Nothing but love for my hometown

I’ve always watched ABC news with my mom growing up in the Gresham area. I remember I used to imagine they were like part of the family because our tv stayed on Channel 7 pretty much all the time so much that I knew everybody’s name easily and when I didn’t see them that day I would ask my mom where is that person at today? I hope they will be back tomorrow. Lol, then my mom will say they’re probably working out on an assignment for the news that day; and I will say ok then they’ll be back tomorrow to tell us about it lol. I still watch ABC news and look forward to seeing all the anchors familiar faces because it reminds me of home sweet home! My mom passed away in 2019 and I have since moved to Iowa with my husband to be closer to our 2 grown children. I love Chicago and I miss being there because it’s my hometown. I love you ABC and I will always keep all of you in my prayers. I enjoy you today just like yesterday! Take care ALL. And thanks for being so personable and professional.

My News

I’m a 51 year old man who lives in Kenosha, WI, there is only one cable contractor that allows me to receive both Chicago and Milwaukee news stations. I’ve worked in the Chicago area for thirty years now and I’m soon to retire. I’ve been an avid channel seven guy since I was a teenager. I can remember when some of the ABC personalities came from other stations and I also see some of the old ABC personalities on other stations. ABC7CHICAGO is commuted to having the best, the brightest and the most beautiful people that it can find. There’s nothing like waking up to Tracy, Tanya, Roz and Terrell in the mornings. You also have my all time favorite in Judy Psu in the afternoon and I go to sleep with ABC7CHICAGO at ten. Thank you all for always delivering the news the way we can all receive it from people who seem to really care about Chicago and the surrounding areas.

Great show for Chicago. it’s great to be able to keep up on the news or catch news as it’s happening in Chicago because it’s such a moving city. Great to be able to tune in without it being the regular news times of the day. keep up the good work. I must add that sometimes it seems that your station is rather biased for Republicans for example when Trump was running for president it seems that your station was constantly talking about Benghazi Benghazi Benghazi which really prejudiced Hillary Clinton quite a bit but when it was Trump in the Whitehouse you did not talk enough about what a traitor he was or do it constantly. Thank you.
