| No Comments

Roxanne Steele is returning to Chicago radio after an absence of nearly 18 months. On Oct. 6, she will start hosting afternoon drive at adult contemporary WCFS-FM (105.9) from 3 p.m. to 8 p.m. Steele previously spent 12 years on air in afternoon drive at WBBM-FM (96.3). Both stations are CBS Radio outlets. While at WBBM, Steele became the first female ever to host afternoon drive, and she subsequently garnered several awards, including best local station personality at the Illinois Silver Dome Awards in 2002.

About her new post, Steele said: "I am so excited to connect again with all the people who listened to me over the years." Recently-arrived WCFS Program Director Bill Gamble said of Steele: "Roxanne brings a combination of energy, talent and experience that are unmatched in this market." WCFS made its debut on Nov. 5, 2007.
