Fox-owned WFLD-Channel 32 has raided the city's top-ranked news operation for its new manager of video content. After a seven-year run at No. 1-rated ABC-owned WLS-Channel 7, Jonathan Plater has jumped to Channel 32 to supervise the integration of the latest news gathering technologies in the station's news department. He starts his new job on Dec. 30, 2009. Plater most recently was media manager and editor at WLS. He also has experience as a news photographer, both at Channel 7 and CBS-owned WBBM-Channel 2. Also, Chris Willadsen has been promoted to ENG supervisor and chief photographer supervising the photography unit at WFLD. Willadsen has been with the station 22 years.
