WGN-AM/Chicago Radio anchor and reporter Andrea Darlas will receive the Diogenes Award for Excellence in Media from the Better Business Bureau serving Chicago and Northern Illinois (BBB) at the organization's 90th Anniversary Dinner Meeting on Thursday, March 24. Darlas is currently the morning news anchor on WGN Radio, a reporter on WGN-TV and CLTV as well as a contributor to the nationally-syndicated TV show "House Smarts."

"The Diogenes Award is presented to a media person who exemplifies the goals and principles of the Better Business Bureau to support and foster an ethical marketplace benefiting both consumers and businesses," said BBB President/CEO Steve J. Bernas.

"Andrea was born to chase compelling stories," added WGN VP/Programming & Content Todd Manley. "She's a passionate journalist and a trusted voice in Chicago. We're so proud of her work and this great honor."

Congrats to Andrea, a fellow University of Illinois alum.
