WFLD isn’t done re-making its morning show “Good Day Chicago.”
The Chicago FOX owned station has added MJ Witt as executive producer for the show.
Witt, who started her career in Chicago, has worked at WMAQ, WTTW and WLS. She has also been a producer on “Extra,” “Inside Edition,” and ABC’s “20/20.” She replaces Dominic Stasi who left for WGN last month.
In the last week, “Good Day Chicago” has added Jon Kelley from KNTV in the San Francisco Bay Area, Melody Mendez from KDVR in Denver and feature reporter Jake Hamilton from KRIV in Houston. The station added Natalie Bomke also from KRIV as “Good Day” co-anchor in September.
Hamilton is staying in the FOX family. He comes from the Houston FOX owned station KRIV where he was an entertainment reporter.
Though TVSpy hears he won’t be doing the same sort of work he did in Houston, he seems to have pushed some buttons in Chicago already. After taking a look at Hamilton’s goodbye on KRIV, Chicago media writer Robert Feder asked, “Is it too late to send him back to Houston?”
