Sally Schulze anchors First at Four on Fox 32 Chicago and reports on news throughout the city and suburbs.
Born in the western suburbs and raised in Central Illinois, Sally is thrilled to be in working in Chicago and living on the north side with her family. She is a proud University of Illinois graduate who started her journalism career in Champaign, Illinois at WICD-TV and WCIA. Sally’s career then took her to WDEF-TV in Chattanooga where she worked as the main anchor. Next she headed to the Pacific Northwest, as the Eastside Bureau Chief and weekend anchor for Seattle’s KIRO-7, before moving to the opposite corner of the country to work as an investigative reporter and morning anchor at WESH-TV in Orlando.
Sally then decided to hang up her microphone for several years and concentrate on raising two children with her husband. She returned to TV news at Fox 32 Chicago in 2016, at first working behind the scenes and writing news stories. Then Sally got back in front of the camera to do what she loves: interviewing people throughout the Chicago area, telling their stories and uncovering the news that matters to viewers.
When not reporting the news, Sally loves to travel, cook, and read. But she admits she’s usually too busy for most of that while balancing work with the most important job of mothering two children and their dog, Theodosia Ravenclaw.
