About Alex Quigley

Alex Quigley is best-known in Chicago for his tours of duty at WKQX-FM (Q101). He was hired in 2000, left in 2002, came back in 2004, was fired and hired in 2008, then fired again in 2009. He currently hosts "ChicagoNow Radio" Saturday mornings on WGN Radio 720 alongside Amy Guth.

He was born in Kankakee, briefly lived in Elgin, and was raised far-western-suburban Belvidere. He earned his broadcast journalism degree at the University of Illinois. While there he got his start in radio at WPGU-FM, doing evenings and serving as program director. He also served for three years as a student coach for the Fighting Illini football squad, handling kickers, punters, and long snappers.

He also launched a rock station in Bakersfield, California in 2002. He was fired there, too. Alex refers to those years as "really fun and really tan".

He is "that guy" who makes the playoffs every year in your fantasy football league.

He now resides in far-northern-suburban Round Lake Beach, with his fiance Heather and 3-year-old daughter Samantha. He is available for parties, weddings, and conventions--in case Bruce Wolf isn't available.
