My Training

Don Morrow started his broadcast career while a student at Syracuse University on the GI Bill shortly after World War II. His first job was with Syracuse's first TV station "WHEN" as newscaster and announcer. Don heard of greener fields in Texas and in the late summer of '49 signed Dallas's 2nd TV station on the air as KBTV. While at the station, Don graduated from Southern Methodist University. By the Spring of 1951, Don was working in a freelance syndicated show with baseball Hall of Fame's Dizzy Dean who got him to quit WFAA and come to New York where Dizzy broadcasted a play-by-play for the Yankees. When owner Del Webb had other plans, Diz got Don a job on The Liberty Broadcasting System, a Dallas based outfit with 536 radio stations across the country.

During Don Morrow's career he has competed successfully with Richard Burton, Orson Wells, Vincent Price, Henry Fonda, James Earl Jones, among other major actors.

The late Don La Fontaine said of his early mentor Don Morrow, a few years ago: "In the Beginning, if Don Morrow hadn't been there, I wouldn't be here..."
