In 1973, I worked at NBC News Los Angeles as an Editorial Assistant in the NBC Burbank Newsroom.

MY TIME AT NBC NEWS

Not only was I able to explore the live news and studio sound stages (filming NBC hit shows at the time, including Johnny Carson, Dean Martin and Flip Wilson shows) but also I learned so much about life working in the newsroom with the writers, producers, and some of the soon-to-be-considered greatest journalists and on-air personalities in the TV News business.

For some of the biggest news events of the time — the first Arab oil embargo of 1973 and then the 1974 Patty Hearst kidnapping —  I worked alongside such local TV stars and future NBC Network TV News luminaries as:

Tom Brokaw               Tom Snyder       Bryant Gumbel      Steve Friedman
