According to the WGN website Roy worked at WHDH from 1955-58 and also
did some work at channel 5 when it signed on in 57.

It says he did anchored the news at channel 5 and I am guessing he
must have done the 11 PM as I remember John Day did the early evening.
Leonard most likely jumped to 7 when Jack Hynes came on the scene as
Hynes being the Mayor's son was guaranteed lots of airtime.

Fred B Cole did the weather on 5 in the afternoon as well.

He moved to WNAC in 1958 and worked both radio and tv.

He joined WGN in 1967 after WNAC became WRKO.

The bio has no mention of CJAD.
