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.
