Chloe Riley is a Reporter/Producer at DNAinfo Chicago. She currently resides in Lakeview, less than three blocks away from the chaos of Cub country.

After receiving her Masters in Journalism from Columbia College Chicago, Chloe worked as a media assistant at the Chicago Rehab Network, an affordable housing non-profit. While there, she published CRN’s Summer Newsletter and gained insight into the connection between housing and poverty that cripples many Chicago neighborhoods.

At Columbia College, Chloe wrote an employment beat and did neighborhood reporting in the 47th Ward. She’s had stories published on both Chicago Talks and its sister paper Austin Talks. Currently, she writes a blog called International Thoughts from Chloe Ann, in which she rehashes national and international news for a local Chicago audience. Chloe is also a videographer and has produced videos in Paris, Germany and Playa del Carmen.

Fun Fact: Last Halloween, Chloe went as the ghost of a Chicago parking meter. The year before, she was a Groupon.
