    Like this? Then catch "The L."

    Friday was a rough day for Chicago radio listeners all over the dial, when WNUA-FM switched from jazz to Spanish hot adult contemporary and longtime hosts Kathy and Judy signed off from WGN.

    But at least one group of listeners could find near-immediate comfort.

    Clear Channel's WNUA-FM may have signed off on the smooth jazz format, but another station trying to fill the void within two hours.

    Just two months after launching with an alternative country format, WLFM-LP (87.7 FM), which wants to be known as "The L,"  began airing the format that WNUA abandoned, Phil Rosenthal writes in the Chicago Tribune's Tower Ticker column.

    Unfortunately, there's no such comfort yet for fans of Kathy and Judy.
