CHICAGO SIGN-OFF

Tonight will see the final broadcast of  “ABC 7 Eyewitness News on The U,” the 7 p.m. Monday-through-Friday newscast produced by Disney’s WLS for Weigel’s WCIU in Chicago as the independent prepares to become a fulltime CW affiliate.

It also means the end of the 25-year run of Hosea Sanders anchoring one form of news or another for WLS.

He will continue to report for the station.

Cheryl Burton, who co-anchored with Sanders, will continue to co-anchor the 5 and 10 p.m. newscasts on WLS alongside Alan Krashesky.
