If you follow the Chicago Bears this season, you’ve probably received some of your Bears news from Fox, specifically WFLD. So you’ve probably noticed a fresh face in reporter Dionne Miller.
The full-time weekend sports anchor filled a long-running vacancy when she was hired in March.
Here’s part of her bio from My Fox Chicago
Dionne comes to Chicago after serving as host for Fox Sports Ohio the last 4 years, primarily on Pre & Postgame shows for the Cleveland Cavaliers. In addition, she served as college football sideline reporter for the Big Ten Network.
Miller began her career at KSVI/KHMT in Billings, Montana, serving as sports reporter before moving on to WPTZ in Burlington, Vermont as weekend sports anchor. After several years in New England, Miller then made the jump to XETV, San Diego before a stop in Sarasota, Florida. From there she moved back to her home state of Ohio, as Main Anchor of the “Columbus Sports Network” (WCSN, Columbus, OH).

Bears receiver Earl Bennett has been taken out of the game to undergo a concussion test.Fantasy Spin:Bennett reeled in a 12-yard touchdown in the first quarter for his only catch of the game. Brandon Marshall has been getting most of the targets on passing plays anyway so this shouldn't have much of an impact on quarterback Jay Cutler.
With a year left on a five-year deal that pays $8.47 million in 2013, Bears quarterback Jay Cutler said he'd consider taking a "hometown discount" to remain with the Bears because less money in a contract would mean more flexibility for the team in its efforts to acquire talent, Michael C. Wright of ESPN Chicago reports.

No Bears receiver has stepped up and claimed the club’s second wideout position. Yet, with the way Brandon Marshall is playing, a clear-cut second option may not even be necessary.
