FTVLive was the FIRST to tell you on Friday that WBBM in Chicago had parted ways with morning Anchor Susan Carlson.

With still 3 days left in the very important May ratings, the station kicked Carlson to the curb. The station has yet to make any official announcement about Carlson leaving. 

But, that might not even be close to the biggest Anchor change at the CBS O&O.

Sources tell FTVLive that WBBM has started a quiet search to replace primary anchor Rob Johnson.

One source tells FTVLive that Johnson will be leaving the station in the very near future and the hunt for a replacement is one.

No word yet if Johnson is leaving the station voluntarily or forcibly, but either way it is a blow to the station that continues to struggle in the ratings.

Johnson came to WBBM in August 2006 from WLS-TV where he worked since 1998 as weekend anchor and reporter.
