Andy Shaw's last hurrah at WLS-TV

| No Comments

Shaw_Andy_smilecolor[2].jpgAfter 25 distinguished years as a reporter at ABC-owned WLS-Channel 7, Andy Shaw heads to Washington this weekend to cover Barack Obama's inauguration as the nation's 44th President of the United States. It will be Shaw's swan song as WLS' chief political reporter. Shaw's last day reporting from Chicago will be Thursday, after which the WLS staff is throwing a party for him at the station. Then it's off to Washington, where Shaw delivers his final report for WLS on Jan. 21.

What's next for the TV news veteran? Shaw told us he will soon head south for six weeks of sun and fun in Florida and South America, before heading home to Chicago to explore his options post-WLS. Stay tuned.
