In his two-and-a-half hour-plus Archive interview, Lynwood King talks about breaking into television in 1949 at Chicago's WNBQ. He describes the famous "Chicago School" of broadcasting pioneered by such legends as Dave Garroway and Studs Terkel. King talks about his work as a stage manager on network series that originated in Chicago, including Studs' Place, Garroway at Large, Zoo Parade, and Kukla, Fran, and Ollie. He recalls working as a director on series including Hawkins Falls and in New York, Tonight! America After Dark: the late night series that ran in between the Steve Allen and Jack Paar Tonight shows. He also discusses his work in public broadcasting and on documentary series, including Project 20. He speaks in great detail about his work as a director on the Today show, which reunited him with Dave Garroway. King also discusses his later freelance work on The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson and on soap operas, including Ryan's Hope and One Life to Live.
