The newest face on WBBM in Chicago is (sort of) crossing the street from Telemundo’s WSNS.
So, for some Chicago viewers, César Rodríguez won’t be a new face at all.
He was a general-assignment news reporter and sports anchor at his former station.
He’ll be a per diem reporter at the CBS O&O.
In February Rodríguez was not renewed after six years at WSNS.
Union activists said his ouster was related to his role on the negotiating team of the SAG/AFTRA local.
Management denied the allegation.
