iTunes Music Store should adopt subscription for TV programming
I suggested when pontificating over the merits of the iTunes Music Store's for-purchase method of ABC network television programming a permanent subscription format. This can easily be done by applying the proven opt-in concept of RSS, perfectly marrying...

My new sportstalk TV show premiered
There's truly no business like show business. I spent the latter part of last weekend feverishly researching & writing the new weekly 30-minute sportstalk TV show that I developed and I'm producing and co-hosting with Brant McCreadie . We were taping...
Suffering through buffering: MTV's "Overdrive " - streaming...but not quite?
I'm thinking I may have to issue a retraction for what I'm about to assert at some point in the future, with Guam's bandwidth being crappy ( along with other infrastructure- and consumer-based technologies ). But I've spent a hefty part of what I'm assuming...

I've lost a colleague today. My thoughts, prayers and condolences go out to Peter Jennings' family and the folks at ABC at his untimely passing . As a fellow broadcaster, he's someone whose style, suave and charisma were something all of us in the business...

"Grey's Anatomy" season only 7 episodes? Damn.
My favorite show this "season" ( if we can even call it that anymore ) is ABC's "Grey's Anatomy" . Funny, great writing, and yet again showing that shows about hospitals, police precincts and law firms never go out of style. With Guam getting most of...

Not a bad consolation prize: ousted "Dream Job" contestant Casey Stern lands gig with MLB.com
I was really happy to see Casey Stern, one of the guys who didn't make the final cut for ESPN's first season of its "Dream Job" reality program , anchoring a webcast on MLB.com . He's a good kid with some talent. Glad he got picked up. I also remember...
Beyond the glitz and glamour...
OK, I had my moment of gratuitous self-indulgence when I verbally patted myself on the back for having won an award for "Best Regional News Site" for my work with KUAM.COM . I'm seriously more proud of my colleague and longtime friend, Mindy Fothergill...
Why doesn't VH-1 do DVDs?
One thing that really confounds me as a marketing major, a TV industry professional and lifelong critic of other people's work is why VH-1 , despite all it's phenomenal success and acclaim, especialy over the last 4 years, doesn't get more into merchandising...
