Kim Berk teams up with Dave Fogel mornings on WLS-FM Chicago!
Kim began her radio career in Cincinnati and had spent several years hosting middays at WLIR/New York City and in childhood lived in the Chicago suburb of Arlington Heights.
"I lived in Arlington Heights (a suburb) as a kid. My cousin was a fireman and paramedic in Libertyville which we thought was the coolest thing. We had a scanner in our house to listen for calls. As a child I grew up going to Old Chicago which was an indoor amusement park…it's not there anymore but we always loved going to the part of the city that's under the actual city. Made my parents got to the Museum of Science & Industry, which is in Chicago, at least once a month. I was obsessed with with the giant dollhouse (made me start collecting miniatures. There's a great store either in Buffalo Grove or Long Grove we shopped at) and the coal mine ride. As a teen I would go with mom to see the Cubs (a baseball team). Was a huge fan. Big crush on Ryne Sandberg ( had his posters in my wall ). This was before the lights when the places in Wrigleyville all had 'no lights!" signs in their window. When I was drinking age we would to go to The Cubby Bear and Sluggers after the game which has a batting cage upstairs. And of course Navy Pier (in Chicago) which had a cool bar with fish tanks. Not sure if it's there anymore. Still have Lou Malnati's shipped to my house. Best deep dish pizza. We used to go to the original Lou's…it was my stepmom' fave and she worked at the exchange on the floor under the trading name YUMM. My sister still lives there as do a bunch of my aunts and cousins.
