My interview with Marc Rosenwasser, executive producer of Worldfocus, was published today on Mediabistro. You can see it here, however the interview is only partially accessible to non-members of Mediabistro. If you're not a paying Mediabistro member, I'll have the full version of it up shortly for anyone who'd like to sample my interviewing skills--see the sidebar on the right. Marc was a very nice guy and we had an interesting conversation that hit on a bunch of different topics. And congratulations to Marc and his staff are in order--they won the RFK Journalism Award a couple of weeks ago.

Also today, New York magazine's online arm published an article I wrote about the future of the New York City local news sports anchor in the wake of WNBC's Len Berman being let go by the station last week. For the piece, which appears in the "Daily Intel" section of New York's Web site, I interviewed Len Berman, who is a really nice guy. It's sad to see him go, but he told me he plans on working on his recently-launched Web site to bring his audience sports news. I also interviewed Ron Simon, the curator of Television and Radio at the Paley Center for Media, who is also a nice guy and an expert on all things T.V. Many thanks to both of them.
Some new videos, which I wrote the scripts for a couple months ago, hit the Bon Appétit Web site recently. The videos are hosted by contributing editor Dede Wilson and all of the recipes are easy to prepare and very delicious. Check them out at the three links below:

Just finished an interview with Marc Rosenwasser for Mediabistro.com. Rosenwasser is the executive producer of Worldfocus, an international newscast that launched in October of 2008 and airs on most PBS stations across the country. He's a really nice guy and we had an interesting conversation that touched on Al Jazeera and Phil Donahue (yep, that one) among other things. It's slated to run on April 20th, so check in with MediaBistro in a few weeks to see it, or come back here.
