John Lynch talked about the history of the Vanderbilt Television News Archive. Mr. Lynch shared what he considers to be highlights of the archive and spoke about how the news industry has changed since 1968. Paul Simpson, a Nashville businessperson and Vanderbilt graduate started the archive in August 1968. Since then, the archive has recorded the nightly news programs for ABC, CBS, and NBC, and more recently CNN and Fox News.
