Three months after BILL CAMERON was forced out in the "Black FRIDAY" purge at CITADEL News/Talk WLS-A/CHICAGO, he's returned to his old job as political editor and City Hall reporter, writes ROBERT FEDER in THE CHICAGO SUN TIMES..
"I couldn't be happier to be back on the beat I've loved for 40 years," CAMERON said TUESDAY.
His return to the station was made possible by the resignation last week of reporter RYAN HERMES, who obtained an early release from his WLS contract to rejoin the ILLINOIS RADIO NETWORK.
CAMERON, a fixture in the City Hall press room since the era of Mayor RICHARD J. DALEY, was the most prominent of the casualties when Citadel gutted the news department of WLS and fired 14 staffers at the end of FEBRUARY.
