Turi Ryder grew up listening to Chicago radio in the northern suburbs. Her broadcasting heroes were the folks she heard, when she was supposed to be sleeping, on the radio she kept stashed beneath her pillow.
Turi’s professional life began at Highland Parks WVVX, where she also emptied the trash cans. Many Chicago listeners heard Turi for the first time late at night on WLS AM. She eventually switched to talk radio, and has been a program host on KFI Los Angeles, KIRO Seattle, KSTP Minneapolis, and WLS among others.
For the past three years, Turi has created and presented the nationally syndicated editorial humor features, “Turi Ryders Exception to the Rule” for CBS Radio. Turi owns and runs Shebops Productions, and is wrapping up her first book, “Half Off”.
