Rob Martier

Rob Martier began his broadcasting career at CJAD Radio in Montreal. There he covered everything from the NHL, F1, CFL, PGA, and any other big sporting event.

Rob moved back to Chicago where he landed at WGN Radio as evening news anchor.

Now at WLS-AM, Rob still anchors the evening news, but has added sports to his responsibilities.

“I’m looking forward to this amazing opportunity to join the U of I Football broadcasts. After meeting the U of I staff, it looks as though it’s going to be a great year for the Fighting Illini and Big Ten football. As I like to say ‘U of I is the Windy City’s Big Ten Team.’
