The new early morning news show under development at WBBM-Channel 2 will feature Megan Glaros as meteorologist. The Dyer, Ind. native comes to WBBM directly from WCBS-TV in New York, where she was the station's weekend meteorologist and entertainment reporter. Glaros also may do some entertainment reporting for WBBM's early morning show.
At WCBS, Glaros also worked with Steve Bartelstein, who is returning to his native Chicago from New York to anchor WBBM's new early morning news show that will debut Aug. 30. Bartelstein resigned from WCBS in early 2009.
Sources said Glaros was interested in the WBBM early morning news weather job because she wanted to return to the Chicago area. Glaros graduated from Indiana University, where she studied journalism and atmospheric sciences.
WBBM's new early morning show replaces "Monsters & Money in the Morning," which suffered from low ratings and lasted only seven months. The "Monsters" round-table show featured talk about finance, sports and other news of the day and had four co-hosts: Sun-Times financial columnist Terry Savage, Mike Hegedus, Dan Jiggetts and Mike North.
