With a foreword by Tom Brokaw, and more than 200 images from the Museum of Broadcast Communications, Joel Tator’s Los Angeles Television chronicles the evolution of local TV broadcasting dating back to 1931 and L.A.’s original seven TV stations. Tator, a 25-time Emmy-winning TV producer, will appear to discuss his book, which also uncovers several technological advances — such as the first TV helicopter — and discusses numerous TV personalities (including Johnny Carson, Betty White, Steve Allen, Liberace, Lawrence Welk, Regis Philbin, Bryant Gumbel and others) who began their broadcasting careers here.
