note: As of February 11th, 2004, Carol Marin and her producer Don Mosely
returned to WMAQ-TV. For more on Carol Marin, visit the "End
of an Era" page. And don't forget to look for her columns in the Chicago
decision to leave WMAQ-TV following
Channel Five's 10 pm newscast of May 1st, 1997 meant the end of two teams that
had embodied the finest traditions of broadcast journalism in Chicago.
One of the teams---Carol Marin and her co-anchor Ron Magers---was what the viewers
at home saw.
The second team---Carol
Marin and her producer Don Mosely (aided over the years by researcher Wendy Frame
and her successor Susan Evans)---was an almost constant inspiration for all those
who worked at Channel Five during the Marin-Magers years.
