WGN launches a new 10PM newscast starting tonight and that means that Weather King Tom Skilling has to stretch his schedule.
So, Skilling is being pulled off the 11AM to 1PM newscast, so he can focus on the late shows.
“We all know there’s only one Tom Skilling, and with his role at 10 p.m., we needed to shift his schedule a bit,” said Greg Easterly, president and general manager of WGN. “He’ll continue his weather reports on the 9 p.m. news, as well as the evening news at 4 p.m. and 5 p.m.”
Replacing him on “WGN Midday News,” will be meteorologist Demetrius Ivory, who’ll also continue to appear on “WGN Morning News” from 4 to 6 a.m.
