He joined KTVU on April 23, 1968 as a clerk typist, and became anchor in 1976 -- one of the first African-Americans to become chief anchor of a major-market TV newscast. He co-anchored alongside Barbara Simpson from 1978 to 1986. Elaine Corral served as co-achor from 1986 to 1998, followed by Leslie Griffith through 2006.
