As part of a "multiplatform transformation" of its news brands nationwide, Audacy is putting more eggs in the digital news basket of WBBM 780-AM/WCFS 105.9-FM.

Lauren Hill, who was a content editor and digital producer at the Chicago Tribune before she left with a buyout last month, has been hired as digital managing editor at the all-news station.


Hill starts today in the newly created position.

The journalism graduate of the University of Missouri-Columbia joined the Tribune in 2014 and most recently was entertainment content editor.

In an email to staffers, Gleason said additional hiring in the coming weeks will include a content producer, two social media and community editors, a managing editor of podcasts and multimedia, and two other podcast producers.
