I would bet she got weekends off because she negotiated it, or her agent from Chicago did. Keep in mind she came out of the LEAD spot at the CBS affiliate in Chicago. She was VERY major market and I think she came available at the right time for Fox 6, so they may have agreed to terms that would otherwise be non-negotiable.
Fox 6 has launched or strengthened the careers of several reporters and anchors, notably Jane Skinner who went to Fox News Channel and helped launch a brand new show before she left the industry altogether. So the chance to bring major market talent is rare. I can't personally name another personality of the top of my head that came here from a much bigger market. Jeremy can probably help out with that. I know what's his name on KISS FM was from STL -- haze. Speaking of, what's up with nights on KISS? They might as well bring back Tony Zamboni or Van McNeil if they're going to let jocks phone it in. The rotating door mess they've let on the air at night is depressing. At least Tony or Van would bring market credibility. Their farting into the mic wouldn't be perceived as an out of towner's farts.
