WGN Promotes Reporter to Weekend Morning Anchor

By Kevin Eck 

WGN reporter Gaynor Hall has been promoted to weekend morning anchor.

Beginning Saturday, Sept. 18, the Chicago native will co-anchor the Saturday and Sunday morning news alongside Sean Lewis and meteorologist Tim Joyce. Hall replaces Tonya Francisco, who now hosts Daytime Chicago.

WGN news director Dominick Stasi said Hall was promoted because she is tenacious, driven and knowledgeable.


“As one of Chicago’s Very Own, she will be a huge asset to our WGN Weekend Morning News, bringing her unique perspective to the stories of the day,” said Stasi.

Hall joined WGN as a freelance reporter in April 2008. She started her career at WMGT in Macon, Ga. before coming back to Chicago to anchor for WGN’s sister station CLTV in April 2006.
