Sad news to report, and that is that longtime ABC 7 anchor Joel Daly has died after a long illness. He was 86 years old. He was inducted into the Chicago Journalism Hall of Fame in 2001 and the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences Silver Circle in 2003. He was not only an anchor but a published author and an attorney who went to become a legal analyst, pilot, and consultant after leaving television news. He will be sorely missed by everyone in Chicago lucky enough to have seen him grace our tv's.
