Bob Sirott Journalism Career

Sirott started his career in 1971 in radio as a summer vacation fill-in disc jockey for WBBM-FM before moving to WLS (AM) in 1973. From 1973 until December 1979, he was a top disc jockey at WLS. Sirott shifted to television in 1980, taking a job at WBBM-TV. After five years at WBBM, he took a job with the CBS newsmagazine West 57th, although the network allowed him to remain based in Chicago.

In 1988, Sirott left West 57th, telling the Chicago Sun-Times in an article that ran on December 22, 1987: “If (‘West 57th’) were more of a personality-oriented show, and if I had the opportunity to do some live things, I’d be able to withstand it longer. But it’s just been too difficult for me to work in this system with 25 different producers and not have hands-on control over my own pieces.”

Sirott returned to Chicago’s airwaves at WMAQ-TV in March 1989, as a noon news anchor and program host; the following year, he launched and was the co-anchor of WMAQ-TV’s “First Thing in the Morning” together with Allison Rosati. After four years at WMAQ, he was fired in July 1993—for the first time in his career—after he and management had a difference of opinion over his and his show’s autonomy.

Bob Sirott WFLD

Sirott returned to work in March 1994, anchoring “Fox Thing in the Morning” on Chicago’s FOX affiliate WFLD with his future wife Marianne Murciano, until she was moved to another time slot at the station in June 2000. It was ranked high in the Nielsen ratings and fans were taken aback when they learned that the show was unceremoniously cancelled and renamed “Fox News in the Morning.” Sirott was bounced on September 27, 2000, as the station’s host—concurrent with the show’s renaming.

News reports had stated that he didn’t want to work with new anchor, Tamron Hall, who had replaced his wife, but Sirott downplayed those rumors in a Chicago Sun-Times article on September 28, 2000. “It’s not about Tamron,” Sirott told the paper. “It’s about changes in the focus and direction of the show.”

He was removed as co-host with 2½ years remaining on his contract and he was nominally kept on WFLD’s payroll to develop new programming for Fox stations and the company’s syndication division. Sirott rejoined WFLD on July 19, 2010, as co-anchor of the 9 p.m. news togethre with Robin Robinson. He remained in that role until 2013, when his contract expired.

Bob Sirott WTTW

Sirott hosted “Chicago Tonight” on the Chicago PBS station WTTW from June 2002 to December 2005. At WTTW Sirott also hosted the “Friday Night Show.” In 2005, his contract was not renewed because of cost cutting. Sirott rejoined WMAQ in early 2006, as a weekend anchor joining Anna Davlantes on the weekend 5 and 10 PM broadcasts. He at one time co-anchored the 4:30 PM newscast alongside Marion Brooks.

Sirott also co-anchored the 5:00, 6:00 and 10:00 PM newscasts (briefly succeeding the now-retired Warner Saunders in this capacity) with Allison Rosati. However, on June 11, 2009, he left WMAQ-TV after he and the station were unable to come to financial terms in the wake of Saunders’ departure.

Chicago radio station WGN announced on April 12, 2007, that it was reviving The Noon Show with Sirott as its host. On January 25, 2010, Sirott was removed from The Noon Show. He returned to weekday radio at WGN in 2013. Sirott is also known for his “One more thing” commentaries on various topics, many of which are Chicago related.

Sirott was seen in cameo appearances as a reporter on the FOX Dramas Prison Break during its first season and The Chicago Code. He made his debut as a reporter for The Onion News Network in July 2014 with the story “Deadly Super Rainbow Tears Through West Coast”.
