Emmy-winning journalist Tom Negovan joined WGN News in June 2005 as a reporter and fill-in anchor.
Tom arrived in Chicago from Philadelphia, where he served as weekend anchor and investigative reporter at CBS-owned KYW-TV. While there, Tom anchored anniversary coverage of the 9/11 attacks from Ground Zero, reported around-the-clock on the Space Shuttle Columbia tragedy from the Johnson Space Center in Houston, and covered the war in Iraq live from Baghdad.
From 1989 to 2002, Tom served as anchor and reporter at various television stations across Canada, including stops in Calgary, Toronto and Winnipeg, Manitoba.
Tom graduated cum laude from the University of North Dakota with a degree in Communications. While still in college, he served as operations manager and morning anchor at KFJM Radio and as a photographer and general assignment reporter at CBS affiliate KXJB-TV.
Thrilled to be living in his favorite city and working at a station he watched as a kid, Tom takes pride in working with the next generation of communicators; serving as a scholarship judge for the William Randolph Hearst Foundation and on the Board of Directors of Street-Level Youth Media.
In 2007, Tom completed his second Chicago Marathon, was named one of Chicago’s Most Eligible Bachelors, and was quickly debachelorized by Sun-Times columnist Susanna Homan. They were married in 2008.
In 2009, Tom spent two weeks in Afghanistan embedded with members of the Illinois National Guard for his series “Assignment Afghanistan.”
