A well-known advocate for the deaf in Chicago is retiring at the end of the month. Karen Meyer appeared regularly on WLS-TV (ABC-7) for more than two decades, reporting on issues related to ADA law often overlooked by the news media. The television station says news anchor Hosea Sanders and producer Sylvia Jones will continue Meyer's legacy with a weekly report. Meyer, who has been deaf since birth, also retired from DePaul University's Office of Students with Disabilities this year. Read the full announcement of her retirement here.
