ABC Radio announced today an extension of their ABC News affiliation agreement with Tribune/WGN Radio to include an expansion of shared editorial resources in the Chicago market. In conjunction with this announcement, WGN Radio’s Ryan Burrow will be a contributor to ABC News Radio and report from Chicago and around the country.
“Ryan Burrow is a talented award-winning reporter who understands how to tell stories that capture an audience’s interest,” said Steve Jones, Vice President and General Manager of ABC News Radio. “Through ABC News Radio’s expanded partnership with Tribune Media’s WGN Radio Chicago, Ryan will cover stories of interest to our national audience from across the Midwest region and around the country.”

A native of Chicago, Burrow received his undergraduate degree at Valparaiso University in 2002 and his master’s in Journalism from DePaul University in 2013.
