The Chicago Auto Show runs February 10-18 in Chicago's McCormick Place. I'm not a huge car guy, but I like seeing the various celebrities there.
In recent years, mostly due to the pandemic, the show was downsized a bit and the celebrity appearances limited. The CAS bounced back big time, but the celebs are still lagging. Hopefully this year will see the return of many.
For many years, ABC 7 had a booth at the CAS. I met many of the on air personalities there, including Ryan Chiaverini. After starting his career out west, Chiaverini came to Chicago in 2006 and has been a presence here since.
Chiaverini lost his younger brother to suicide and has worked for suicide awareness, as well as cancer research. His mother died from cancer.
I met him by accident, as we were walking in different directions. Although he was busy, he was kind enough to take a picture and chat briefly. He was a super nice guy.
