Former Chicago Anchor Lands at CNNI

Former WFLD Weekend Anchor Amara Walker, who left the Fox O&O last December has landed a gig at CNN.

Walker quit the Chicago station to move with her husband, plastic surgeon Thomas Walker, who’d landed a new position in Atlanta.

A CNN spokeswoman confirmed Wednesday that Walker signed a contract this week with CNN International as an anchor. She has been filling in on a free-lance basis for several months and appearing occasionally on CNN’s domestic channel.

WFLD still hasn’t named a replacement for Walker as weekend anchor. Reporter Lisa Chavarria has been filling in.
