Respected TV journalist Rollin Post '47 covered nine presidential campaigns and 18 national political conventions, as well as a multitude of state and local contests. He achieved national recognition when he interviewed Senator Edward Kennedy during his primary campaign for president. (Watch VIDEO)
In an era of fluffy news and blow-dried personalities, Post remained a throwback to the era of his broadcast hero, Edward R. Murrow. He was not always perfectly coiffed or properly pressed.
He started as an usher at CBS Radio in Los Angeles, then worked as morning copy boy for the news bureau. While at CBS, he met his future wife, Diane Opley.
In 1961, the couple moved to San Francisco, where Post began work as a morning producer and assignment editor for KPIX-TV. Within a year, he became an on-air reporter.
In his 40-year broadcast career, at KPIX and, later, TV stations KQED and KRON, Post covered nine presidential campaigns and 18 national political conventions, as well as a multitude of state and local contests.
In a testament to his renown in political circles, Post played himself in the 1972 movie The Candidate, which starred Robert Redford as a vacuous, and successful, candidate for US Senate.
