Geary Yonker

National Account Executive

Geary Yonker leads the national sales efforts for WBEZ’s Corporate Sponsorship team. He works with companies and non-profits to find essential funding for all of Chicago Public Media’s programs and podcasts. He also likes to remind people that within these organizations that support the station there are real people who believe in the station and the important role it plays in our community. Geary was an early member of the Vocalo staff, spent the aughts at the Chicago Reader, and was the local manager of The Onion. He is one of the founders of the Logan Square Arts Festival and inherited an abandoned dairy farm that he can’t stop talking about. You may also hear him on the air during pledge drives.
