" 'And Finally... the Floyd Kalber Story' is a seventy minute documentary of a pioneer... television newsman Floyd Kalber. He was a no-nonsense newscaster, whose honesty and integrity inspired several generations of television news journalists throughout the nation in the last half of the twentieth century. From the humble beginnings of the newsroom he started at KMTV in Omaha, to a thirty year career as the top rated newscaster in Chicago, and five years presenting the news on the NBC Today Show, Kalber's legacy lives on. This is the story of how television news began."

"Co-producing 'And Finally' with NBC producer Jerry Hansen was a labor of love for me. I feel blessed. It has really kept my dad alive, hearing him and watching him as I put the show together. Jerry did a fabulous job writing and producing the show eight years ago when Dad retired. My challenge was to update it and include all the extra material I found in the meantime. Thankfully, I had hours of home movies and tapes of Dad's work to choose from... and a wonderful narrator in dad's colleague, John Palmer. Dozens of people in Omaha, Kearney, Peoria, and Chicago helped me locate supplemental material. I am very grateful to them all. Most people don't have a record of their parents like I do. This project taught me something I share with people every chance I get... if your parents are still alive, sit them down and do an interview with them. Camera quality is not important, just make sure you get a microphone up close to them so you can hear them clearly. You don't have to be a great interviewer... just ask them about their lives. You probably won't believe the things they will tell you. Most people are thrilled to share their stories. And the result is invaluable. It will be something to remember your parents by, something you can share with your children and grandchildren. Interviewing my parents on video might just be the single most important thing I have ever done in my life."

No one delivered the news with more integrity or authority than Floyd Kalber. Present at the creation of television news, "The Big Tuna," as he came to be known, made up the rules as he went along -- and set a standard of excellence for generations to follow. In a splendid career that spanned five decades, Kalber was the epitome of the rock-solid, no-nonsense anchorman. Mick Kalber's loving and insightful documentary skillfully chronicles the remarkable story of his father's rise to network prominence at NBC – from "The Huntley-Brinkley Report" to the "Today" show -- and to unsurpassed ratings at two different stations in Chicago. Drawing on a treasury of family photos and home movies, it also reveals the private side of a very public man: From impoverished youth in Omaha and storybook romance with his high school sweetheart and best friend, wife Betty, to his total devotion to family and friends, "And Finally . . . The Floyd Kalber Story" is an inspiring tribute to a larger-than-life legend.
