Guest Biography

Award-winning journalist and veteran broadcaster, Dolly McCarthy, is the creator, producer & host of The Dolly McCarthy Show. The radio show is celebrating its fifth year on the air, and can now be heard on WCKG 1530 AM in Chicago, Blog Talk Radio Network, 1010 News Talk, Touhyville Radio Network and Rivet Radio in Chicago.  Dolly is also a News & Traffic Reporter for WGN 720 AM, WBEZ 91.5 FM, WCKG 1530 AM, and WCPT 820 AM in Chicago. Prior to that, Dolly was an anchor for the Tribune Company’s CLTV News and Anchor/Reporter for WTVO Channel 17 as well as WQRF Fox 39 in Rockford. Dolly also worked for 6 years as the solo anchor for NCTV17‘s popular and award-winning news program, Naperville News 17. It was there where Dolly became an instant favorite and trusted journalist in Chicagoland. She began her career at WCIU Chicago where Dolly anchored, produced and wrote for the station’s daily 7-hour business news program, The Stock Market Observer.

The Chicago native has nearly 20 years of broadcast experience in radio, TV and cable. Her experience in reporting and anchoring, combined with her strong roots in Chicago (she was born & raised a northwest sider; one of 14 kids) and Naperville have made her one of the area’s most well-liked and sought after media personalities. Naperville even proclaimed a day in her honor: March 21, Dolly McCarthy Day.  In true Dolly fashion, she turned that day into a day of giving back. A charity fundraiser was held to raise funds to support not-for-profits: Operation Support Our Troops, Naperville Cares, Kidz Kabaret and Bike Bald. Dolly has received numerous awards and recognition. She was recognized by her high school, Mother Guerin, as 2014’s Most Distinguished Alum, and honored as Woman of The Year by the AAUW in 2013.

Dolly is actively involved in many charitable organizations and not-for-profits including DuPage P.A.D.S., The Rotary Club, CASA Kane County, Tri City Family Services, Blessings in a Backpack, Operation Support Our Troops America, the West Suburban Irish, Community Career Center and Naper Settlement.

Dolly graduated from Northern Illinois University with a B.A. in Broadcast Journalism; and an A.A. with Honors from Wilbur Wright College in Chicago.  She is a proud mom to five children: Jimmy, Shelley, Rachel, Caitlin & Molly.
