Retired NBC5 Anchor, Past NABJCC President Warner Saunders Dies at 83
The National Association of Black Journalists is deeply saddened today. We have lost another giant.
Warner Saunders built an enviable career from a foundation of grit, determination and love for his community, and over several decades ingratiated himself into the hearts and respect of the viewership whose living rooms he entered daily as a veteran NBC Chicago news anchor.
The passion and wisdom he shared has left an indelible mark on Chicago’s media landscape, and his critical role in steering the helm of NABJ-Chicago for many years left just as great a mark on this organization.
Warner Saunders will be missed.
