If you have worked at Channel 2 in Los Angeles any time back to "The Big News" years with Jerry Dunphy and Bill Stout, there's a Facebook group you might like. Past employees are busily posting memories, photos and updates on old friends at an open group called I worked at KNXT/KCBS Ch. 2 in LA when it mostly didn't suck. In the past week, posters have included Pat O'Brien, Terry Murphy, Maclovio Perez, Roy Firestone, Terry Anzur, Steve Kmetko, Ross Becker and a whole bunch of producers, writers, photogs and others behind the scenes. Topics have ranged from the old feature show "2 on the Town" to the successes and whereabouts of alumni such as Warren Olney, Ann Curry, Connie Chung, Ralph Story, Clete Roberts, Sandy Hill and Joe Benti. "It was the greatest time in my professional life. Period," O'Brien writes.
