This month, Connecticut lost one of it's most prominent broadcasting voices. Bob Ellsworth was a presence in TV and radio in the state since the mid 50s - and was the first man to anchor the 11 O'Clock news on Channel three. Ellsworth was one of a generation of broadcasters that fondly remembers the "good old days". Many of them still get together the last Monday of every month. WNPR's Catie Talarski took a trip down memory lane with a "Bunch of Old Broadcasters".
