Abstract:

Radio news anchor and production company chief executive Felicia Middlebrooks was born May 29, 1957 in Gary, Indiana. For seven years she worked as a steelworker and a radio station employee to finance her B.A. degree in mass communications at Purdue University. Joining WBBM radio full time in 1983, she co-hosted its Morning Drive program for eighteen years. Middlebrooks, the first woman and first African American to co-anchor the program, was part of the team that ended WGN's thirty-year streak as Chicago's top-rated morning station. Middlebrooks was CEO of Saltshaker Productions and regularly appeared on Total Living Network. A longtime mentor to aspiring journalists, Middlebrooks held leadership positions at WINGS, a nonprofit organization that assists victims of domestic violence and the Children's Home and Aid Society. She accepted a teaching position at Purdue University's Calumet campus and completed her first novel.
