From Robert Feder:
ABC-owned WLS-Channel 7 isn’t just Chicago’s top-rated television station. With employees related to three prominent Democrats, it also may have the most politically connected newsroom in town.
Morning news anchor Tanja Babich is the daughter-in-law of U.S. Senator Dick Durbin, recently hired per-diem reporter Meghan Kluth is the daughter of Congressman Mike Quigley, and per-diem reporter Alexis McAdams is the niece of Cook County Sheriff Tom Dart.
It’s strictly a coincidence, according to John Idler, president and general manager of ABC 7.
