Marti Jones was born and raised in Chicago. A graduate of Columbia College, she pursued her radio career with a start at a jazz station in Toledo, Ohio. She wanted to get back home to her Chicago family, friends and food. She's spent the last 13 years as a traffic reporter, including working with John Landecker and Greg Brown on 94.7 WLS-FM. Marti got a taste of TV when she worked on a Food Network special called "Scoop," an ice cream contest, where she created a cannoli flavored ice cream. Her heart has always been in radio; she presently does mornings on 94.7FM WLS, and you can hear her Mon-Fri 5:30-9am.
