Lada describes herself on her Twitter page as “Mom. Runner. Triathlete. Loud laugher. Whip-cracker. Unapologetic info-maniac. Blessed beyond reason.”
The newest member of the network broadcasting the Cubs, White Sox, Blackhawks and Bulls also has a public figure Facebook page which numerous shots of her in the field. Lada is a local product returning home. She grew up in far west suburban McHenry and ran cross-country and track at Marian Central Catholic High School. Her dad was the coach.
