Woolman worked at the Chicago Fox-owned station briefly in 2010 as ep of Good Day Chicago.

He has over 20 years of experience in the Chicago market. He was assistant news director at CBS-owned WBBM before being named ep of Good Day in 2010. He worked at WFLD for about seven months before joining NBC-owned WMAQ as ep.

He replaces Jill Manuel, who left the station in April.
