Reporter Lauren Victory finally gets to sign on to the health plan at CBS-owned WBBM in Chicago.

After three years as a per-diem reporter she’s been promoted to full-time staff reporting.

“Lauren has proven to be a diligent and detailed enterpriser as well as strong storyteller and she’s already making her mark on the ‘Morning Insider’ team,” news director Jeff Harris told staffers in an email.

She’s a Medill grad who worked as an associate producer at Weigel’s WCIU before reporting stints in Hartford, Connecticut; Burlington, Vermont; and Lansing, Michigan.
