Janet Davies ABC

After a 14-year run for “190 North,” ABC-owned WLS-Channel 7 said last month it was pulling the plug on the show, locally-produced leisure and entertainment-focused weekly show that had been hosted since its inception by Davies, who came on board at the station in 1984.

Three correspondents and three producers that contributed to the show were laid off in the wake of the announcement.

Channel 7 General Manager John Idler said: “190 North” would not be gone forever, however. He plans to keep the show alive as a quarterly special. Channel 7 cited the need to cut station overhead as the reason for ending the weekly version of the show.

According to sources, the new deal Davies could sign would allow her to continue on with the station reporting entertainment news, as well as hosting and working on special programs in conjunction with the programming department.

In addition to hosting “190 North,” Davies has anchored a number of local parades, the Festival of Lights special each November and the annual New Year’s Eve special that Channel 7 produces.

Over the years, she has become famous, in a way, for her hairdos, which she has been known to change up with some frequency.

The last regular edition of “190 North” will air this Sunday. In addition to a retrospective look at top moments from the show’s past 14 years, this “190 North” will feature a segment with Smashing Pumpkins frontman Billy Corgan, who also was featured on the first edition of the show.

Sunday’s new segment will focus on a tea house Corgan recently opened in north suburban Highland Park, where the musician resides.

ABC 7’s Janet Davies: “I am blessed to have this job”

Joining Justin at The Big Table tonight is ABC 7 entertainment reporter and broadcast personality Janet Davies.

Hats and horns: Janet Davies is back!

Good news, fellow merrymakers: The lovely and charming Janet Davies, who’s helped Chicagoans ring in every New Year since 1991, will be right where she belongs on WLS-Channel 7 for “Countdown Chicago 2014.”

Word at the ABC-owned station is that Davies again will host the local New Year’s Eve special with longtime partner Mark Giangreco.

They’ll be joined by Val Warner and Ryan Chiaverini of “Windy City Live.” Of course, four hosts for a one-hour show may be a bit unwieldy, but half the fun of watching the live broadcast is to see what goes wrong.

Plans for the Dec. 31 special are still being finalized, but producers say Hosea Sanders and Ji Suk Yi also are expected to return as contributors.

Davies’ role this year was far from certain after the cancellation in March of “190 North,” the weekly lifestyle and entertainment magazine she’d hosted and produced for 14 years.

With her contract up at ABC 7, it was unclear whether she would continue in any capacity at the station, where she’d been a feature reporter and program host since 1984.
