CUMULUS Talk WLS-A/CHICAGO has tapped former crosstown CBS O&O WBBM-TV (CBS 2)/CHICAGO morning anchor SUSAN CARLSON as afternoon news anchor for ROE CONN and RICHARD ROEPER's show, starting later this month, according to CHICAGO media reporter ROBERT FEDER.
CARLSON, who did traffic on CONN's show in 1998-2002, fills the slot left vacant by the retirement of JIM JOHNSON after 45 years with WLS.
"We are thrilled to have SUSAN back," CONN told FEDER. "She was an instrumental part of our run in the late '90s and we're looking forward to a great future."
