Suppelsa Joining WGN As Expected

2008_7_8.iloveyoumarksuppelsa.jpgOur biggest local news crush Mark Suppelsa will be back on the air starting in a few weeks. The plan from June has indeed come to fruition: Suppelsa will anchor the 9pm news on WGN alongside Allison Payne. Come September, station veteran Steve Sanders will move from the 9 o'clock spot to a newly-formed 11:30am–1pm newscast, and Suppelsa and Payne will anchor a new 5:30pm cast. That brings WGN's local news programming to a grand total to 37 hours per week.

Suppelsa will also continue his news duties on Eric and Kathy's WTMX morning earbortion. [Trib, B&C, S-T]
