The Cubs paid tribute to Eyewitness News Anchor Ron Magers just days before he retires.

He was in the broadcast booth during Saturday's game talking about his plans to spend more time racing and breeding horses. He also spoke about his decision to step away from the anchor desk.

"You know what I say about it is, I'm sort of glad I stayed this long. I'm really glad I know it's time. And how many of us in our business get to go out when we want, the way we want. There's always been some things I wasn't able to go to. Some sales, some time spent at the barn and that kind of stuff. I'm really looking forward to it. But also I've worked nights for 50 years, so I plan on going out to dinner and not caring how long it takes. I don't have to get back for something at 10 o'clock," Magers said.

Ron's last day is Wednesday, May 25. Until then you can see him right here on ABC7, weekdays at 5 p.m. and 10 p.m.
