A decision to add radio shock jock Eric “Mancow” Muller as Chicago Tonight commentator riled up WTTW viewers, but Carol Marin told the Chicago Tribune she won’t walk over the hiring. Comments posted on the Tribune‘s media blog suggest that many viewers were sufficiently disgusted to threaten to stop watching the show or contributing to the station. “Mancow is just a colicky pre-adolescent who seems to have an effect on other stunted adults who’ve never grown up,” commented one viewer. “I teach seventh graders all day and the last thing I want to do is sit down and watch another one on WTTW.”
