By Mary Dixon

Mary Dixon is news anchor and co-host of the XRT Morning Show, 5:30 – 10 a.m. Monday through Friday.

Here’s what she likes: Wilco, Jane Austen, white legal pads, Hogwarts, Radiohead, The Rolling Stones, ‘Veep’, Scotch, The Second City, Monty Python, and a good ratchet screwdriver.

Here’s what she doesn’t like: dishonesty, clutter and weak cocktails.

She was born in Chicago and grew up in Dixon, Illinois (not a coincidence), where she started working in radio as high school senior. She earned journalism degrees from Northern Illinois University and the University of Illinois-Springfield. As a reporter, she won Associated Press and Lisagor honors for investigative, business and features stories. She’s been part of the XRT Morning Show, on and off, for 22 years. In the off years, she was reporting for CNN and WGN-TV or having babies – all ventures involving high stress, unusual hours and many joys.
