Samantha Zackowitz has joined ABC-owned WLS-Channel 7 as a staff producer. She will focus much of her time on developing segments for the station's "190 North" weekly leisure and entertainment program.
Zackowitz started at WLS as an intern in the news and programming departments and then continued her involvement with the station as a freelance producer. Three years later Zackowitz, we're told, has two Emmys for excellence in the television industry on her mantel. Along the way, Zackowitz also got to produce her dream segment for "190 North" about the Chicago Blackhawks season that culminated in winning the Stanley Cup.
