In our archive, we have a clip of WCAU Newsman George Lord doing part of a WCAU newscast in March of 1965. The weather was done by WCAU's Dan Curtis.
Dave Rugen, a visitor to our website e-mailed:
Dan Curtis (Howard "Tony" Rugen) was my dad and we lived in Cherry Hill, NJ while I was growing up. Dad worked for WIP, WCAU, WRCV and a small station in Jersey (WTMR) before he hung up his mike. I have a picture of Dad standing by a WIP mike with Irving Berlin at the piano.
Here's an excerpt from WCAU Radio from Saturday, October 16, 1965. The newscaster is unidentified. If you can ID him, please e-mail us.
