Tammie Souza back, Amy Freeze out at Ch. 32

Tower Ticker | Fox-owned WFLD-Ch. 32 on Thursday announced its re-hire of weathercaster Tammie Souza, a move rumored so long that viewers can be excused for thinking it occurred. It also has hired an Indianapolis anchor as a general assignment reporter.

As expected, WFLD will not be renewing the the contract of lead weathercaster Amy Freeze, who’s expected to leave in the next month after four years at the station. Bill Bellis, the chief meteorologist at Phoenix’s KNXV-TV since 2003, is set to slide into Freeze’s Channel 32 post in late February.

Sources said there were discussions with Freeze about continuing at WFLD in a non-weather role, but nothing has come of that.

In a move not involving the weather department, WFLD has hired Tisha Lewis, an anchor at Chicago Tribune parent Tribune Co.’s WXIN-TV in Indianapolis, as a general assignment reporter, beginning Feb. 2.
