Caputo, who has headed up the Tribune Co. station’s news operation since 2002, told staffers Monday he is stepping down at the end of June. … “Being a part of WGN was a goal for me for years,” Caputo said. “Being here for the last 11 years has been even better than I thought it would be.”
No successor has been named, according to executives.

WSBK, currently an independent station also known as Channel 38, recently announced it would become a MyNetworkTV affiliate. The CBS-owned station is a sister station of CBS affiliate WBZ. WSBK currently airs a half-hour evening newscast as 9 p.m., but will shift the newscast to 10 p.m. as part of the MyNetworkTV partnership, The Boston Globe reported.
This will put it in direct competition at 10 p.m. with WFXT’s evening news and WLVI’s evening news, which is staffed and operated by sister station WHDH. The WSBK broadcast will be anchored by Kate Merrill, who will be joined by meteorologist Todd Gutner and sports director Steve Burton.
Hall’s final day was Friday. A spokesperson for the station tells TVSpy that Hall resigned to pursue other opportunities.
Hall joined WFXT in 1997 as a planning editor and eventually moved on to serve as an executive producer of news events and specials for the station. She has been WFXT’s news director since 2001.
Before joining WFXT, Hall worked as an assignment editor for Boston CW-affiliate WLVI.
