Craig Dellimore

Mid-Day from City Hall, 9-5

Craig Dellimore is the Political Editor for Newsradio WBBM, a post he has held since 2001.

Craig joined the station in 1983 after working for several years with the Associated Press Radio Network in Washington D.C.

During his time at WBBM, Craig has performed a variety of jobs, including anchor, managing editor, legislative correspondent and suburban bureau chief.

Craig has covered several national political conventions for WBBM.  He said 2008 proved to be one of the most historic political years he has ever experienced. However, some of Craig’s most memorable stories have included assignments outside of the political realm. He covered the tragedy of the 1994 crash of American Eagle Flight 4184 in Roselawn, Indiana. He reported on the resilience of farmers and other Illinois residents along the Mississippi as they recovered from widespread flooding. And, over nearly two years, he periodically reported on a west suburban woman as she waited and waited for a lung transplant—and eventually received it.

Craig has won awards for his work from the Illinois Associated Press, the Chicago Society of Professional Journalists and more.
