Out the Door at The Firm

The main Anchor at The Firm's Chicago station is signing off. 

WFLD Anchor Jeff Herndon is stepping down at the end of the month as 5 and 9 p.m. weekday Anchor. 

“We wanted Jeff to remain part of our team, but right now family is Jeff’s top priority,” Matt Piacente, news director of Fox 32, told staffers in an email Thursday. “So Jeff is going back home to Kansas. I personally wish Jeff all the best as a colleague, and as a friend.”

Herndon joined Fox Chicago August 2013 from KAKE in Wichita, Kansas, where he anchored news for a dozen years. 

Herndon did not responded to requests for comment.
