Gordon joins Cumulus Chicago and 890 WLS-AM following a 15-year broadcast journalism career with Chicago’s WGN Radio, where she was most recently News Anchor, Afternoon Drive.

She started her career at WHAS Radio in Louisville, KY, where she won an Associated Press Broadcasters Award for local team coverage in Louisville during the September 11th attacks and a 2015 Silver Dome Award from the Illinois Broadcasters Association for her work on “Fighting Hunger Chicago Style: Food Insecurities and the Greater Chicago Food Depository.”

Stephanie Tichenor, Program Director, 890 WLS-AM, said: “Finding the facts and reporting the news has never been an easy job. Doing it in this environment hasn’t made it any easier. You need experience and grit to craft a meaningful, accurate newscast and Kim Gordon has both of those qualities in spades.”

Tichenor added: “I’m delighted to have Kim join our 890 WLS-AM News Team as the PM Drive Anchor. Her attention to facts and detail will enhance our news product and yes, she can probably teach John Howell a thing or two about golf.”

Gordon commented: “I am thrilled to be joining the WLS news team and to be working with John Howell in the afternoons. It’s an honor to follow in the footsteps of John Dempsey. I’ve long admired his integrity and passion for news. I hope to continue that legacy at WLS.”
