In 2000, Novarro left New York for the Fox-owned Chicago station WFLD. Much of his time there was as morning co-anchor until being replaced this summer. (One of the new co-anchors is his former WABC colleague Corey McPherrin.)
Since leaving WFLD, Novarro was close to joining Fox 5/WNYW on their Good Day Wake Up newscast. However, sources say a deal couldn’t be worked out.
A WABC spokesman did not return messages to FishbowlNY.
In his last stint at WABC, Novarro was a weekend morning anchor and weekday general assignment reporter.
Novarro, a graduate of New York University, is a multiple Emmy winner.
