Robert Macy

During a 30-year career with The Associated Press that ended in 2000, Macy spent 19 years as correspondent in Las Vegas, producing some 11,000 bylined stories and an estimated 15 million words. The University of Kansas journalism graduate became an AP legend when a pedestrian walkway collapsed at the Kansas City Hyatt Hotel, killing more than 100 people. He obtained a worker’s pass that allowed him into the building where he stayed throughout the rescue effort. His exclusive behind-the-scenes reporting ran worldwide.
