Cheryl Chodun has announced her retirement from WXYZ, the ABC affiliate in Detroit.
Chodun started at WXYZ in 1978 as a news writer. She went on to be a radio reporter before re-joining WXYZ as an on-air reporter in 1988.
“This has been an amazing career,” Chodun said in a statement. “I have met so many fascinating people, I have told so many interesting and unbelievable stories. I feel as passionate now about what we do as I did the day I started. There is no question I am going to miss this, but I look forward to what I hope will be an exciting and fulfilling next chapter.”
Chodun said she plans to spend time with her family and volunteer. She also hopes to teach journalism. She will sign off from WXYZ on July 26.
