Financial Focus

Wednesday, December 16th, 2009

For those of you who have been inquiring about Financial Focus, it has been delayed due to host J.P. Neil losing his voice. No matter how good his financial information is, he found his voice a mandatory requirement to doing the program. He will likely begin in January.

Quinn Martin, plus 2009: The Year in TV: Next on TV CONFIDENTIAL

Friday, December 11th, 2009

Join us as we look back at the year in the television—the good, the bad and the ugly—on the next edition of TV CONFIDENTIAL, Tuesday, Dec. 15 at 11pm ET, 8pm PT on Share-a-Vision Radio, KSAV.org.

Jay Leno and NBC may have dominated the headlines, but they were not the only stories in the world of television in 2009. The year also saw the Emmy Awards telecast rise from the dead, thanks to a spirited performance by host Neil Patrick Harris, as well as a host of controversies involving the likes of David Letterman, Sarah Palin, Carrie Prejean and Tiger Woods. It was also a year that saw the passings of such cultural icons as Walter Cronkite, Don Hewitt, Karl Malden, Army Archerd, Dominick Dunne, Larry Gelbart, Fred Travelena, Beatrice Arthur, Ed McMahon, Michael Jackson and Farrah Fawcett. We’ll talk about these stories and more when Tony Figueroa and David Krell join us in our second hour.

In our first hour, we’ll welcome back television writer Paul Robert Coyle as we conclude our three-part series on the programs of Quinn Martin. Paul’s credits in television include episodes of such QM series as Barnaby Jones and The Streets of San Francisco, as well as other popular dramas like Simon & Simon, Jake and the Fatman, Crazy Like a Fox, Midnight Caller, Xena: Warrior Princess and The Dead Zone. Paul offers great insight into the workings of QM Productions, as well as such key QM personnel as Buddy Ebsen, Lee Meriwether, Philip Saltzman and William Conrad. This promises to be a full program as usual, and we certainly hope you’ll join us.
