WGN Radio announced that Lauren Lapka will join the station as the afternoon drive traffic reporter starting Thursday, March 14. Lapka will be heard on The John Williams Show starting at 1pm and The Roe Conn Show with Anna Davlantes from 3pm - 7pm.

In addition to reporting live traffic on WGN Radio, Lapka will host the Weekend Warnings video series on wgnradio.com and cover transportation stories for WGN Radio News.
