Lisa Fielding is a news anchor and reporter for Newsradio 780. She brings nearly three decades of news and sports, radio and television broadcasting experience to WBBM. A graduate of Bradley University and an award-winning journalist, Lisa began her career as an intern and reporter for WEEK-TV in Peoria, then moved on to work for WROK-WZOK radio and as weekend anchor for WIFR-TV in Rockford. At the same time, she did some fill-in work as one of the first female voices on Chicago’s new all-sports station “The Score”.

In 1999, she moved to Madison to be the main anchor for Fox 47 News at Nine where she was able to travel to the Rose Bowl and to the Final Four with the Wisconsin Badgers. Before coming to WBBM, she most recently served as main anchor of WVTV-WB 18 News at Nine in Milwaukee. She also spent seven years in minor league baseball as one of the few female public address announcers in the country and even was a contender to succeed Wayne Messmer as the public address announcer for the Chicago Cubs.

In addition to her duties as anchor and reporter at WBBM, she is an instructor for the Chicago Broadcast class at the prestigious Medill School of Journalism at Northwestern University.
