downtown no earlier than September.

The move of WBBM’s newscasts to high definition have also been delayed.

WBBM and CBS aren’t the only entities have problems at Block 37: The CTA has suspended work on a new “super station” at the Block 37 site indefinitely because of cost overruns.
