In today’s Portrait in Black History, we recognize a Cleveland man who is a pioneer in Cleveland broadcasting.

Pete Cary was the first African-American reporter to hit the airwaves in Cleveland on FOX 8.

Pete first arrived at FOX 8 as a reporter covering the Hough riots in 1966. He continued to work in Cleveland for the next two decades, hosting the public affairs show 'Rap' and later producing 'Neighborhood.'

In 2008, Cary was inducted into the Press Club of Cleveland Hall of Fame.
