Bill Poorman is a writer and multimedia producer. He lives in downstate Illinois in the Village of Morton, about ten miles outside of Peoria. For the last several years, he's been a member of the unpaid economy - that is, he's been a stay-at-home dad, raising two boys. Prior to that he worked in public radio and TV as a reporter, news director, and as an on-air radio and TV host for local and statewide programs. Bill won numerous awards for his journalism. He is active in several non-partisan political groups in the Peoria area, including the League of Women Voters and Illinois People's Action. Bill is a life-long resident of the Great Lakes region and proud of it.
