WGN Radio Morning Drive Host Bob Sirott To Receive 2022 Dante Award

The Joint Civic Committee of Italian Americans to honor Sirott with award on May 26

CHICAGO (May 25, 2022) – WGN Radio morning drive host and broadcast television and radio legend Bob Sirott will receive the Dante Award from the Joint Civic Committee of Italian Americans (JCCIA) at a luncheon on Thursday, May 26.

Since its inception in 1971, more than 40 Chicago journalists have received the Dante Award, which recognizes media professionals who pursue truth in their work.

“Looking at the long, impressive list of previous Dante Award winners, it makes me realize that the highly respected selection committee who decides who gets this award realized they had given this to every media person in Chicago except me. They simply ran out of names,” said Bob Sirott.
