Natalie Bomke is joining WFLD, the Fox owned station in Chicago, as co-anchor of the morning newscast. Bomke replaces Kori Chambers, who recently left WFLD to join WPIX in New York City.
It is a move within Fox for Bomke, who has been the morning anchor at KRIV in Houston for the past three years. Prior to that, she worked at KTXL in Sacramento and WICD in Champaign, Ill. She began her career as a general assignment reporter at WICS in her hometown of Springfield, Ill.
News of Bomke’s hire was first reported by FTVLive.
A station spokesperson said Bomke’s first day will be September 30. She will anchor “Good Day Chicago” from 5 to 7 a.m. alongside Dawn Hasbrouck.
