Harold Greene (journalist) Biography
Harold Greene(journalist) is an award-winning journalist, read news at KCAL 9 News and CBS 2 News in Los Angeles. Prior to joining the CBS duopoly, he enjoyed a long television news career, mostly in Southern California.
Harold began his career in 1973 when he was hired to help launch the news operations for KCST-TV in San Diego.
After serving one year as anchor/news director at Channel 39, he moved over to rival station KGTV where his co-anchoring The News with Jack White and his acclaim for his coverage of the Chicano rights movement helped the station briefly overtake rival KFMB in the ratings.
Years later, Jack White became a consultant for the film Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy resulting in the filmmakers finding some old pictures of Greene in White’s scrapbooks and the look of Ron Burgundy was born.
Greene would leave San Diego in 1977 for a brief stint at CBS affiliate KPIX-TV in San Francisco, paired with co-anchor Dave McElhatton, a popular local radio personality who himself was in his first year with the station, and after a year in the Bay Area moved to Los Angeles, where he joined the top-rated Eyewitness News on KABC-TV.
After two years of co-anchoring the 5:00 pm newscast with the legendary Jerry Dunphy, however, he was fired; KABC management subsequently brought in Ann Martin and veteran Paul Moyer “formerly of KNBC-TV at the time” to present the newscast.
Greene returned to San Diego and his old evening anchor slot at KGTV, but in 1982 KABC rehired him as a reporter and weekend anchor.
His second tenure at KABC, more successful; serving as host/celebrity interviewer of locally produced programs such as Hollywood Close-Up and A.M. Los Angeles for the station, he would earn one of ten Golden Mike Awards for his coverage of the Cerritos air disaster in 1986.
He would weeknight anchor on Eyewitness News – he replaced Dunphy on the 4 and 6 p.m. newscasts when the latter moved to KCAL in 1989 and moved to the 5 and 11 p.m. newscasts replacing Moyer” who returned to KNBC” in 1992.
His co-anchors included Martin (1992–1994), Lisa McRee (1994–1997, who was tapped to replace Joan Lunden on Good Morning America) and Laura Diaz (1997–2000).
Greene exited KABC and signed with KCBS the following January 2001, reuniting him with former Eyewitness News colleagues Ann Martin (who moved to KCBS in 1994) and veteran sportscaster Jim Hill (who rejoined his old station in 1992).
Two other KABC colleagues, Diaz in 2002 and weatherman Johnny Mountain in 2005, would join Greene and Martin at KCBS, reuniting many of members of KABC’s Eyewitness News team during the 1980s and early 1990s.
By the time KCBS/KCAL dropped him and several other staffers on April 1, 2008, amid budget cuts, Greene had been co-anchoring KCAL’s 4 pm and KCBS’s 6 pm newscasts with Martin (who was also laid off).
A station source indicated he would retire, but Greene had no official comment. The budget cuts caused a trade with KTTV, as Diaz would be sent to that station “to help launch its noon newscast” in exchange for Greene’s eventual replacement, Rick Garcia.
In addition to his aforementioned Golden Mike awards, Greene’s honors also include the Columbia Graduate School of Journalism Award, nine Emmy nominations and two wins, three Edward R. Murrow Awards, and twelve L.A. Press Club Awards. Greene has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame at 6906 Hollywood Blvd.

Harold Greene, Ann Martin depart in CBS newsroom layoffs in L.A. and across the country
Sources at Los Angeles television stations KCBS-TV (Channel 2) and KCAL-TV (Channel 9) confirmed that their stations have fallen victim to the same series of newsroom cuts that have affected other CBS owned-and-operated affiliates throughout the country.
Among those departing are Harold Greene and Ann Martin, who co-anchor the KCAL newscast at 4 p.m. and the KCBS newscast at 6 p.m. Both have decided to retire when their contracts expire on June 1. In all, fewer than 20 have lost their jobs at the two local stations.
Reporters Jennifer Sabih and Jennifer Davis also were let go, the Hollywood trade magazine Variety reported.
Other CBS stations were reporting similar cutbacks: Approximately 20 staffers at WBZ-TV in Boston, 18 at WBBM-TV in Chicago (including Diann Burns, reportedly the highest-paid anchor in the city with a $2 million salary) and 14 at KPIX-TV in San Francisco, including 28-year veteran Manny Ramos. Dallas’ stations, CBS11 and TXA21, we’re expected to lose 20 employees between them.
Other cities affected include Sacramento’s KOVR-TV, Denver’s KCNC-TV, Miami’s KFOR-TV and New York’s WCBS-TV.
Five employees of CBS’ national morning newsmagazine “The Early Show” have also been let go. Altogether, the cuts and layoffs reportedly amount to about 1 percent of the CBS News workforce.
CBS News has been underperforming since not long after Katie Couric was hired 18 months ago at a salary of $15 million a year.
After initial sampling by curious viewers, she has been trailing both NBC and ABC evening newscasts in the ratings by a wide margin.UPDATED: August 29. 2017 by Daily News.
