Random WBBM Thread

The first pairing of Antonio and Tracy was just for like a couple weeks between the date he started and the date Tracy went on maternity leave, right? I can't imagine it being more than 2 or 3 weeks.

Actually, I think they were their own formal arrangements. This article says references Linda filling in that spring of 2002...

Now, I don't know if Tracy returned and but didn't get the 10 back, but Linda was the late anchor in September, when other changes were made. Maybe they liked the Antonio-Linda duo, and a temporary deal was made permanent, but then I'd still call his first time with Tracy as a permanent team, as the original intention was probably for her to come back to it.

Okay, time for some fun on a Friday! Who here can list EVERY 10 o'clock anchor team on WBBM since Lester & Lester were demoted at the start of the century?

 

Grab your pencils, get set, and GO! No cheating at the answers below. (I admittedly forgot 2 of these tenures.)

List threads aren't allowed. A list within a normal discussion is fine.

This. @24994J is illustrating a point here that the 10pm anchor lineups are a revolving door (chair?) of talent.

 

But a thread like "10PM Anchors in Your Market" is a no-go.

 

Also, I should add, hijacking a normal thread to insert irrelevant lists is also not good. We don't need a list of other station's 10pm anchor history.
