    Under the leadership of Tom I was chief photographer that helped take the station from the black and white days to living color. Appreciate the opportunity.

    Worked at Wmtv for 15 years from 1970 to 1985. Sold “time”. It was a unique and wonderful time. He was great to work for. It was a differrent arena than as he tells a little of the times. Hope all is well with him. No one believes any of the stories about those time. No cable. Thanks mr. Bolger.
