Felicia Middlebrooks

Felicia Middlebrooks, anchor at Entercom news WBBM Chicago (780), is leaving the station at the end of the month after a 36-year run.

“On May 29th, I’m dropping the mic, at least for daily radio news,” Middlebrook posted to Facebook. “I’m not retiring. I’m rewiring. I’m transitioning to long form storytelling on a multi-media platform, which will include documentaries and feature films, audiobooks and other projects, through my company Saltshaker Productions.”

Middlebrook says her first venture is the podcast “She Matters,” which focuses on empowering women.
