If you grew up in Los Angeles you know who Dave Lopez is. There weren’t that many Latino reporters on the scene when he first started. He covered a wide range of stories in his 48-year career on TV.

The former CBS2/KCAL 9 reporter is now retired and has penned a book about his experiences, “It’s a Great Life If You Don’t Weaken.”

His book is now available everywhere books are sold.
