Tanja Babich Joins Chicago ABC Station

babich_croppedNow we know where Tanja Babich is heading after sweeps is over.

Chicago’s ABC owned station WLS has announced Babich will join the station as a reporter and substitute anchor.

The morning anchor for WSYR recently announced she was leaving the Syracuse, NY, ABC station at the end of November.

Babich told WSYR viewers about the move on her facebook page Tuesday, “After more than six years at NewsChannel 9, I will be leaving at the end of the month to pursue an exciting opportunity in a great new city. I will miss Central New York, our viewers, my co-workers and, especially, my family and friends.”

WSYR Morning Team Soon Losing Two

Tanja Babich is scheduled to anchor alongside Dan Cummings until the end of November sweeps while meteorologist Chris Brandolino will stay at the Syracuse, NY, ABC affiliate until December 31.

Brandolino is moving to New Zealand to work for the National Institute of Water and Atmospheric Research. There’s no word where Babich is heading.

Babich started at WSYR in 2007. She was named morning anchor in 2011. This will be the second trip South for Brandolino. Before coming to WSYR three years ago, he worked for the Australia Bureau of Meteorology. He had previously worked at Syracuse NBC affiliate WSTM.

As Part of a Major Image Overhaul, WSYR Introduces New Anchor Teams

Syracuse’s WSYR introduced a new on-air talent lineup on Monday morning as part of a major image overhaul that includes a revamped logo and a brand-new, HD-optimized studio.

Earlier this month, WSYR announced that it would begin broadcasting its newscasts in HD and on Monday it became the first station in central New York to do so.

Tanja Babich, who has been with WSYR since 2007, began her new role as weekday morning anchor alongside Dan Cummings (above, right). Most recently, Babich was co-hosting the station’s daytime lifestyle show “Bridge Street.”

Christie Casciano moved from mornings to nights, where she joins Ron Wood for WSYR’s 11 p.m. newscast. She has also taken over anchoring duties for the station’s 10 p.m. newscast, which is broadcast on WSYR’s digital sub-channel.

“The changes solidify the anchor teams from sun up to sundown,” said Theresa Underwood, WSYR’s vice president and general manager. Read more
