Reporter, Curious City

Adriana Cardona-Maguigad covers immigration for WBEZ. Before that, she covered education and spent a few years reporting for WBEZ’s Curious City.

One of Adriana’s most meaningful professional experiences involves the time she spent in Sidi Moumen, Casablanca training a group of young adults on how to produce stories for the radio.  

Some of her most outstanding work includes an award-winning audio project for WBEZ and NPR’s This American Life about unregulated drug rehab centers in Chicago drawing people from Puerto Rico. Her investigation was recognized with a Sigma Delta Chi Award by the Society of Professional Journalists, a National Edward R. Murrow Award, and three local Peter Lisagor Awards.

Adriana is from Medellin, Colombia. She moved to Chicago in 2005.
