One of the state's most-respected broadcast journalists since the 1960s, Al anchors the weekday editions of Eyewitness News at 5 and 5:30 P.M.
Al's current tenure at Channel 3 began in January 1994. He had previously worked for Channel 3 from 1968-1978, and then spent two years in Florida, as a news anchor and news director at a station in West Palm Beach. During that period, he survived a devastating accident, when the airplane he was piloting developed fuel problems and crash-landed in a wooded area during a trip to Tallahassee.
In 1980, Al returned to Connecticut, to work at WTNH-TV in New Haven, where he served 14 years until returning to Channel 3.
Al's education includes undergraduate work at both Yale and Central Connecticut State. He also holds a law degree from the University of Connecticut School of Law.
A military veteran, Al served more than seven years of active duty with U.S. Air Force intelligence operations in the Far East.
Al is a long-standing member of the Society of Professional Journalists.
