CHICAGO (WLS) -- As we remember our former colleague Jerry Taft, who died Thursday at 77, the thing many remember best about him was his laugh.
His laugh was well-known to ABC7 viewers, perhaps most famously during a newscast on August 6, 2009.
As anchor Ravi Baichwal made a comment after a segment while transitioning to the weather forecast, Jerry burst out laughing and could barely compose himself as he delivered the forecast.
