Robert Feder's Final Sun-Times Column

"Yes, this is it. I'm stepping down today after 28 years of daily coverage of radio and television for the Sun-Times," Robert Feder writes in Friday's Chicago Sun-Times.

True to form, Feder includes a series of "predictions I'm willing to bet will occur in the coming months and beyond" in his sign-off.

Among them:

It's no longer a question of if but when: Bob Sirott will replace Warner Saunders as the No. 1 news anchor at NBC-owned WMAQ-Channel 5.
Richard Roeper will return to national television as host of a new movie-review show that will uphold the fine tradition of the late, lamented "Ebert & Roeper" and "Siskel & Ebert."

The only question is whether he will launch it before or after the execrable current version of "At the Movies" disappears.
Two years after he was forced off the air in Chicago, Mancow Muller will be back.

Citadel Broadcasting is in the final stages of negotiations to put Muller on news/talk WLS-AM (890) in a slot that would allow him to continue his nationally syndicated morning show.
