‘I Am Geraldo, 50 Years’ Available to Stream now on Fox Nation
Mustachioed reporter extraordinaire Geraldo Rivera celebrated his 50th Anniversary in television with “I Am Geraldo, 50 years.” The docuseries is available to view now on Fox Nation, the Fox News Channels’ digital platform.
In it the Emmy and Peabody-award winning correspondent reflects on his most high-profile investigations, beginning with his epic expose on the conditions of the “Willowbrook State School.”
In that riveting crusade to close down America’s grim institutions for the developmentally disabled, Rivera made history. His reporting at Willowbrook is still being taught today in every school of social work in the nation, forever changing attitudes about the care and treatment of the mentally challenged.
The four-part series follows Rivera’s career from little-known New York reporter for Eyewitness News back in the 1970s, into international stardom — and the bumps along the way, including his infamous live coverage of the opening of gangster Al Capone’s vault.
One of the last of the Rock and Roll newsmen, Geraldo went everywhere from the killing fields of Iraq and Afghanistan, Central America, Africa and around the globe, interviewing boldface names from Yasir Arafat to Fidel Castro, Muhammad Ali to Charles Manson to Donald Trump.
From gritty street reporter to jet set playboy to host of saucy late night and raucous daytime television programs, “I Am Geraldo” takes you behind the scenes of one of journalism’s most storied careers.
