Background
Wald was born in Manhattan. He graduated from Columbia College with a Bachelor of Arts degree in 1952, and was classmates with future ABC News president Roone Arledge, PBS and NBC News president Larry Grossman, and The New York Times executive editor Max Frankel.
Career
He began his career in journalism with The New York Herald Tribune, where he served as a reporter and rose through the ranks to become the paper's last managing editor, working with Jim Bellows, before the paper's demise in 1966. He also served as the Sunday editor of the New York World Journal Tribune and assistant managing editor of The Washington Post before joining NBC in 1967.
Wald became president of NBC News in January 1973 and left the network due to friction with the management over unsatisfactory ratings. His Columbia classmate Arledge, then president of ABC News, hired him to run the day-to-day operations of the news division in 1978. Wald was promoted to senior vice president for editorial quality, nicknamed the "ethics czar" of the network. As Roone Arledge's deputy, he was credited with bringing in talented reporters such as David Brinkley to the network and helped launch This Week with David Brinkley in 1981. He retired from ABC News in 1998.
Screenwriter Paddy Chayefsky followed Wald at work for two days while writing the film Network, and he is considered the inspiration for William Holden's character in the film.
Outside his professional career, Wald is also the Fred W. Friendly Professor of Professional Practice in Media Society Emeritus at Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism.
Personal life
Wald was married to his wife, Edith, from 1954 until her death in 2021. They had three children. His son, Jonathan Wald, is a media executive who was the executive producer of NBC Nightly News and is the senior vice president of Programming and Development at MSNBC.
Wald died on May 13, 2022, aged 92, from complications of a stroke he had the previous month.
