Jumping Across the Street in Chi-Town

It appears that former WMAQ Weather Anchor Cheryl Scott, maybe setting up shop across the street at WLS.

Robert Feder says that Scott is close to accepting an offer from WLS-Channel 7, where she eventually would succeed longtime weather Anchor Jerry Taft as the station’s top meteorologist.

Finalizing the deal has been delayed by Scott’s former employer, WMAQ-Channel 5,which could exercise its right to match ABC 7’s offer, raising the slim possibility that she would return to the NBC-owned station.

But insiders said they don’t expect that to happen.
