Eric Sevareid Farewell Nov 30, 1977


CBS Commentator Eric Sevareid bade farewell to his audience when he retired Nov 30, 1977. This video was rescued from a 3/4″ Beta aircheck of the CBS Newsfeed I recorded everyday at 3:30 PST when I produced the 11pm newscast for KOIN-TV in Portland. Sevareid was one of my heroes because he was one of the last class acts of the Murrow era to retire. I recently rescued this video that had been sitting in my attic for all these years, and I thought it appropriate to post it here for a new generation to discover. Enjoy.
