“It’s been a blast filling in for Tanja (whose filling in for Judy 🤪) this week on @abc7chicago. It’s been 11 years since I have anchored a newscast and I must admit, this week reminded me why I fell in love with NEWS 28 years ago. Don’t get me wrong, the last decade hosting Windy City Live has been a dream and I would be lying if I said I didn’t miss it, but these days I’m feeling pretty blessed to be able to still do what I love and that is being a communicator. So, tomorrow catch me doing both my loves..” She posted on her Instagram account.
