A rotating cast of WGN substitutes will fill in for Mark Suppelsa this month, Time Out Chicago’s Robert Feder reports.

Suppelsa, who anchors the 5 and 9 p.m. weeekday newscasts on the Chicago CW-affiliate, announced on Friday that he would take a month away from the anchor desk to seek treatment for an alcohol addiction. He expects to be back in June.

Micah Materre and Lourdes Duarte are handling Suppela’s responsibilities this week and next. Tom Negovan and Dan Ponce will anchor through the end of May, WGN news director Greg Caputo told Feder.
