McDonnell will report to Manuel Abud, president of the Telemundo Station Group.
"Chris has an extensive background in broadcast television, including both Spanish-language and general market. He is no stranger to Chicago or Telemundo, having grown up in Chicago and previously managed the Telemundo Chicago sales team," said Abud. "His strong sales background, coupled with his knowledge of both the market and our organization, make him the ideal leader for our station."
McDonnell has been with NBC since 1997.
