As some of you may know, Larry started his journalism career when he was still a student at Strathmore High. At that time he was a "stringer" -- or minor correspondent -- for the Fresno Bee, when he was paid (I think) $1.00 for phoning in the school's football results. And he continued to work for the Bee during college at Fresno State. Larry comes by his journalism interest via heredity, as his mother, Greta Stewart, was also a Bee correspondent.
Following graduation from Fresno State, Larry worked at the Visalia Times-Delta, and apparently thought he would stay there forever. But by a twist of fate -- a phone call he almost missed -- he was offered a position at the now defunct Los Angeles Herald Examiner, where he got tremendous experience and responsibility, especially the opportunity to write the TV-radio column, which is what he is best known for. After a few years at the Herald he moved to the much more prestigious Los Angeles Times, and continued to write the TV column there for the next 30 years. This assignment afforded him many amazing opportunities for meeting fascinating people and attending many of sports biggest events -- World Series, Super Bowls, Stanley Cups, Olympics, Kentucky Derby -- to name a few. He has also covered horse racing, drag racing, hockey. Having worked at two newspapers, Larry covered sports in Los Angeles for over 40 years.
