Welcome back to the 10 for 10 where we’ll name another Anchor in our top 10 Chicago News Sports Anchors of All-Time.
#6. Mark Giangreco
- WMAQ NBC Channel 5
- WLS ABC Channel 7
After moving to Chicago in 1982, the Giangreco name, face, and voice have become a staple in Chicago Sports Anchoring ever since. The forever smart-ass approach to anchoring is strangely unique to Mark, and he has turned it into a big positive. Without seeing more of Mark, some viewers might be quick to judge based on his somewhat snarky tone, but after peeling back a few layers and getting to know his take a bit better, you quickly see that everything he says is in good fun. A counterbalance to the same old fake grin and TV face telling you ‘maybe next year’. Just relax, it’s not personal. This guy won a legitimate Father of the Year award, so believe me, this is just for good TV.
Mark left NBC5 to go to ABC7 in 1994, where he has been the lead sports anchor for nearly 20 years on Chicago’s highest rated news program.
