We have some outstanding journalists here at Daily News Chicago, and we’re happy to tell you a little about them!
Abbie is our Senior Editor; she keeps us on our toes and demands our best efforts. She has a Master’s in Journalism and has been a Chicagoland resident for about 20 years. When she doesn’t have her nose buried in a story, she’s hanging out with her family in the great outdoors.
Lonny Benson hasn’t been a journalist for long, but he’s on the ball and has a nose for news! An “Army brat”, he grew up all over and is now proud to call Chicago home. You’ll also note that he’s an avid sports fan. He begged to cover Sports, so you’ll often see his articles in that section.
Marita comes to us from an advertising background, and her unique perspective and writing style is an asset when covering Local and Business news for the Daily News Chicago publication. She enjoys music and karaoke.
