Charlie Gibson to report from Chicago on Friday

| No Comments

Does ABC "World News" Anchor Charlie Gibson know something we don't? Who knows. In any event, Gibson will be in Chicago Friday to anchor live reports from Daley Plaza, where a crowd is expected to gather to hear which city is named host for the 2016 Summer Olympics. The news is expected to be announced from Copenhagen, Denmark, at approximately 11:57 a.m. Chicago time. The scene Gibson will be reporting from is likely to turn rather glum quickly if the vote goes against Chicago and in favor of either Rio de Janeiro, Madrid or Tokyo, the other three cities competing for the 2016 Olympic Games. Gibson also plans to host his regular 5:30 p.m. "World News" program from Chicago.
