Jim Hartz Brief Biography

Jim Hartz (born February 3, 1940) is a former American television personality during the mid- and late-1970s. Hartz became best known to a national audience for a two-year stint as the co-host of the Today Show, along with Barbara Walters. Hartz replaced Frank McGee.

Hartz was born in Tulsa, Oklahoma, and graduated from Tulsa Central High School in 1958. He then attended the University of Tulsa as a premed student, but after three years he decided to pursue journalism instead. Hartz first became a reporter for KOTV in Tulsa in 1962 and was promoted to news director in 1964, shortly before he joined NBC-owned WNBC-TV in New York as anchor of its late evening newscast, where he remained until 1974, when NBC promoted him to Today. His run turned out to be relatively brief; future NBC Nightly News anchor Tom Brokaw would take over from him in 1976, when Walters left for ABC. Hartz then went to WRC-TV in Washington, D.C., where he was an anchor until 1979.
