ONE LAST SIGNOFF FOR CHICAGO’S JOSE BARBOSA

For more than 30 years, Jose Barbosa held forth as one of Chicago’s foremost Hispanic-language broadcast journalists.

That comes to an end on Friday, when he steps down from his 5 and 10 pm anchor chair at Univision’s WGBO.

Barbosa launched “Noticias Univision Chicago” at WGBO in 1995 after a ten-year run as a news anchor and reporter at former Univision affiliate WCIU.

We’re sure Univision’s ongoing financial woes played no part in his decision to get out while the getting is good.

But it’s good timing.
