Avy Meyers

Avy Meyers, host of the award-winning news program North Town News and publisher of the newspaper Jewish Chicago, died over the Memorial Day weekend.

His cable TV program was truly must-see TV. Both a gracious host and a tough questioner, Avy never hesitated to inject his own strong opinions. I looked forward to the election editions of Jewish Chicago because of the strong reasoning for his endorsements. I didn’t always agree with him, but I could understand and appreciate his thought process. He never hesitated to call it the way he saw it. He brought the same qualities to his role as CAPS Beat Coordinator, serving in that capacity for several years until stepping down this March.

By all accounts he was a good neighbor and a loyal friend. Breitbart News lauded him as a “citizen journalist.”  I think he’d be proud of that.

Avy Meyers was a West Ridge treasure, and he will be missed.
