Shortly after he was hired, Bob Priddy began his search for two reporters for the new network due to go “on air” January 2, 1975. He selected two young guys, Jeff Smith and Chuck Morris. Smith had worked with all of us at KLIK, but left Missouri to finish his degree at Indiana.

This morning I interviewed Chuck Morris from his home near San Diego about how he was hired, what he recalls about his years as reporter here and what he’s done since. Take 10 minutes and enjoy. The picture is Morris sitting in the broadcast studio our first week. You can see his face in this shot.
