The Chicago Auto Show is back February 12-21 and promises to be a great event. After the pandemic caused a postponement and a scaling back of the show, CAS 2022 i back to the usual time slot and duration.
ABC & news has had a big presence at CAS. In 2018, the newscasters rotated in and out seemingly for the entire convention. I met most of the ABC staff, including Liz Nagy and Cheryl Burton.
Nagy joined ABC 7 in March 2016. Over the years, she has proven to be an excellent reporter.
Burton joined ABC 7 in 1992. The former Honey Bear cheerleader eventually became an anchor, a psotion she still holds.
The ladies were very engaging at CAS. Not only did they mett-and-greet fans at the ABC 7 booth, they were pretty much mobbed on the way to and from the booth and they graciously posed for ictures the entire time.
I don't know yet about the guest lineup for CAS 2022, but with it going for 10 days, I am guessing there will be several guests. I would love to see ABC 7 to the both again, but that remains to be seen. Either way, I will be "On the Beat" seeing whoever is there.
