Audacy names Cisco Cotto morning drive anchor for WBBM Newsradio (WCFS-FM/WBBM-AM). Cotto will be heard weekdays from 5:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. CT, beginning January 3. He succeeds Pat Cassidy, who recently announced his retirement.
“We are excited to welcome Cisco into morning drive,” said Rachel Williamson, Regional President and Market Manager, Audacy Chicago. “He has proven to be a true professional and teammate for the last seven years both reporting and anchoring on WBBM. Not only does he bring a bright energy, but is a great communicator and strong journalist – the perfect combination as Chicagoans wake up each morning.”
“Pat and Felicia spent many years as voices Chicagoans trusted to wake them up with all of the most important stories to start their day,” said Cotto. “I’ll work hard to maintain what they built. Thanks to Ron Gleason, Greg Solk, and Rachel Williamson for trusting me with such an important show on this great station. I look forward to continuing to be a small part of the award-winning news team on WBBM for many years to come.”
Cotto originally joined the station as a street reporter and fill-in anchor, later moving to midday anchoring and host of the WBBM noon business hour. Subsequently taking over that role is Rob Hart, who has been with the station since 2016, heard on the business hour and in middays. He has also regularly anchored weekend mornings and has served as a reporter for the station.
Listeners can tune in to WBBM Newsradio (WCFS-FM/WBBM-AM) in Chicago on air, as well as nationwide on the Audacy app and website. Fans can also connect with the station on social media via Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.
