Two names missing on “The Honor Roll – In Memoriam”

THE FOUNDING OF CHANNEL 44
Ted Conant, son of Harvard President, and Jim Kelly- aide to Bobby Kennedy, were hired by Hartford Gunn to be the founding “staff” for the creation of Channel 44. Hartford then recruited me from NET Television, Inc., — the Ann Arbor based duplication and distribution center of the then NET — to join Ted and Jim at WGBH – in 1966. Jim died around 1980 and Ted died at age 95 in 2008.

Thank you for the information, Jack. (Sorry for the delay!)

I’ve updated our Honor Roll: <https://www.wgbhalumni.org/people/honor-roll/>
