A New Anchor Team on WFLD’s Noon Newscast?

Time Out Chicago’s Robert Feder has details on some upcoming changes at WFLD, the Fox O&O in Chicago, following Jan Jeffcoat‘s departure last month.

Anna Davlantes and Kori Chambers are expected to co-anchor a revamped noon newscast, which will kick off sometime next month. Davlantes currently anchors from 7 to 10 a.m., while Chambers currently anchors from 4:30 to 7 a.m. Feder reports that the pair are also “in line” to anchor a 5 p.m. weekday newscast that’s being considered for launch next year.

Patrick Elwood, who has anchored the noon newscast solo since Jeffcoat’s departure, is expected to return to full-time reporting duties.

Anchor Jan Jeffcoat Leaving Chicago’s WFLD

Jan Jeffcoat is leaving Chicago’s WFLD after five years at the Fox O&O, she announced last week.

Jeffcoat, the station’s noon anchor, has accepted what she described as her “dream job.” She has been named co-host of “The List,” a nightly newsmagazine produced by Scripps. Her last day at WFLD was Friday.

According to the Chicago Tribune, Patrick Elwood, Jeffcoat’s co-anchor on the noon newscast, will anchor solo until a replacement is named. WFLD is examining both internal and external candidates, the Tribune reports.
