Loretta Swit: Next on TVC

Actress, author and animal rights advocate Loretta Swit and television historian and broadcast communications professor Steve Beverly will join us this weekend on TV CONFIDENTIAL, Friday 7pm ET and PT on Share-a-Vision Radio, KSAV.org.

Winner of two Emmy Awards for her portrayal of Major Margaret Houlihan on M*A*S*H, Loretta Swit has also received numerous other honors throughout her career in recognition for her philanthropy and for her tireless efforts as a champion of the animal kingdom. Loretta will be one of the three recipients of this year’s Icon Award at the annual Oscars party held in the Paladium in Hollywood on Sunday, February 24, the night of the Academy Awards. We will ask her about that, plus we’ll talk about her work on behalf of all animals; her support of our veterans; how she keeps herself in shape; and why she will never retire. Loretta Swit will join us in our second hour.

Also an accomplished painter, Loretta Swit is the co-author, along with Mies Hora, of SwitHeart: The Watercolour Artistry & Animal Activism of Loretta Swit, a collection of sixty-five original paintings and drawings—all done by Loretta herself, and all accompanied by anecdotes and stories about Loretta’s life, career and work on behalf of on animals. All proceeds from the sale of SwitHeart will be donated to Loretta’s endless campaign to end animal suffering and cruelty.

This week’s program will also feature Steve Beverly, professor of communications arts at Union University (Jackson, TN), where he coordinates the Broadcast Journalism major and supervises the daily student-produced newscast, Jackson 24/7. Also a television historian, as well as a former news director and on-air correspondent for WBBJ-TV, Steve hosts Steve Beverly’s TV Classics, a weekly three-hour TCM-like festival of classic shows from the 1950s and ‘60s that streams every week from EPlusTV Channel 6 in Jackson. We’ll talk to Steve about his friendships with such game show legends as Bob Barker and Monty Hall; his work at Union University, and how Jackson 24/7 teaches his students “triage” in the broadcast journalism sense of the word; and how the death of Robin Williams inspired Steve to become an advocate for mental health, particularly among TV news professionals. Steve Beverly will join us in our first hour.

A member of the National Association on Mental Illness, Steve Beverly is ready, willing and able to speak to any television news operation in America about depression, as well as recognizing and coping with surviving vulnerabilities to mental illness in one of the most rewarding but highest-stress professions: TV news. Contact Steve directly for more information about the seminars he provides.
