Carol Fowler has been named news director at Fox's WFLD-Channel 32. She replaces Andrew Finlayson, who has been named director of online content and business development for the Fox Television Stations.
Fowler, who starts her new job at Fox on Feb. 2, is resurfacing just weeks after she was fired as the news director at CBS-owned WBBM-Channel 2. Fowler had been at WBBM for six years, but was unable to boost the station in the ratings.
Finlayson had come to WFLD three years ago from a Nashviille, Tenn. station, where he was also news director. WFLD Vice President and General Manager Patrick Mullen called Fowler "one of Chicago's most experienced and accomplished news directors."
