What People are saying about this

Nancy Reagan
"Stan's dedication, integrity, and professionalism are legendary. Stan doesn't just report the news; he cares."
Tom Durian
"As I closed News At 10 this evening, I found it ironic that I was marking the pages with my own business card... which read Reporter/Anchor. It was because of Stan's inspiring career that I found my way into this crazy business. I am a little disappointed I never got to go out on any stories with Stan when I interned at KTLA now nearly ten years ago. But the leadership that Stan and others (including reporter Bill Smith, and the late Hal Fishman) showed provided me with a great start in the news business. It has been said that the history of Stan Chambers is the history of Los Angeles television news. I completely agree, and News At 10 provided me with insight that I hope to one day draw on as a reporter in Los Angeles as well. I don't remember a news event while growing up that Stan or KTLA were not a part of. Congratulations Stan on your monumental achievement... I hope that you continue to inspire young journalists with your dedication."--(Tom Durian, Reporter/Anchor KHQ-TV Spokane, WA)
Tom Brokaw
"Stan, I am in awe of your career, and I am privileged to have been your colleague."

Meet the Author

Stan Chambers: For sixty years Stan Chambers, KTLA’s Channel 5 News most beloved reporting icon, has come into Southern California’s (and sometimes the nation’s) homes. Stan’s career mirrors the birth of the first commercial TV station west of the Mississippi.

Backed by the driving force of KTLA’s ground breaking station manager, Klaus Landsburg, Stan covered some of the biggest stories to affect Los Angeles and the nation. It began with the Kathy Fiscus tragedy in 1949, where he covered the story live for 27 straight hours – the first reporting of its kind – to breaking the monumental Rodney King beating story that rocked the nation.

For the first time, Stan Chambers comes out from behind the camera and shares his thoughts behind his enduring career and highlights some of his over 22,000 stories. He’s still out there, mic in hand, because, as Chambers puts it, “When you report news in Los Angeles, you are broadcasting to the biggest hometown in America.”

Hal Fishman: Hal Fishman was the lead news anchor at KTLA Channel Five News up to his death in 2009.
Tom Brokaw: Tom Brokaw is an American television journalist and author best known as the anchor and managing editor of NBC Nightly News from 1982 to 2004. He is the author of The Greatest Generation (1998) and other books and the recipient of numerous awards and honors. He is the only person to host all three major NBC News programs: The Today Show, NBC Nightly News, and, briefly, Meet the Press. He currently serves as a Special Correspondent for NBC News and works on documentaries for other outlets.
