WGN-Channel 9's Tom Negovan expected to recover from biking accident

| 1 Comment

Amazingly, Tom Negovan, a reporter and back-up anchor at Tribune Co.-owned WGN-Channel 9, is expected to recover fully from serious injuries suffered when the motorcycle he was riding collided head-on with a motorist on Harlem Avenue on Saturday. Negovan underwent two hours of spinal surgery to repair broken vertebrae Tuesday. The WGN reporter also suffered multiple lacerations.

Negovan had many years of experience riding a motorcycle and normally wears a helmet when he is on his bike. But when the accident occurred, Negovan reportedly wasn't wearing his protective helmet. Negovan could be back on the job at WGN within several weeks. His wife, Susanna, formerly wrote a nightlife column for the Sun-Times, and she is now editor of Michigan Avenue magazine, which focuses on fashion, society and other topics.

I hope he pulls through. I was wonder why he wasn't on the air lately.
