About Me

Three-time Emmy Award winning media professional with more than 13 years of television/video producing, writing and editing experience, plus eight years of radio producing, promotions and national live hosting experience. Recently made the transition into film/television production as a set decoration buyer.

Bio:

Cathy Vlahogiannis has been recognized by the National Academy of Arts and Sciences with three Emmy® Awards and 17 nominations.

Her 10 years at WLS-TV (ABC 7) saw her produce, write, and edit '190 North', the longest-running weekly entertainment/lifestyle show in Chicago broadcast history. She developed, produced and edited two programs for ABC's national Live Well Network, 'Let's Dish' (a cooking show) and 'Here's How Right Now' (a home improvement series). And, she produced various travel, public affairs and live specials, including ABC 7's highest-rated annual live broadcast, 'Countdown Chicago'.

Cathy began her broadcasting career in radio marketing and promotions in 1999, first at WKIE-FM (92KissFM), then at WKQX-FM (Q101). She then spent three years co-hosting and producing the daily, nationally syndicated radio talk show, 'Mancow's Morning Madhouse', on Q101. Cathy joined Mancow once again on WLUP-FM (97.9 The Loop) from 2015-2018 as his co-host, producer and traffic reporter. It was during her time at 97.9 The Loop that Cathy had the opportunity to be seen on screen, most notably in Director Eli Roth's modern-day reimagining of the 1974 classic film, 'Death Wish'.

Recently, Cathy made the transition into film/television production. She assisted the Creator/Showrunner and Executive Producers/Writers of NBC's 'Chicago Fire'. She also worked as Production Assistant on all the Chicago-based Dick Wolf shows ('Chicago Fire', 'Chicago P.D.', and 'Chicago Med').

Currently, Cathy is a Set Decoration Buyer. She has worked on several productions, including NBC's 'Chicago Fire', and the Twentieth Century Fox pilot, 'Ordinary Joe'.

Cathy is a union member of both SAG-AFTRA and IATSE Studio Mechanics Local 476. She is a graduate of Columbia College Chicago, where she majored in television broadcasting, and she studied film at Chicago Filmmakers and The Second City.

A native Chicagoan, and a first-generation Greek-American, Cathy is also fluent in the Greek language.
