WXYZ: From the book, “There Was A Time” by George Burlbaugh, “George Cheely was our desk supervisor.  He had been with CBS, left to take over as news director at WXYZ in Detroit and came to the NBC Washington Bureau after that.  …  He drove a 1960 Chevy II which was given to him as a going away present from WXYZ.  It was one of the first of its model off the assembly line and George drove it as long as I knew him.”[1]

    My involvement with television and television news began more than a half century ago, almost by accident. Out of High School, I installed tv antennas, went to Korea in communication intelligence and ended up a tv news director and network news producer. This is a look back at some of the things I remember best.
