Mary Ann Bergerson Ahern joined the NBC5 Chicago news team in March 1989, as a general assignment reporter after serving as the political reporter for WXIA-TV, the Gannett-owned station in Atlanta, Georgia, from 1985 to 1989. She served as Reporter/Weekend Anchor at WEEK-TV in Peoria, Illinois from 1982 to 1985.
Over the years, Ahern has become best known for covering stories about religious issues. She followed Cardinal Bernardin’s final years extensively as well as the selection of the next archbishop, Francis Cardinal George. She traveled to Rome with Cardinal George in June 1997, his first trip representing Chicago, and returned to Rome in February of 1998 for his elevation to the College of Cardinals.
She covered Pope John Paul II on five of his Papal trips, including New York, Denver, South Carolina, St. Louis and Cuba. In Cuba, Ahern was one of the few American journalists allowed to report from Havana.
While at NBC5, Ahern has covered breaking news and everyday events from elections to snowstorms, from City Hall to Wrigley Field. She has filed reports from the Democratic National Convention and reported on Princess Diana’s visit to Chicago, as well as the Bulls championship seasons and the White House. And she has filed special reports on parenting issues and the troubling delays in the airline industry.
