Chicago Public Radio WBEZ-FM (91.5) has opened its fourth community bureau at 2913 W. Devon Avenue in the Rogers Park neighborhood under the direction of newly-named north side bureau reporter Odette Yousef. With the addition of the Rogers Park bureau, WBEZ will now operate four community bureaus in Chicago and northwest Indiana. Yousef, 28, has devoted her professional career to public radio. She joins WBEZ following three years as a general assignment reporter at WABE-FM (90.1) in Atlanta. Focusing on health, education and city government, Yousef produced both daily spots and feature length stories and reported an award-winning series on systemic flaws in the Fulton County 911 Communications Center. WBEZ established the first of its community bureaus in Homboldt Park in 2007, and has sense added Englewood; Chesterton, Ind., and now Rogers Park.
