Dennis Lahti, a cameraman/editor and microwave/satellite truck operator for KNBC Channel 4, posted this photo on Facebook of his father, Richard Lahti, who spent nearly 40 years in local news.
"My pops back in the day traveling somewhere in the world for the CBS show '2 On The Town,'" Lahti writes. "I can't believe how much equipment they lugged around back then to make TV magic happen. We now do it with a camera, laptop/non-linear editing software, and a video-over-cellular live video transmission backpack. #throwbackthursday"
Lahti told me: "When I complain about my shoulder or back hurting my now retired pops just laughs and laughs."
