| 3 Comments

CF Bio Pix.JPGAt least one Chicago television station has actually hired a new reporter -- bucking the relentless rounds of layoffs and downsizing in local TV news departments in recent months.

Christian Farr is joining NBC-owned WMAQ-Channel 5 as a general assignment reporter and fill-in anchor effective Aug. 24. Previously Farr had been a correspondent for the past three years for WTTW-Channel 11's "Chicago Tonight" news magazine program. Farr's wife Karen Jordan is a weekend anchor at ABC-owned WLS-Channel 7, and his father-in-law Robert Jordan anchors weekend newscast at Tribune Co.-owned WGN-Channel 9
