Los Angeles Area Vice Chair
Mitch Waldow is a veteran broadcast journalist who has worked in front of and behind the camera as a reporter, writer and producer at a half-dozen Los Angeles television stations. His documentaries have received multiple L.A. Emmy nominations and numerous national awards. Mitch is the recipient of a regional Edward R. Murrow award for large market TV writing, and has picked up several L.A. Press Club honors -- including most recently a Best Live News Coverage award for a webcast he co-anchored for KTTV Fox 11.
As the Archive Manager of the Fox owned and operated stations in L.A., Waldow oversees what is considered to be the largest local television news library on the West Coast, going back to 1949. Hundreds of film and television producers have benefited from Mitch's knowledge of L.A. history and his ability to locate key archival footage for their projects.
Mitch is a local broadcast history buff and film collector who has written and lectured on the subject. He's a proud member of an informal community of archivists who save, preserve and honor L.A.'s television legacy.
