Pete Carey had a passion for people, public speaking and informing others. All of these qualities were great for his career dream of broadcasting.
Not at all satisfied with his first job as a letter carrier, Pete became a disc jockey for WABQ in 1964. He later did news radio at WJMO. After WJMO, Pete landed a position at WJW Television. His position at WJW made history, making him the first African-American in Cleveland to become a reporter.
Hard work and dedication helped Pete Carey receive an Emmy for a project titled “Neighborhood.” Carey’s accomplishments tell us one thing … with a dream and hard work anything is possible.
