On the day WFLD-Channel 32 confirmed the exclusive here that Corey McPherrin would be switching from evening sports anchor to morning news co-host, the Fox-owned station put out the word that his slot on the 9 p.m. weeknight newscast would be filled -- at least for the foreseeable future -- by weekend sports anchor Jill Carlson. The Tribune reported it. The Sun-Times reported it. Chicagoland Radio and Media reported it. Even I reported it.
Wrong. Wrong. Wrong. Wrong.
On Friday, Carlson was notified that she's on her way out.
