So he packed his bags for Yuma, Arizona and got a job covering local politics and crime for KBLU radio and TV — for $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.
