Emily's LinkedIn now lists the WILX position as Sept 2020-Aug 2021, so yup... she's definitely gone. She hasn't listed her new position yet though.

The day before Emily was supposed to start -- she got an offer somewhere else out of state and told Wilx she was leaving. Whole plan blew up on them. A year getting paid to do nothing at WILX completely worthless. So, back to Darrin whose retirement happened before Emily was even in the picture. Looks like grass wasn't greener on the side so it worked out for him.
so- all that buzz for nothing new but a new logo.
any idea what market or station that Emily will be at? I miss seeing her beautiful face...

Has any on-air talent ever gone directly from Lansing to Chicago? I think this may be a first.

Interestingly enough, the open meteorologist position from Diane's departure at WLNS is no longer on Nexstar's jobs page. Have to wonder if Emily is going back there...
Emily was hired by Fox 32 Chicago as chief meteorologist.

That's impressive, but of the folks currently on that station's weather staff, I'd feel really shitty about being passed over in favor of someone coming from tiny Lansing, MI.


Using Robinhood for online equities and options trades is a terrible idea. USE A LEGITIMATE BROKER-DEALER INSTEAD! (Fidelity, Schwab, TD Ameritrade, Edward Jones, etc.)
