Everything has a history. Local TV news is no different. Before Al Primo, if you wanted to see TV reporters in action, you had to go to the newsroom and lay eyes on them. That all changed in 1965 with Primo's singular TV news innovation: Eyewitness News. UC Journalism faculty Brian Calfano, Sean Hughes, and Alfred Cotton present TV News Primo: an interview series detailing Primo's impact on TV news in all its forms, and featuring Al Primo himself.
