- Author BiographyStan 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.
