Roz Varon retires after 35 years

ABC7 Chicago family member Roz Varon joined Val and Hosea to celebrate her wonderful 35 year career.

She's been getting us to work on time with her traffic reports, and seeking out the inside scoop on all things fun in Chicago with her Weekender reports.

ABC7 Chicago family member Roz Varon is retiring after a momentous 35-year career.

When she arrived at ABC7, she was the first female traffic reporter in Chicago.

Since then, she has won countless awards, volunteered her time to causes such as the Anti-Cruelty Society and raised awareness for cancer after her own battle with stage 4 breast cancer.

Roz says she's been blessed with an incredible career and will deeply miss all the people who tuned in to watch her on the morning news for so many years.

However, she says she won't miss waking up at 1:30 a.m. every morning.

Windy City Weekend and ABC7 Chicago wish Roz a happy retirement!
