Regina Waldroup, a former news anchor and reporter at CLTV the Tribune owned cable station in Chicago is coming back to TV news.
Waldroup, who left TV and went into teaching broadcast journalism at two Chicago area colleges, is returning to television news as a part-time reporter for WMAQ.
Our man Robert Feder says that Frank Whittaker, station manager and vice president of news at the NBC O&O, confirmed her hiring Tuesday in a memo:
"Please welcome Regina Waldroup to the newsroom," he told staffers. "Regina is joining us as a per diem reporter and will work part-time to fill out our reporting schedule."
It's a homecoming for Waldroup, who worked earlier in her career as a desk assistant and field producer for WMAQ. After on-air news jobs in Coos Bay, Oregon, and Albany and Elmira, New York, she joined CLTV as an anchor/reporter in 2006.
