Remembering Allison Payne, the news anchor for WGN TV

Story Highlights

  • “Allison was smart and eager to learn and quickly grew into her position as lead anchor at a television ‘superstation,’ which could then be seen by viewers from Alaska to South America,” said Jordan, who retired in 2016 after four decades in the TV news business, most of them with WGN. “I would call her a Supernova, a brilliantly bright star that cast a shimmering aura upon those who knew her. But, lamentably, just like such as star, that suddenly increases its light output tremendously and then tragically fades to obscurity, Allison, sadly, could not sustain her glory and died alone.”
