CHICAGO -- WGN Radio apologized Thursday for a remark Chicago Cubs broadcaster Harry Caray made earlier this week during a taping of the pregame "Jim Riggleman Show."Caray's words came Tuesday in a question posed to Riggleman about Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Hideo Nomo, a rookie from Japan who was scheduled to pitch that night.In a joking tone, Caray asked the Cubs manager, "Well, my eyes are slanty enough, how 'bout yours?"Riggleman, clearly flustered, quickly switched the subject to baseball.

The WWE Superstars show on WGN America made a good first impression Thursday night, but judging by the debut episode, there might not be much in the way of can't-miss angles on the program. (For more, go to baltimoresun.com/ringposts)

No matter how much wrestling was on television when I was younger, there still was no such thing as too much wrestling. Now that I'm older, another wrestling show to keep track of is the last thing I need. That's why I wasn't thrilled to learn WWE is creating a new program.

Perhaps a show consisting of nothing but squash matches, with no advancement of story lines.

Jim Ufkin misses his familiar lunch companions. The corn and soybean farmer from Hooppole, Ill., about 130 miles west of Chicago, spends most of his day driving his tractor or working in his barn. Lunch was not only a time to rest and eat, but also to catch up on business by listening to Orion Samuelson and Max Armstrong on The Noon Show, a half-hour farm news show. For nearly a half century, The Noon Show boomed across the Midwest from Chicago's WGN-AM 720. But this month, in a business decision that says as much about changes in the Midwest and agriculture as it does about broadcasting, WGN all but canceled the show, blaming declining ratings and advertising revenue.
