CHICAGO ANCHOR SLATED FOR “THE TALK”

Irika Sargent, the 5, 6 and 10 p.m. news anchor at CBS O&O WBBM will be showing up mid-week as a guest co-host of  The Eye’s “The Talk,”.

Maybe the extra exposure can help her fortunes at the Chicago station.

Sargent’s teaming with Rob Johnson, begun back in 2015 has shown less-than-stellar results.

Robert Feder reports that the station’s newscasts have continued to lose viewers with the May results showing that late news running a distant fourth — and down 50 percent in key adult demos from last year.
