Anna Davlantes moves to WFLD

In a coup for Fox-owned WFLD-TV, the station landed one of Chicago’s most popular news personalities.

Anna Davlantes, who spent nearly a decade at NBC-owned WMAQ until leaving the station earlier this year, has now signed a multi-year deal with WFLD, where she will be handling contributing anchor and reporting duties.

The move is a plus for the struggling station, which has lagged behind practically every other news outlet in the market – even behind a surging WBBM-TV.

She will debut this Monday.
