Longtime CNN Radio anchorman Paul Chambers worked with the KNTU news and sports staff the last week of March 2011. Chambers worked at KNTU years ago as a UNT undergrad (when he also appeared in numerous Theater Department productions). He moved into what we call "major market radio" as an anchorman for KRLD 1080 AM in Dallas before joining CNN Radio in Atlanta. Thanks to a wonderful Time Warner program (the corporate owner of CNN), Chambers got to spend some time 'giving back' to the students. He said he had a great time and made memories that he'll always remember. And the students were thrilled to have the chance to work with him. Below are just some quick photos of our moments with Paul.
