HP photo.jpegHarry Porterfield is back. After leaving ABC-owned WLS-Channel 7 last Thursday, Porterfield, 81,is returning to CBS-owned WBBM-Channel 2 to co-anchor the station's 30-minute 11 a.m. newscast alongside Roseanne Tellez five days a week and will work as a reporter for station broadcasts. Porterfield starts his new job Aug. 10.

The move to WBBM marks a return to the station where Porterfield first launched his 45-year-long television career. WBBM News Director Jeff Kiernan said Porterfield also will continue his familiar "Someone You Should Know" profiles at Channel 2. The indefatigable Porterfield said: "Telling stories and reporting the news is what I do, and I'm not done yet, even at age 81."
