Lou Dobbs: My First Big Break

Lou Dobbs wasn’t having much fun working in commercial banking. He thought TV news would be more exciting. So he packed his bags for Yuma, Arizona and got a job covering local politics and crime for KBLU radio and TV — making $75 a week. “There was a certain downside to commercial television that I hadn’t anticipated!”

But now, almost 40 years later, Dobbs credits his days in Yuma for giving him his First Big Break.
