Anna Davlantes, who left Fox-owned WFLD in Chicago last October, is joining the radio news team at Chicago’s WGN AM. As the Chicago Tribune reports, the station is beefing up its staff to compete with rival news station WBBM:
Davlantes talked about the new role with Chicago media reporter Robert Feder:
“They understand that I have contacts and sources in the community, and I’m going to use those to try to uncover the stories that people aren’t covering,” Davlantes says. “They’re playing to my strengths.”
After leaving Fox-owned WFLD-Channel 32 in October 2013, Davlantes fielded offers for television jobs, but all were out of town. “I made the decision to stay in Chicago,” she says.
