Linda Coblentz Geraldo Rivera

Geraldo Rivera, originally named Gerald Riviera, was born on July 4, 1943, at Beth Israel Medical Center in New York City, New York. His parents were Lillian (née Friedman) and Cruz “Allen” Rivera, with his father working as a taxicab driver and his mother as a restaurant worker.

While his father, hailing from Puerto Rico, had Galego Spanish heritage, his mother was Ashkenazi Jewish, and Rivera was brought up with influences from both backgrounds, undergoing a bar mitzvah ceremony.

Raised in both Brooklyn and West Babylon, New York, he attended West Babylon High School. The family faced discrimination, leading his mother to alter their surname to “Riviera” to mitigate prejudice, although variations such as Riviera, Ribeira, Rivera, and Ribera exist among Galician, Italian, and Portuguese families.

The surname Rivera is common in Puerto Rico due to the influx of colonists from Galicia, Spain, in the 16th century, and it is also prevalent among Sephardic Jews. Furthermore, he has connections to the Lebovitz family of Brooklyn.

Rivera’s educational journey started at the State University of New York Maritime College from 1961 to 1963, where he was a member of the rowing team. He then transferred to the University of Arizona, graduating with a B.S. in business administration in 1965.

Subsequently, he pursued law at Brooklyn Law School, graduating near the top of his class in 1969. His legal career began with various roles at organizations like Community Action for Legal Services and the National Lawyers Guild, eventually leading him to serve as an attorney for the New York City chapter of the Young Lords, an activist group in East Harlem.

His entrance into journalism occurred when WABC-TV news director Al Primo offered him a reporter position after an interview about the Young Lords’ occupation of a neighborhood church in 1969. To make his name more identifiable with his Latino heritage, they settled on the pronunciation “Geraldo” instead of “Gerald.”

To equip him for his new role, ABC facilitated his enrollment in the Ford Foundation-funded Summer Program in Journalism for Members of Minority Groups at the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism in 1970, where he studied introductory broadcast journalism under Fred Friendly, given his lack of prior journalistic experience.
