It used to be, before you could land a job in a big market like Chicago, you had to work your way up and pay your dues.
Often that meant years in a small market, followed by a jump to a medium market, then to a top 20 and then Chicago.
Audrina Bigos has skipped a bunch of those steps.Bigos has gone from her college station to Charlotte's WCCB to WBBM in Chicago.
She will be a General Assignment Reporter starting on August 24th.
Jeff Kiernan, WBBM-TV Vice President and News Director, said of his new hire: "I am thrilled to welcome Audrina to our news team. She is a talented reporter, who can work on multiple platforms to help tell original stories of what's happening in and around Chicago."
Bigos shared her excitement in today's announcement, saying: "Chicago is a reporter's dream city and I'm happy that CBS 2 has chosen me to help tell the stories that matter. I also look forward to becoming a part of this dynamic and diverse community and continuing my advocacy for girls."
