Part 1: The Early Years
Larry Hatteberg has been working at KAKE TV for 51 years. He is a legendary journalist with a passion for photography.
"When you have a camera on your shoulder and you are watching history in the making, there's nothing like it," Hatteberg said.
Larry was raised in Winfield and was an only child. His parents encouraged his love of photography from the early age of 12. His dad owned a Bakery in Winfield, and even built a darkroom in the basement.
Larry's first camera was a 4X5 Speed Graphic, which was the standard news camera of the day.
Larry remembers the moment he wanted to go into television.
"I was watching the Today Show and they were doing live-shots, and the Arkansas Governor was standing on the front steps of the Little Rock Arkansas High School denying African-American children from going in," he said.
Larry watched the reporters and photographers covering that story. He wanted to be a part of history.
Larry started at KAKE when he was 18 years old. He begged KAKE management for a job. He started out working a temporary summer job but it quickly grew to a full-time spot.
Larry has won more than 130 State and National awards in photography and reporting jobs. He is the most honored journalist in Kansas.
