Dave Savini expected to stay at WBBM-Channel 2

| No Comments

It looks as if investigative reporter Dave Savini will be staying at
WBBM-Channel 2, where he and Pam Zekman comprise the news department's
investigative unit. Sources say WBBM management -- worried that talent-hungry
WFLD-Channel 32 might try to poach Savini as it recently did long-time WBBM
political reporter Mike Flannery -- asked Savini for an early decision on
whether he intended to re-sign with the station when his current contract
expires.

Savini has reportedly signaled he wants to stay put. "We expect
Savini and Zekman to be with us for a long time to come," said a WBBM
spokeswoman. Which is good, because investigative reports have become a key
component of WBBM's news programming. Both Savini and Zekman are now very
visible on the station's newscasts presenting a number of mini-investigative
reports, as well as more in-depth pieces.
