WFLD-Channel 32 makes Carol Fowler news director

| 1 Comment

Carol Fowler PHOTO.JPGCarol 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."

Greetings Carol. I certainly hope you remember me.
Interviewed with you back in 2002 (can't believe it's been that long)> But I had to follow my heart and care for my parents in their final days.
As I recall, we hit it off pretty well and you actually told me you wanted to hire me.
For some reason the WGN top gun didn't share your opinion of me.
Nonetheless, I keep on producing some very compelling and innovative newscasts.
I would love to talk with you again about possibly a producer's prosition.
A friend of mine is one of your EP's - Tony Statz. I love him to death.

Anyhows, would love to talk with you sometime.
My # is 606-634-4072.

PS -- Remember we talked about my upbringing in Kentucky and it compared to growing up in Mississippi .
