Mornings with Dave and Kim

Weekdays, 5 - 10am

About Kim Berk

Kim teams up with Dave Fogel on 94.7 WLS!

Kim was born in NYC but spent much of her childhood here in Chicago hanging with her cousins and pressing her nose against the glass of the giant dollhouse (which she still wants to live in) at the Museum of Science and Industry, riding rides at Old Chicago and drooling over Ryne Sandberg at Wrigley...long before the lights.

Not enough? Here’s more...

Favorite word – Unconditional
Least favorite word – Can’t
Favorite Chicago memory – Watching my grandfather make Coca-Cola from scratch at his house in Ravenswood then taking the train into the city and feeling like a big girl as we went to Marshal Fields all dressed up for lunch.
Lou’s or Gino’s – Lou Malnati’s!! I mail my friends all over the country frozen pizzas as gifts.
College – Indiana University. Go Hoosiers!!
TV – Big Bang Theory, Game of Thrones, Westworld and anything on Investigation Discovery (I have a disturbing knowledge of serial killers)
Favorite Hobby – Krav Maga – Israeli hand-to-hand combat. I’m small but I’m mighty. And I have a heavy bag in my living room!
Most annoying trait – Very picky eater. Though I’m sure my partner Dave keeps a running list of my annoying traits. So...see him.
Dogs or cats – Dogs! I love my dogs more than I like most people.
Thing I don’t do that everyone else does – Drive! I walk, Lyft or Red Line pretty much everywhere.
Near future - Working on becoming a foster mom! So exciting and terrifying all at the same time. But isn’t that every new parent?
The thing I would tell my younger self – It’s not about you.

Quote that sums me up...

"Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, wine in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming "WOO HOO what a ride!"
