Lexington Anchor Jumps to Chicago

It used to be in would be next to impossible for an Anchor to jump from the 63rd market to No. 3. But as they say, the times are a changing

So, WLEX Anchor Kristen Pflum is leaving Lexington and headed to WFLD the Fox O&O in Chicago. 

When Pflum gets to the Windy City, she will change her name to Kristen Nicole.

She's been hired to solo the station's new Saturday and Sunday morning newscasts. She will start with the station the last week of March and will begin anchoring the weekend version of "Good Day Chicago" on April 2nd. 

Tom Doerr, WFLD-TV Vice President and News Director (who will be leaving the station soon), said of his new hire: "Kristen's strong storytelling abilities and passion for journalism will be a tremendous asset to our morning newscast."

When Pflum/Nicole gets to Chicago she might want to ditch the hat and the hood. As you know, that is frowned upon at the station. 

Just saying.....
