Today marks the beginning of WBTA News' series, "Attica at 40: In Our Own Words," featuring interviews with former WBTA personalities who lived and worked through America's worst prison riot.
Today's interview is with Rich Funke, who had interned and worked nights for WBTA in the late 1960's. In 1971, Rich was living in Batavia, working as a news producer and evening anchor for WHAM-1180 in Rochester. On September 9th, he got the call - something big was happening in Attica.
