Fans of former WLS-Channel 7 reporter and weekend morning news anchor Kevin Roy who hoped he might soon return to the air in Chicago have reason to feel a little less hopeful this week.
It looks as if the former local TV talent has, at least for now, opted to retreat from Chicago. On his Facebook page, Roy announced he had packed up all his belongings in Chicago and moved them to a residence in Palm Springs, Calif. Via email, we asked him if that is the resort town where he intends to now base himself while he considers future opportunities in broadcast journalism or another career. He emailed us back the one-sentence response: "That's a good way of putting it."
Roy's contract was not renewed at WLS last April when he failed to show up for his weekend morning anchor job. Roy subsequently appealed to friends on his Facebook page for any job leads.
