Bill O’Reilly: the Lost WFSB Tapes from His Time in Hartford

Bill O’Reilly: the Lost WFSB Tapes from His Time in Hartford | Channel 3's Dennis House Blogs


Gerry Brooks called him "The Pope."


O’Reilly worked in Hartford 31 years ago, anchoring our evening news and reporting on some of the top stories of the day. The fall of 1979 saw the infamous Windsor Locks tornado, the visit of Pope John Paul II to New York, and the Iran Hostage Crisis. O’Reilly covered all those stories along with trailing the candidates flocking to Connecticut for the 1980 presidential primary, including George Bush, Ronald Reagan, and Ted Kennedy.
I was 8 when the tornado struck Windsor Locks and only vaguely remember that it happened. I'd completely forgotten, if I ever knew, that Olbermann's nemesis was a news anchor on local TV back then.
