Terri Hemmert has been at WXRT for over 30 years. Starting as overnight announcer and Public Affairs Director in 1973, Terri became the first female morning drive personality in Chicago in 1981. In 1992, Terri moved to the 9AM to noon time-slot, and in 2002 became host of Breakfast with The Beatles, 8 to 10AM on Sundays. [Read Terri's Full Bio]

Let’s See Action: With schools cutting arts programs, it’s time to move from feeling helpless to stepping up as the adults in the room to make opportunities for the next generations. I’ve always known XRT listeners to be generous with their time, talent and treasure. Please join me in this effort to make a difference. This is a call to action. [Get Involved]
