Sybil Wilkes

Sybil  has  long  been  considered  “the  voice  of  reason”  on  the Tom Joyner Morning  show  adding  intelligent,  smart,  honest,  dependable news  and  information  all  with  a great sense  of  humor.      

A  native  Chicagoan,  Sybil  began  her  radio  career  in  as  a  production  assistant  with  WKQX-FM,  Chicago.  She  eventually  went  on  to news  management  and  reporting  jobs at  WINK-AM/FM,  Fort  Myers,  Florida;  WRCC-FM,  Cape  Coral,  Florida;  and  WCKZ-FM,  Charlotte, North  Carolina,  eventually  joining  WGCI-AM/FM,  Chicago,  as  a  talk  show host.  Sybil  became  a  reporter  for  Chicago's  Shadow  Traffic Network.  While  with  Shadow,  she delivered  morning  and  afternoon  drive  traffic  updates  and  worked  as  one  of Tom  Joyner's  WGCI-FM sidekicks.  Sybil  is  the  only  original  member  alongside Tom  Joyner  on  the  Tom  Joyner  Morning  show,  going  into  her  24th year  as  co-host.  Sybil has  received  several accolades  including  The  President’s  Award  from  the  NAACP  Image  Awards,  and  an  honorary  Doctorate Degree  from  Bennett  College  in  Greensboro, NC,  and  a  national  ambassador  for  the  Susan  G.  Komen  Circle  of  Promise  Campaign.
