InfoDick Carlson
He was one of those TV rarities: an anchorman who actually broke news. He won fame in L.A. as an investigative reporter, exposing, among other scams, a strange new car called the Dale. The Dale never existed, but the car’s promoter existed in duplicate; he/she turned out to be a transvestite. In San Diego during the 1970s, Carlson anchored at Channel 8. Later, turning political, he waged a bruising, losing campaign to unseat indicted Mayor Roger Hedgecock. And then Carlson entered appointive politics. After serving as director of Voice of America and assistant director of the U.S. Information Agency during the Reagan-Bush administrations, he was appointed ambassador to the Seychelles. These days, back in broadcasting, Carlson and his wife, Patricia, live in the Washington, D.C., area, where he’s president and CEO of the Corporation for Public Broadcasting.
