Herald Examiner slide show

For last week's reunion of Los Angeles Herald Examiner alums, organizer Alex Ben Block, columnist for Hollywood Today.net, and Josh Kleinbaum, managing editor of interactive for the Los Angeles Newspaper Group, put together a slide show of old pictures from the paper. Here it is; click on the slides to see the whole thing bigger or for caption info.

If the slides don't appear, click here. HerEx graduate John Schwada, now at Fox 11, blogs about the reunion:

The Herald-Examiner was to me what the Great Depression and WWII were to my parents (sorry, Mom and Dad, that’s probably a stretch, maybe even sacreligious). In other words, working for that newspaper produced great horrors, adventures and joys…

Let me say, without fear of contradiction, that for ten years the Herald-Examiner was an experiment in anti-journalism. It was the creation of eccentrics who loved the news and were guided by a desire to get scoops and upset the city’s sacred cows; it told stories while others pontificated; its reporters ducked under the police tape at crime scenes to find out what really happened while other papers waited for the official version.

Also: Frank Girardot blogged about the event for the San Gabriel Valley Tribune. Luke Ford posted video and photos. Susan Christian Goulding devoted her weekly column in the Daily Breeze to her personal feelings about the reunion. And here's a link to my KCRW commentary pegged to the evening.
