Fox-owned WFLD-Channel 32 is bringing in new weather talent Bill Bellis. He has been a TV meteorologist in the Phoenix market for the past seven years. Bellis begins his new job at Channel 32 in late February. Undoubtedly Bellis will quickly discover the weather is more variable in Chicago than it typically is in Phoenix -- which may make his gig here more interesting. Or more challenging.
Current WFLD meteorologist Amy Freeze's contract is set to expire by year's end. No decision has been made about whether Freeze's contract will be renewed. If Freeze winds up departing the station, Bellis could become her replacement.
