Charlie Meyerson has delivered Chicago's news for a long time — on air, online and in print.
That includes more than ten years at the city's legendary progressive rock station, WXRT-FM 93.1; almost nine years at pioneering "smooth jazz" station WNUA-FM 95.5; almost 13 years at Tribune Co., as senior producer and Daywatch columnist at chicagotribune.com and then as news director at news/talk WGN-AM 720; and, until July 2012, as Chicago bureau chief for FM News Chicago and New York, covering government, politics, culture and technology.
Meyerson — winner of dozens of journalism awards, including a national UPI award for investigative reporting — is an adjunct professor of journalism at Roosevelt University and an adjunct lecturer at Northwestern University's Medill School of Journalism.
Meyerson met his wife, Pam, in a Naperville traffic accident in 1978. ("No one was hurt, no tickets were issued, and that's all you need to know," he says. "His insurance company paid," Pam says.) They have three sons.
