“We are delighted that Zoraida will be returning to our newsroom,” WMAQ station manager Frank Whittaker said in a statement. “She’s a native Chicagoan and knows our city well. I know our viewers will welcome her back.”
“Daniella has been a key part of our morning news growth, and while we hate to see her go, we are happy that she can take advantage of this promotion within our company,” WMAQ general manager David Doebler said.
Sambolin, who battled breast cancer while at CNN, left the network in December to be closer to her family in Chicago.
