WGN News Director Greg Caputo's last day is Friday. Caputo announced last month that he was retiring from the Tribune owned station.
So who replaces him?
Assistant News Director Jennifer Lyons is the odds on favorite to get the job.
Robert Feder says that Lyons is 20-year veteran of WGN, Lyons has taken a larger role in the news department since Caputo’s announcement and will continue to oversee the department after next week, according to Greg Easterly, president and general manager.
Lyons, 47, has been managing the daily newsroom operations for WGN and CLTV since she was promoted from executive producer of the morning news to assistant news director in 2008.
