"No Frills" Newscast No More?

Carol Marin may be negotiating an exit from WBBM, where her "no frills" late-night newscast has received critical praise but low ratings, Chicago Sun-Times columnist Robert Feder reported today (Wednesday), citing industry rumors.

Feder also said that station executives have been meeting with Asha Blake, a former co-host of NBC's Later Today, to replace Marin.
