A crowd of family members and top SoCal Journalists packed into the Steve Allen Theater, Hollywood (March 12, 2015) for the LA Press Club memorial to pay their last respects to TV News Pioneer Stan Chambers. The legendary reporter, who worked at  KTLA Ch. 5  for 63 years died Feb. 13, 2015. He was 91. Chambers was the first to broadcast live on TV in Los Angeles. He was known as a “Gentleman of the press.” He often beat the competition in breaking news. From massive wildfires, devastating earthquakes to the L.A. riots that followed the Rodney King Officers beating trial Chambers was there. KTLA was also the first to air exclusively the home video beating of Rodney King.

LA Press Club President and NBCLA Anchor Robert Kovacik said, “I had the pleasure of working with Stan Chambers, Anchor Hal Fishman, Gerry Ruben, exec producer and Barbara Scott in my childhood,” he joked. “I remember Stan telling me, ‘Just tell what you see Robert.’

 

But I also I remember when I went to work for Bob Long, (KNBC News Director).  When I handed him a news story there were a few few expletives before Long said, ‘Kovacik, didn’t you learn anything from Stan Chambers?’ I said what did I miss? He said, ‘Great reporters don’t rely on adjectives to tell a great story.’ I will never forget that whenever I write a story,” said Kovacik. For the full story visit: Examiner.com. 

In 2010, Stan Chambers was honored by RTNA at KTLA studios. Photos Online (more).
