Welcome back, Bill Cameron!

Wonderful news: WLS-AM has rehired Bill Cameron as City Hall beat reporter, just three months after the Citadel-owned station let him go during an avalanche of staff cuts that affected Citadel stations nationwide.

An opening became available after Ryan Hermes resigned after being able to obtain an early release from his WLS contract. He has re-joined the Illinois Radio Network.

Cameron was the City Hall beat reporter for several Chicago radio stations for three decades. He’s been at WLS since 2000.

It’s not every day a radio station owns up to its mistakes. Thank goodness WLS and Citadel did in the case of Bill Cameron.
