White Sox executive vice president Kenny Williams and wife Zoraida Sambolin, a news anchor for Channel 5, took a loss on their Streeterville townhome. The couple listed the five-story house in the RiverView development in March for $2.6 million and then cut $100,000 from the asking price not long after. The three-bedroom, 3,900-square-foot home sold Friday for $2.3 million, less than the $2.4 million the couple paid for it 1½ years ago. Public records do not yet identify the buyer.
