45 years ago today my dad, John Gray, began his career at CBS Television in Chicago. It was the beginning of a great 32 year run - from the Windy City to the Big Apple and back (twice), and then out to Television City in Hollywood. He started as an account executive and retired 13 years ago as a Senior Vice President. (Slacker).
Dad loved his job a lot, and the people he worked with even more. As a family, we loved the fun and adventure that came with his career. CBS became, and still is, a part of our DNA. I never needed to know the address to CBS in Los Angeles - it was just right there on the corner of Beverly and Fairfax. But I'll never forget the addresses to the Chicago and NY offices - 630 North McClurg Ct, and 51 West 52nd. (The former was the home of the first televised Presidential debate in 1960).
Here's to you, John Gray. Remembering a what a great career you had, and how much fun we had being a part of it!
