TV reporter quitting to pursue career in a cappella

Chicago Tribune (IL):

WLS-Ch. 7 reporter Dan Ponce is leaving the city's top-rated TV news operation to pursue a music career with his a cappella group, Straight No Chaser, the station said Tuesday.

A Channel 7 spokeswoman confirmed Ponce will sign off Jan. 16, encouraged by the success of Straight No Chaser’s holiday CD. "We wish him well as Dan pursues his dream and his passion," the station said in a statement.

Ponce, leaving WLS after nearly three years, is the son of WTTW-Ch. 11 "Chicago Tonight" host Phil Ponce and the brother of WMAQ-Ch. 5 reporter Anthony Ponce.
