Jan Jeffcoat is leaving Chicago’s WFLD after five years at the Fox O&O, she announced last week.
Jeffcoat, the station’s noon anchor, has accepted what she described as her “dream job.” She has been named co-host of “The List,” a nightly newsmagazine produced by Scripps. Her last day at WFLD was Friday.
According to the Chicago Tribune, Patrick Elwood, Jeffcoat’s co-anchor on the noon newscast, will anchor solo until a replacement is named. WFLD is examining both internal and external candidates, the Tribune reports.
