Julie Mann named WBBM-AM managing editor

| No Comments

All-news WBBM-AM (780) has a new managing editor Julie Mann. She takes over the responsibilities formerly handled by Drew Hayes, who left the station last month to become operations director at news/talk WLS-AM (890). Mann has been WBBM's suburban bureau chief since 2002. She first joined the station in 1997. WBBM program director Ron Gleason said Mann, among other things, will handle story assignments for the station's stable of reporters and various other managerial responsibilities tied to WBBM's day-to-day operations. Meanwhile, Gleason said WBBM is still perhaps a couple of months away from selecting a new permanent morning drive co-anchor to pair with Felicia Middlebrooks.
