Amy Jacobson, whose firing last July after more than 10 years as a reporter at NBC-owned WMAQ-Channel 5 made national news, taped a TV pilot Thursday with radio host Mancow Muller for Fox News Channel.
Their segments together were shot at the Loop loft where Muller broadcasts his syndicated morning radio show.
No word yet on when the pilot will air or whether it will get picked up as a regular series.
Jacobson was hired at Channel 5 by news boss Joel Cheatwood, who’s now senior vice president of development for Fox.
Update: An FNC insider tells ICN, “This is another classic example of Feder’s shoddy reporting. Had he fact-checked like a true journalist, he would have known that Cheatwood never hired Jacobson in Chicago — she was already there by the time he arrived.”
