BREAKING NEWS: I am so honored to share with you that my book, Personality Driven, has been named one of the 7 Best News Industry Books Of All Time by Bookauthority.com. I want to personally thank all the Thought Leaders on the site who voted this book to be worthy of consideration. There is 35+ years of discovery in that book. My success started at the University of KTLA where I got a PhD in Morning television during 6 years and countless hours in the control room producing live TV. I also want to thank the remaining few right-brain producers who are working tirelessly to produce personality-driven programming both on-air and on-line amid the lifeless constructs of soulless automation. So few television executives still recognize that people still watch people.
I am eternally grateful to the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce for award the KTLA Morning News its own star! July 8, 2021 was the 30th anniversary of the show’s premiere and I am so proud of all that we have accomplished. Thank you to all the original staff members who created a format that would be copied around the world – and pushed the KTLA Morning News to the highest-rated local morning show in the history of TV by our 14th sweeps period.
