WGN-Channel 9 to expand "Morning News" program

| 1 Comment

Tribune Co.-owned WGN-Channel 9 will begin its morning news show a half-hour earlier at 4:30 a.m., effective Aug. 16. The added half-hour, anchored by Val Warner, will feature news and traffic updates as well as weather with Paul Konrad. Then, beginning at 5 a.m., co-anchors Larry Potash and Robin Baumgarten will take over the reins, along with the rest of the "WGN Morning News" team that includes Pat Tomasulo on sports, Dean Richards on entertainment and Ana Belaval on the latest happenings around town.

"It's been six years since we've last expanded the 'WGN Morning News'," said WGN news director Greg Caputo, adding "we continue to evolve with our audience and offer viewers a first look at the day's news, weather, traffic and sports." "WGN Morning New" celebrated its 15th anniversary in September of last year.

HeyChannel Nine News Cast in the morning; I was a follower of Channel 7 news since 12 years ago because my parents were comitted watchers. My husband five years ago twisted my interest to you, Robin, Harry P otash, Paul Conrad. I did not get sold right awa y. Robin, your looks were very dole no TV eye candy until now. I could not see your angle. Now it all comes in clear!, a great edgy style.. The only and best News show. Robin your voice really has a warming pitch. you sound relaxed as if your gathered at a table in some ones house sharing coffee cake and coffee. Your a great presence with the guys like no other news anchor women. We both loved at times Paul Conrads personality antics flair ups. It really makes good TV. When the viewers e mailed comments about how Paul appears bored doing the wheather mad ehim really mad and Robin related to him in shock . great Television. Keep on with your twist .
