WHDH’s Michelle Relerford Set to Join WMAQ

Michelle Relerford, a weekend anchor and reporter at Boston’s WHDH, is leaving the station to join WMAQ in Chicago.

Relerford will start at WMAQ — Chicago’s NBC O&O — on September 6. She joins the station as a general assignment reporter and fill-in anchor. This will not be her first time reporting in the Chicago market — prior to joining WHDH, Relerford was a freelance reporter at WFLD, the Fox O&O. She has also reported at WEWS in Cleveland, WNDU in South Bend and WBOC in Salisbury, MD.

Relerford is the third on-air personality to depart from the Sunbeam-owned WHDH this month. The station is currently auditioning in-house for replacement anchors for Frances Rivera, who is joining WPIX, and Matt Lorch, who is joining KCPQ.
