 Bob Sirott & Marianne Murciano Biography

Bob Sirott and Marianne Murciano are no strangers to working as partners.

Most recently, the husband and wife duo hosted their popular Sirott and Murciano radio program on WGN AM 720 and Chicago’s legendary WLS AM 890, where Bob began his radio career as a top DJ in the 70s. With a longtime fan-base on the air and now on social media, they are fixtures on the Chicago media landscape. They co-anchored Fox Thing in the Morning on WFLD-TV in Chicago from 1994 to 2000. They’re true veterans of TV and radio with successful careers in broadcasting and communications. Their new website, SusosFork.com, combines their personalities and passion for food and travel. Their fans follow their adventures on YouTube.

Sirott has earned 14 local Emmys as well as a national Emmy. He began his broadcasting career as an NBC page in 1966, moving up to become public affairs and production director for WMAQ Radio in Chicago (then NBC) at the age of 19. After receiving his Bachelor of Arts degree from Columbia College, he began his on-air work at WBBM-FM in 1971, where Sirott became morning personality for the CBS station's new contemporary music format. In 1980, he left Chicago's iconic rock radio station WLS, where he was the number one afternoon drive personality for seven years, to become the first Lifestyle and Entertainment Editor at WBBM-TV (CBS). In 1985, Sirott was named anchor/correspondent for the CBS-TV network newsmagazine series West 57th, winning a national Emmy for feature reporting. Sirott then joined NBC5 in Chicago as the noon anchor and 10:00 p.m. feature reporter before launching and anchoring First Thing in the Morning. From there, he developed and hosted the Emmy Award-winning Fox Thing in the Morning on WFLD. In 2002 Sirott became the anchor and managing editor of Chicago Tonight, the nightly live one-hour newsmagazine of Chicago’s PBS station, WTTW/11. Bob has also been a contributor to CBS News Sunday Morning appearing on feature stories and essays. For the better part of the last decade he has anchored prime time newscasts and election night roundtable panels for Fox Chicago News and NBC 5. Sirott hosts Legends, an ongoing series of 90-minute video interviews with baseball greats for the Chicago Cubs. Sun-Times columnist Richard Roeper wrote, “As someone who has been interviewed by everyone, I can tell you that Bob Sirott is one of the best interviewers on TV locally or nationally.”

Marianne Murciano is an Emmy award winning writer, journalist and TV personality. She has trained corporate executives as senior consultant for the global media relations company Hill & Knowlton. Born in Havana, Cuba, she is fluent in Spanish. She’s a graduate of Florida International University with a degree in communications/broadcast journalism and earned a Master’s degree in fiction writing at Columbia College Chicago. Murciano got her start in broadcasting in 1979 in Miami as a reporter for WNWS all-news radio and began working as a reporter for WCIX TV in 1980. She created, wrote and produced educational programming at WLRN TV. From there she moved to Fox’s WSVN-TV as a reporter and was soon named anchor of the 2-hour morning newscast, Today in Florida. In 1990 she moved to NBC anchoring the number one rated morning show for WTVJ-TV, Today in South Florida. Three years later WFLD, Fox-TV in Chicago, hired her to co-anchor the morning newscast. Marianne was a contributor to WTTW/PBS Chicago Tonight on the series “At Home With…” featuring interviews from the homes of well-known personalities. She’s currently working on her first major nonfiction book examining the life of her grandfather, Cuba’s national sports director, who was murdered in Havana in 1948.

  • How Getting Fired From Chicago TV and Radio Stations Turned Our Lives Upside Down and Became The Best Thing That Ever Happened When We Figured Out The Job Does Not Matter.

    Getting fired is a way of life in our business. You can’t avoid it. How do you pick yourself up again? How do you mentally adjust to not being famous anymore for what you were doing? How do you mentally, emotionally and financially survive and move on? It’s not about what you change on the outside. We’ve gone from traditional TV and radio jobs to entering the new world of social media. We’ve started a Latin food website as well as a popular Facebook fan page and Youtube channel. But none of that satisfies the way the big job used to. That’s why we have gone inside to find out how to create our own good luck. How to redefine our definition of success. Working smarter, not harder, comes from quieting down all the the exterior noise and train to listen to yourself.

  • Working with your spouse

    There are pros and cons! Marianne and I met when we worked together on “Fox Thing in The Morning” in the 90’s on Fox 32. Since then we have co-hosted many radio programs together.

  • Behind the scenes

    We have years of stories about celebrities we’ve interviewed—some were good people some bad, and insights into how TV newsrooms operate-how they decide which stories to cover, and how radio stations decide their formats.

  • Cuba Today

    Marianne was born in Cuba and is an outspoken critic of the way the government there has treated citizens then and now.

  • Food and Travel

    We’ve both traveled extensively tasting dishes for our susosfork.com web site. We also feature many Chicago restaurants on our radio shows and love to talk about our favorite places.
