If there ever was a classic example of the messenger that made good, this is it. Harry Fuller started his television career as a messenger for KPIX in the early 70's and by the mid 90's he was the station general manager. His decision to choose news as his route to major success paid off for him. While at KPIX he rose to the position of assistant news director.
In the mid 70's he was hired away by KGO-TV as morning assignment editor where he quickly moved up to the position of news director. While at KGO-TV, Harry gained a reputation for encouraging aggressive news reporting, earning for the station a trademark for "jumping" on breaking news. Under his leadership the station earned Emmy, Edward R. Murrow and Peabody awards for its coverage of the 1989 Loma Prieta earthquake.
In 1990 KPIX lured him back where he first served as the news director earning numerous Emmys for that station, and later as the station's general manager.
In 1996 Harry joined ZDTV as news director where he has led that network's ground-breaking coverage of the computer industry. Harry will be leaving for London to take over as Europe bureau chief for CNBC network.
