Happy Birthday to Geraldo Rivera

Happy Birthday to the man who inspires love or hate, admiration or exasperation, but rarely a neutral reaction.  Geraldo Rivera, a lawyer, television host, and author, was born on July 3, 1943.  Geraldo attended the University of Arizona, Brooklyn Law School, University of Pennsylvania Law School, and Columbia University School of Journalism.  His original career goal was to be an activist lawyer; with his flamboyant personality, he was soon recruited by the television industry.  In 1987, he started to host his hour-long syndicated talk show Geraldo, and with his self-described “down and dirty” reporting and willingness to put himself in danger, he soon became the most controversial television journalist on the air.  Rivera is also an accomplished author; his books include, “The Great Progression: How Hispanics Will Lead America to a New Era of Prosperity”.  Stay tuned!
