Matt Bubala’s love for radio started in college. Shortly after his graduation from Saint Mary’s in 1994, Bubala started a career in radio. Bubala’s name is recognizable to many longtime WGN-AM fans in Chicago. For 10 years (1997-2007), he was a producer at WGN Radio, most famously for John Williams’ popular show, where he was often heard on the air. Prior to his time in Chicago radio, he was a producer at a radio station in Los Angeles, and again in Detroit. There he worked with former Chicago radio star Danny Bonaduce. After leaving “The John Williams Show” and WGN-AM in 2007, he formed Black Dog Radio Productions, Inc., an independent Chicago-based radio syndication company that creates and distributes quality niche radio programming. He serves as president of the company, which syndicates three radio shows including “Good Parenting Radio,” which is hosted by Bubala himself. As a father of four (including triplets), Bubala knows a bit about parenting. He currently can be heard on WGN-AM’s aptly named “The Matt Bubala Show.”
