HEADING HOME TO THE BLUEGRASS STATE

It’s one last Chicago book and then back to Kentucky for WFLD anchor Kristen Nicole aka Pflum.

The Chicago anchor announced she’s expected her third child this summer and after maternity leave she’ll head back home to Lexington, Ky.

Her new home will be Sinclair’s WDKY

I am going to take some time off to enjoy maternity leave with all my boys, but this fall I am thrilled to be joining Marvin Bartlett anchoring central Kentucky’s first and most watched 10pm newscast on FOX 56! I’ll also have the opportunity to work alongside some incredibly talented veteran journalists at our news partner, WKYT. I couldn’t have imagined a more perfect scenario for my family,” she said in a Facebook post.

She arrived in Chicago from WLEX back in 2016.

Her last day in Chicago will be May 31.

She’ll return to the Lexington airwaves in October, where they will have to get used to the idea that Kristen Pflum is now Kristen Nicole.
