Reporter David Novarro Returning to WABC

Veteran reporter David Novarro is heading back home to WABC. The Chicago Tribune says Novarro is making a return engagement at Channel 7 where he spent 19 years.  

In 2000, Novarro left New York for the Fox-owned Chicago station WFLD. Much of his time there was as morning co-anchor until being replaced this summer. (One of the new co-anchors is his former WABC colleague Corey McPherrin.)

Since leaving WFLD, Novarro was close to joining Fox 5/WNYW on their Good Day Wake Up newscast. However, sources say a deal couldn’t be worked out.

A WABC spokesman did not return messages to FishbowlNY.

In his last stint at WABC, Novarro was a weekend morning anchor and weekday general assignment reporter.

Novarro, a graduate of New York University, is a multiple Emmy winner.
