Charlie Meyerson from Rivet News Radio Interviews 1871 CEO Howard Tullman


Charlie joined HearHere Radio in June 2013 to help reinvent radio news for the smartphone era. Charlie’s (unsuccessful) fall 2012 Knight News Challenge proposal for a “Smartphone News Network” provided a template for development of Rivet News Radio content.

Charlie brings HearHere Radio decades of experience as an award-winning journalist — including tours of duty at Chicago’s pioneering rock station WXRT-FM, the Chicago Tribune and WGN-AM, where, as news director, he led his team to awards for best newscast and outstanding news operation. At alternative all-news FM News 101.1, he served as Chicago bureau chief, helping the station win awards for coverage of the sentencing of ex-Gov. Rod Blagojevich.

Charlie also teaches news reporting at Roosevelt University; contributes occasionally to Crain’s Chicago Business, WXRT and WBEZ-FM; and consults widely in content strategy.

Charlie has a B.S. and M.S. in journalism from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. He’s a member of the Illini Media Alumni Hall of Fame and considers himself inventor of the drop-slap method of throwing a Frisbee.
