    WGN are hiring good people. That is until Sinclair takes over.

    Lauren's move to 'GN was like the worst-kept secret in Chicago...at least in my own head.

    Lauren got a raw deal from WMAQ. She was seen as one of their 'future stars,' but when it became clear that she wasn't going to get a weekday spot anytime soon (if ever), she moved on. It seems like no one wants to work weekends at WMAQ nor do they want to 'wait their turn.' Patience is not a virtue for them.

    Tom Negovan and Lourdes Duarte are in for Mark and Micah tonight. Is Tom the primary fill-in for Mark now, or is it usually Ben? Or is it a mix of both?

    Not sure, but Lourdes also anchored with Steve at midday, so I'd be surprised if she'd do the whole evening slate.

    Maybe we'll have Julie Unruh? WGN isn't exactly known for doing solo weekday newscasts.

    The only time I see them do a solo broadcast, is if when they air the late news after a primetime sporting event, and that's only if it runs late.

    It is Tom Negovan and Julie tonight; however, with a severe weather outbreak in progress, Tom Skilling and Mike Hamernik were anchoring coverage with very sporadic segments featuring the anchors. The actual news/top stories kicked off at 9:13pm.
