“Local news is becoming more important on the weekends,” president and GM of WBBM, Marty Wilke, said in a statement. “By adding three additional hours of news, we will have more time to tell our viewers what’s happening in and around Chicago.”
Jim Williams and Mai Martinez will anchor the expanded 10:00 p.m. show while Marissa Bailey and weather anchor Ed Curran will anchor the morning shows.
