Statement from Mayor Emanuel on the Passing of Warner Saunders

Mayor's Press Office    312.744.3334

“Chicago has lost one of our legendary broadcasters and newsmen. For decades, Chicagoans welcomed Warner Saunders into their homes as a stalwart figure and constant companion to deliver the news of the day and put a mirror up to our communities and neighborhoods. He often stepped away from the anchor’s desk to share his passion for Chicago with community groups, organizations serving youth and aspiring journalists. Our thoughts and prayers are with the Saunders family during this difficult time.”
