Congrats to Christina Wall. She is working on air at WCIA after finishing up her graduate degree at Northwestern (I had U of I, but she has since corrected me). Christina worked part time doing weather graphics for Jim Barnett when I was anchoring weekends at WEEK.
She's a textbook example of how to move in and move up. She started as an intern while at U of I... then worked as an AP at channel 3.
