CHICAGO, IL, August 23, 2021 – Cumulus Media announces that it has appointed Mallory Vor Broker as reporter for 890 WLS-AM. Vor Broker will cover Chicago City Hall and the political beat for 890 WLS-AM, filling the role vacated by Bill Cameron, who retired on August 20th after a momentous 51-year career.

Vor Broker joins the 890 News Team from The John Howell Show on 890 WLS-AM, where she was Executive Producer for the past two and a half years. She also served as a producer for Steve Dahl, Roe Conn and Lauren Cohn during her nearly 10 years as a producer for Cumulus Chicago. Before joining Cumulus, she was an assistant producer for CBS Radio. Vor Broker holds a B.A. degree in English Creative Writing from Ohio University and a Master’s degree in Journalism from Roosevelt University.

Stephanie Tichenor, Program Director, 890 WLS-AM, said: “As our new City Hall Reporter, Mallory will tell the latest local news stories that matter to Chicago. She brings a fresh perspective and deep experience as a storyteller to this integral role. We look forward to continuing WLS’ superb coverage of City Hall and welcome Mallory to the 890 News Team.”

Nick Gale, News Director, 890 WLS-AM, commented: “While Bill Cameron has left some big shoes to fill, Mallory joins the team equipped with the knowledge of how Chicago-style politics work and a Rolodex to compliment that. We welcome Mallory to the team, knowing she is well prepared to keep WLS listeners informed on what’s happening at the hall as well as down in Springfield.”

Vor Broker remarked: “I am thrilled to begin my new role as City Hall Reporter for WLS-AM 890. It’s a great opportunity to cover the dynamic political landscape in Chicago and Illinois after years of producing high-profile shows. I look forward to continuing to bring high-quality, thoughtful reporting to WLS-AM 890.”
