Karen Graham, who left Fox 5 in early September after 16 years, is starting a new venture helping the deaf.

She told the Atlanta Daily World:  "The deaf community has a special place in my heart, so I knew my next career step would fall in this area.  I am so excited to combine my professional experience with an extraordinary service for the deaf community.    There’s nothing like this out there."

[She revealed details that night about a new TV news network focused on American Sign Language. Details here.]

What she plans to do relates to equal access to communications in American Sign Language. She has been an active advocate for the deaf for more than a decade.
