2008_6_10.suppelsa.jpgSilver fox Mark Suppelsa is going to be back on TV, according to Robert Feder. Within the next few weeks, WGN-9 is expected to make Suppelsa an offer. The 'Pels left WFLD in March and is currently waiting out the period on his contract that would allow WFLD to match any other offer he gets. Feder says the official WGN announcement should come later next week.

Suppelsa will probably take over for Steve Sanders in the 9pm slot with Allison Payne. Sanders's contract is up later this year, but he's expected to stay at WGN in another "high-profile" capacity. [S-T, Trib]
