Scott Childers was born and raised in Chicago, and has had the opportunity to work at several different radio and television stations around town. He began at WJTW-FM in Joliet in 1989, and then spent seven years providing news, traffic and weather reports for Metro Networks. His station list included WBBM-AM, WMAQ-AM, WBBM-FM, WLS-AM and WGN-AM, as well as numerous suburban radio stations. Scott was also one of the first television traffic reporters in Chicago, beginning with NBC-5's "First Thing In The Morning" featuring Bob Sirott and Allison Rosati in the early 1990's. He went on to work with Sirott again, along with Marianne Murciano for four years on Fox-32's "Fox Thing in The Morning." While reporting traffic, he also worked at several radio stations as a part-time air personality including WWBZ-FM (The Blaze!), WXLC-FM (Hot 102.3), WTMX-FM (The Mix) and WPNT-FM(FM-100)/WNND-FM (Windy 100). He is currently afternoon on-air host and Program Director at WSSR-FM, "Star 96.7"

A licensed Radio Amateur since 1978, Scott was net control for several years on the popular "CSRA-1" Information Net which aired on several Chicago VHF & UHF repeaters in the 1980's. In 2002, his original callsign WD9FXP was retired for W9CHI, which in addition to standing for the first 3 letters of his last name, "CHI" seemed synonymous for CHIcago, the Windy City!

In addition the on-the-air interests, Scott enjoys web site design. One of his biggest projects was "The History Of WLS Radio" website which chronicles the 75+ years of this legendary midwestern powerhouse. It can be accessed at www.wlshistory.com Scott authored the book "WLS Radio Chicago," a 228 page illustrated history of the legendary station.

A die-hard Chicago Cubs fan, he hopes the men in blue will win a World Series sometime in his lifetime!

Scott is newsletter editor and former President of The CHICAGO SUBURBAN RADIO ASSOCIATION which can be reached at www.CSRAham.com. Visit Scott at his official website, wwwScottChilders.com, or like him on Facebook here.
