Remembering NBC 5 Broadcaster Warner Saunders. See story here. https://www.nbcchicago.com/on-air/as-seen-on/remembering-nbc-broadcaster-warner-saunders--496707511.html
Warner Saunders was a Chicago treasure. He was a Chicagoan from top to bottom and he was an incredibly good news man. I had the pleasure of speaking to him a few times over the year. He was always warm and interesting. Warner Saunders, 83, collapsed Tuesday night and was taken to Illinois Masonic Medical Center where he was pronounced dead. He spent four decades on the air at WBBM-TV (CBS) and WMAQ-TV (NBC), before retiring from WMAQ-TV in 2009. He won 20 Emmy awards. He also taught in the Chicago Public Schools and at four local colleges.Prayers to his family and friends.
