Clare Lane has worked as a community newspaper reporter for 22nd Century Media and covered a range of topics as part of the Chicago Tribune’s metro desk. She’s blogged on the marketing and communications beat for PR Daily and freelance edited for the Portland Oregonian, Tampa Tribune, Houston Chronicle and other daily periodicals.

For WBEZ, she was an associate producer of its former daily talk show: The Morning Shift in 2016 and host of Weekend Edition in 2020-21. Most recently, she anchored afternoon traffic for Audacy’s all news station - WBBM 105.9 FM in Chicago. 

She’s thrilled to rejoin WBEZ and Chicago Public Media as a substitute anchor across all dayparts and general assignment reporter, covering the news of the city she’s called home for the past decade. She is an Oak Park native, University of Colorado Boulder graduate and avid CTA bus rider.
