Antwan Lewis departs WGN-Channel 9 for the Big Apple

| No Comments

A WGN-Channel 9 spokeswoman has confirmed that general assignment reporter Antwan Lewis left the station earlier this week. He is moving to New York to take on an as-yet unidentified new broadcast job in that market.

Lewis had been with WGN News for three years, and over the course of his time there he contributed to the station's morning, midday and flagship 9 p.m. newscasts. In January, 2008, he became the lead reporter of WGN's on-going series "The Fugitive Hunters." Prior to joining WGN, Lewis spent four years as a reporter and fill-in anchor at KTVK-TV in Phoenix.

Lewis' duties at Channel 9 will be handled by free-lance reporters currently working for the station. A decision on a permanent replacement is expected within a few weeks.
