News Director Stepping Down in Chi-Town

You can stick a fork in longtime WGN News Director Greg Caputo....he's done. 

Caputo told staffers at the station Today that he is stepping down at the end of June. He has been with the WGN since 2002. 

Caputo joined WGN from WLVI in Boston, a former Tribune Co. station that was sold in 2006. Previously he was vice president and news director for WFLD-Ch. 32 in Chicago for eight years. He also was news director at New York and Washington, D.C., stations, and holds a master's degree in journalism from Northwestern University's Medill School of Journalism. 

"Being a part of WGN was a goal for me for years," Caputo said.  "Being here for the last 11 years has been even better than I thought it would be."

No successor has been named, according to executives.
