Harold Greene Biography – Harold Greene Wiki
Harold Greene is an award-winning journalist. He reads news at KCAL 9 News and CBS 2 News in Los Angeles. Greene began his career in 1970 as a reporter and producer for KABC-TV in Los Angeles. In 1973, Greene was hired to help launch the news operations for KCST-TV (now KNSD) which at the time became the new ABC affiliate for San Diego. He served for one year as anchor and news director at Channel 39. He later moved over to the rival station, then-NBC affiliate KGTV, where his co-anchoring The News with Jack White and his acclaim for his coverage of the Chicano rights movement helped the station briefly overtake rival KFMB in the ratings.
He left San Diego for a brief stint at CBS affiliate KPIX-TV in San Francisco, partnering with co-anchor Dave McElhatton, a popular local radio personality who himself was in his first year with the station. After a year in the Bay Area, he went back to Los Angeles and rejoined KABC-TV as co-anchor of the 5:00 p.m. Eyewitness News with the legendary Jerry Dunphy. After two years of co-anchoring the 5:00 pm newscast with Dunphy, he was fired. He returned to San Diego and his old evening anchor slot at KGTV but in 1982 KABC rehired him as a reporter and weekend anchor alongside Joanne Ishimine.
His third tenure at KABC became more successful, which included serving as host/celebrity interviewer of locally produced programs such as Hollywood Close-Up and A.M. Los Angeles for the station. Greene left KABC in August 2000 and later signed with KCBS in January 2001, reuniting him with former Eyewitness News colleagues Ann Martin. He has received the Golden Mike awards, Greene’s honors also include the Columbia Graduate School of Journalism Award, nine Emmy nominations and two wins, three Edward R. Murrow Awards, and twelve Los Angeles Press Club Awards. Greene has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame at 6906 Hollywood Boulevard.
