The job I had as a security guard at the Prospect Lot, which was known as ABC’s Television Center had me all over the lot. I mentioned earlier, it was on about the third day on the job that I met John Travolta, who wanted me to watch his candy apple red Vette while he went out for a drive with Christine Lund in her brown 280Z. That was the first of many times I met Christine Lund. Again, it was in the parking lot and in the many newsroom related areas. She was always very nice to me. But since this was so long ago, I don’t know if she would remember the day she and John went off together in that 280Z. Since originally posting this, I’ve had more views on this than any other post. It seems like everyone wants to know the latest news on L.A.’s favoriite newswoman. Replies to the post indicate she’s in our 49th state. I never did hear how the drive with John went, but if I ever do hear from her, Alaska. (sorry…it was just too easy)
Now, I have to say here that I also met Bill Van Amburg as well, and even though I don’t have a picture of him, I do have a channel 7 eyewitness news pin…a 7 in a circle that Bill gave me.
