Fox-owned WFLD-Channel 32 said Thursday it will join the crowd and start its "Good Day Chicago" early morning show at 4:30 a.m., effective Monday. The show previously began at 5 a.m. Dawn Hasbrouck and Kori Chambers will anchor the additional half hour of programming. The duo were already named to anchor "Good Day Chicago" from 5 to 7 a.m. Also starting Monday Anna Davlantes and Corey McPherrin will anchor "Good Day Chicago" from 7 to 10 a.m.
With the move to an earlier start time for "Good Day Chicago," early morning programs on all the major local stations excepting WBBM-Channel 2 will soon begin at the same time. WGN-Channel 9 and WLS-Channel 7 also recently announced they will make 4:30 a.m. the regular start time for their respective early morning shows.
