As a result of the new 9am newscast being anchored by the regular morning team, Ed Curran and Robb Ellis are the new 11am team.

 

 

 

So now that Ed Curran is back at 11am, are they potentially looking for another hire?

Yeah, I'm totally taking this as Bannon giving up the 11, and having the weekenders split the week. Hell, why not recast the whole 11am as a newsroom-anchored vehicle for Brad Edwards, of Streaming with Brad fame?

Yeah, after reading it again, I’m reading it that way, as well. Maybe Ellis Monday-Wednesday and Curran Thursday-Friday. I agree, hopefully Edwards is named the anchor.

Who does maria saavedra Anchor the 4pm with? Maybe her and Brad can helm 11am and 4pm?

First Linda MacLennan, back in the fall, and now some of these familiar faces. We're officially living in a timeline where WBBM has a decent relationship with some former on-air talent, and I never thought I'd see the day.

Walked past the channel 2 studio today. They had black curtains down around all of the windows. I remember reading how they were going to begin reusing the street-level studio after the jumbotron was repaired. Does anyone know if they started building out the studio?

They had not started work the last time (about 2 weeks ago) I walked by the studio. I do know that it was been completely cleaned out so it's ready for work to begin. The studio is big enough for more than just a weather center, so I'm hoping they really take advantage of the space.

Agree! Really hope they build out a nice new set to use up all that great space and keep it functional for some versatility in shots.
