WBBM Launches Weekend Morning Newscasts

Chicago CBS O&O WBBM is bringing back weekend morning newscasts, Time Out Chicago’s Robert Feder reports.

“It’s an important time period that serves a lot of news viewers,” WBBM president-GM Bruno Cohen told Feder. “We reluctantly left it several years ago for financial reasons and we’re glad to restore the service.”

Beginning September 22, Marissa Bailey (pictured) will anchor the hourlong newscast, which will air at 8 a.m. on Saturdays and at 7 a.m. on Sundays. Bailey will be joined by meteorologist Ed Curran and freelance reporter Courtney Gousman.
