Paul Orlousky talk: Tales from 50 years as a Cleveland TV street reporter – Willoughby Hills Library

Paul Orlousky, the veteran Cleveland TV reporter (and Press Club Hall of Fame member), talks about 50 years on television as a street reporter.  “I saw a lot of things: Historic events. Horrific crimes. Bizarre behavior. Heartwarming deeds. And sometimes just hilarious, silly stuff …”  He’ll talk about what went on behind the camera … Racing to the scene in a tiny helicopter or crouching inside a sweltering news van on a stakeout … What he heard in a judge’s chambers or a courtroom lobby after a tense trial … How the internal workings of a news operation shaped the reporting viewers saw onscreen … Threats from angry subjects of an investigation, like shady business owners, politicians, and sometimes even cops …  If you’ve ever watched local TV news, you’ll enjoy these backstories behind the news stories. You’ll get a few chuckles, and might even wind up a better informed news consumer. After the talk, he’ll sign copies of his book, Punched, Kicked, Spat On, and Sometimes Thanked.
