Radio station apologizes for lifting ChicagoNow’s Thanksgiving Parade drinking game

“Do you routinely steal content?” ChicagoNow community manager Jimmy Greenfield asked Nashville’s 107.5 after seeing the “Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade drinking game” posted on the Clear Channel radio station’s site. The piece, written by T.R. Slyder, first appeared on ChicagoNow, a Chicago Tribune website.

107.5 morning host Jim Chandler apologized in the comments section:

This was my fault. We have a service that provides material for our show preparation. I confused their original content with T.R, Slyder’s content. If I had read further into the article in the wee hours of the morning, I would have seen the source. It’s good stuff, and we’ll directly link to his content in the future when he blogs more about things our audience would enjoy. My apologies.
