CBS 2 sportscaster Megan Mawicke seems to be doing alright for herself. Of course, she's originally from an upscale town in the North Shore, so it's safe to assume the Indiana University graduate started out in life doing pretty well. Not saying I know either way, just that one could assume. Mawicke also earned her Master's in journalism from thew prestigious Medill graduate school at Northwestern.
According to the "Elite Street" feature in the Chicago Tribune, Mawicke:
paid more than $1.2 million for a newly built, 4,200-square-foot house on the North Side.
Mawicke, 39, a Kenilworth native who joined CBS-2 in 2004, had owned a two-bedroom loft condominium unit in River North that she bought in 2004 for $400,000. She sold the five-room, 1,650-square-foot unit in late 2010 for $435,000.
Mawicke declined to comment.
