Whether you stay in Chicago to make your mark or leave to make your impact felt somewhere else, you are still Chicago. 100%. It’s a badge of honor anyone from the city, that is second to none, wears proudly.
When you win, we cheer for you. And when we lose you, we cry and hug as a family. And that’s where we are in 2020, remembering and celebrating the ones – the special ones from “The Chi” – who will no longer make the journey with us.
But we will continue to move on, keeping their memories in our collective hearts. Because that’s how we live and continue on. No matter where we are. Below are some of the good, talented Chicagoans who inspired us and will continue even if they are not walking with us:
ABC 7 Meterologist Jerry Taft
Iconic TV Executive Fred Silverman
Co-Creator of ‘The Young and Restless’ Lee Phillip Bell
Radio Host Clark Weber
Radio Host Ron Britain
Model and Woolworth Heiress Mary Hartline Donahue
WMAQ NBC-5 Producer Anna Vasser

We also realize 2020 has had a devastating effect on some of our extended family – you our readers. If you have lost someone this year due to COVID or anything else, you have our sincere thoughts and empathy.
They are gone, but never forgotten. Happy New Year from Reel Chicago.
