Just in time to cover the NFL draft Thursday, Glenview native Courtney Cronin has signed on with WMVP 1000-AM, the Good Karma Brands ESPN sports/talk station.

She'll serve as Chicago Bears reporter and on-air fill-in host during the NFL offseason.


Cronin, who had been reporting on the Minnesota Vikings for ESPN since 2017, came home earlier this year to cover the Chicago Bears for the network. At ESPN 1000 she succeeds her mentor and friend, Jeff Dickerson, who died of cancer in December.

"We are thrilled to welcome Courtney to our ESPN Chicago family," said Danny Zederman, director of content at ESPN 1000. "She is well connected in NFL circles and will bring our fans the Bears information they desire. In addition to her reporting, our fans are going to enjoy what Courtney has to offer as a radio host, where she'll talk all things Chicago sports."

Cronin graduated from north suburban Glenbrook South High School and Indiana University.
