On This Sunday: Stan Chambers

This week has been a difficult one in the world of journalism.

Aside from the career changes and developments involving Brian Williams and Jon Stewart, the journalism world lost three respectable figures this week — Bob Simon of CBS News, David Carr of the New York Times and Stan Chambers of KTLA-TV in Los Angeles.

Among these figures, I’ve had the great honor of meeting Stan Chambers at the KTLA newsroom in Los Angeles seven years ago today during a tour of the station. Chambers served as a reporter for the station over a 63-year span from 1947 to 2010. He was a true legend who represented the Golden Age of Journalism in Los Angeles throughout much of the 20th century and into the new millennium.

Stan Chambers, the last among the great L.A. journalism legends, was 91. HPIM2801
