CHICAGO, IL, December 19, 2016– Cumulus Media announces that it will debut a new live talk show featuring Bob Sirott and Marianne Murciano, Chicago’s favorite husband and wife on-air team, on WLS-AM 890, the flagship radio station of the Chicago Bulls and the Chicago White Sox. “Sirott and Murciano” will debut on WLS-AM 890 on Monday, January 2, 2017, and will air weekdays from 10AM-12 Noon.
Multiple Emmy-winning broadcasters Bob Sirott and Marianne Murciano previously hosted the popular Sirott and Murciano program weekdays from Noon-3PM on Chicago’s WGN Radio. With a longtime passionate fan base on-air and on social media, they are fixtures on the Chicago media landscape. They co-anchored Fox Thing in the Morning on WFLD-TV in Chicago from 1994 to 2000. Their web site, SusosFork.com, combines their personalities and passion for food. Most recently, Sirott was seen doing commentary on CBS News’ CBS Sunday Morning with Jane Pauley. Murciano is currently writing a book on her native Cuba and the story of her grandfather who was murdered there in 1948.
Peter Bowen, WLS AM 890 General Manager and Vice President/Market Manager for Cumulus Media-Chicago, said: “Bob Sirott and Marianne Murciano are deeply rooted in Chicago and are well known to the community. With their addition, WLS is more local and more relevant to Chicago listeners and advertisers.”
Peter Bolger, WLS AM 890 Program Director and Operations Manager, said: “Bob and Marianne are simply great local storytellers who will inform and entertain Chicago radio listeners and keep mornings on WLS fresh, fun and always interesting, with more than a few surprises.”
Sirott said: “Generations of Chicagoans, like me and listeners all over the Midwest and beyond, grew up with WLS. That makes hosting a show on this station very special.”
Murciano said: “I look forward to talking about the news of the day, the trending topics, and even the marital disputes I have with Bob! It’s going to be fun.”
Concurrently, WLS will launch its new weekday programming line-up for 2017, with the following new airtimes:

Dogs put their lives on the line every day – for their law enforcement partner, for their blind companion, for the disabled, for our freedom and safety by detecting bombs and drugs and pulling victims of tragedy from wreckage.
