CHICAGO (WLS) --A week from Monday, ABC7's Frank Mathie will mark an incredible 50 year milestone at the station - that's when he will officially sign off the air.
All week long, ABC7 will celebrate 50 Years of Frank starting by looking back at what he does best, which is telling a story like no one else can.
On Monday, Mathie shared one of his favorite stories: a re-enactment of the 2002 interception by Keith Traylor who then played for the Bears.
On Tuesday, we went back to 2013, when Mathie broke down the Gettysburg Address line-by-line and talked to a cross section of America about it.
On Wednesday, Mathie recalled when a suburban sheriff's department invited him to get tracked down by their new bloodhound named "Chuckles."
On Thursday, Mathie recalled meeting a father and his disabled son at Gillson Park and shared the touching story of their special relationship.
On Friday, Mathie reminded us that you never know what you'll get when you interview children.
On his last day, animals from Brookfield Zoo stopped by the ABC7 studio to say goodbye to their favorite reporter -- Frank Mathie.
