The Chicago Ambassador is an online publication. The Chicago Ambassador is published on the WordPress platform, but it is not a typical “blog.” It is a publication put together by traditional press veterans who adhere to AP Stylebook guidelines and the best practices of traditional journalism.

“One of Chicago’s best reporters” –Tony Fitzpatrick describing Bob Chiarito
Listen to Managing Editor Bob Chiarito interviewed on Rivet Radio in June 2015 about our story on the 11-year-old American girl being kept in Ghana against the wishes of her mother and the orders of a Cook County Judge
As for content, The Chicago Ambassador is determined to focus on Chicago-related stories that are conceived and written by our contributors. Our staff does not post stories from other publications to fill space. As for our stories, be sure to stop by frequently for interesting stories, interviews, exclusive news and more. It’s hard to narrow down our scope other than to say “Chicago related.” We can promise this: You won’t find any stories on “The top 5 hot-dog joints” or any other clichés in The Chicago Ambassador. What you will find are stories on people and things related to Chicago that are on the cutting edge, that provoke, inspire and are relevant.
We hope to count you as a loyal reader.
