Chicago morning team reunited after 78 days

Chicago TV

This column is part of NewscastStudio's regular "Chicago TV" column that covers the latest in Chicago broadcasting.

After 78 days, the ABC 7 Eyewitness morning team is finally back together.


Chicago morning anchor Tanja Babich, who returned from maternity leave Tuesday Aug. 21, 2019, tweeted a photo Wednesday of the entire morning team — co-anchor Terrell Brown, meteorologist Tracy Butler and traffic anchor Roz Varon.

Butler was out Tuesday when Babich returned from maternity leave, so Wednesday morning’s broadcast marked the first time since May that the anchor team has been together. 

WLS, in the meantime, has continued promoting its morning news with spots that include Babich, despite her anchor chair being filled by an assortment of fill ins.
