Reporter Nancy Loo headed to WGN-Channel 9

| 1 Comment

Nancy Loo is joining Tribune Co.-owned WGN-Channel 9 news department as reporter and fill-in anchor, effective June 1. Loo was previously an anchor/reporter at WFLD-Channel 32, but earlier this spring, WFLD management decided not to renew Loo's contract. She was apparently a victim of the station's ongoing efforts to revamp its news department.

Aside from her skills as a TV reporter and anchor, Loo's facility with social media apparently caught the attention of WGN news director Greg Caputo: "She (Nancy Loo) hosts her own blog on Tribune's 'Chicago Now' blog site. And if you're a Facebook friend or a Twitter follower, you already know her skill in using these new media," said Caputo.

Prior to moving to Chicago in 2001, Loo was a news anchor and reporter for WABC-Channel 7 in New York. In 1993, she was part of a team of journalists who launched New York 1 News.
