Christina Filiaggi


Now, not many people can say they got their start in radio at Hooters... but, in the summer of 1993, Christina played hooky from her nine-to-five job to attend a remote broadcast of "The Steve Dahl & Garry Meier Show," which was at a Hooters. Soon after, Steve Dahl gave Christina her first industry job as his office manager. After learning the ropes, Christina began to work for WLUP as a producer for "The Steve Dahl Show" and she continued on as a producer for Steve’s later shows on WMVP and WCKG. Eventually, Christina began to host the "Best of" shows -- and she was hooked!

In 1996, Christina was hired by Shadow Broadcast Services as a traffic reporter. Ironically, she started out working for WLS-AM radio on the overnight shift. Over the years you have heard Christina on over 20 Chicago area stations, including WLS, WBBM, WUSN, WCKG, WJMK, WSCR and WIND and she has also reported traffic on television for NBC5. Christina can be heard once again in the afternoons from 2:00 to 6:00 p.m. on "The Roe Conn Show with Richard Roeper" along with Jim Johnson.

Christina received her Bachelor of Arts in English from Illinois Wesleyan University and graduated with honors. She grew up in Glen Ellyn, Illinois and is a 1986 alum of Glenbard West High School. Go Hilltoppers!
