Chicago Radio: WLS-AM Promotes Bret Gogoel to Exec Producer

Bret Gogoel
CUMULUS MEDIA announces that it has appointed Bret Gogoel as Executive Producer of The John Howell Show on Chicago News/Talk radio station WLS 890 AM. 

Gogoel steps up to fill the role vacated by Mallory Vor Broker, who is now on-air reporter for 890 WLS-AM, covering Chicago City Hall and the political beat for 890 WLS-AM following the retirement of Bill Cameron. The John Howell Show breaks down the news of the day through a Chicago lens with local tastemakers and newsmakers, and airs live on WLS-AM weekdays from 4pm–7pm. 

Gogoel has been a technical producer, fill-in producer and podcast manager for WLS-AM 890 since 2017 and was former play-by-play announcer for the Windy City Bulls basketball team. He holds a BBA degree in Finance from the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater.

Stephanie Tichenor, Program Director, 890 WLS-AM, said: “I am delighted to announce that Bret Gogoel will be the new executive producer of The John Howell Show. Bret has worked for Cumulus for over four years and during his tenure has worn many hats including producing the Chicago Bulls, Chicago White Sox, the PoPo Report, the Trip Sisters and more. Bret has also been an integral ‘pinch-hitter’ producer who has regularly filled in to produce drive time programs. He is the perfect fit for our afternoon drive team.” 

Bret Gogoel commented: "I couldn't be more excited to step into the big shoes left by Mallory and work with a consummate professional like John Howell. I hope to take everything I've learned from my time here at WLS and continue to put out a top-notch product."
