The first television newscast appeared on an NBC pioneer station in New York City in 1940. The program was a simulcast of Lowell Thomas's radio news show. Today, though, there are several news reports to choose from at almost any time of the day. You can be watching the news while reading a crawl of news on the ticker below the host, and multi-screening to get another perspective from your social media on a mobile device. Whether you watch the news regularly or not, you'll likely recognize these journalists from the small screen—past and present—who are (or have been) beamed into our homes to read the news of the day.
Charlie took to the written word like a fish takes to water. That is to say; they found themselves immersed in literature from before they were born. They've been known to tell their friends how they can still remember the passages their parents read to them when they were in utero - Emily Dickinson, Jane Austen, and a bit of Hunter S. Thompson thrown in to balance it out. Charlie keeps their feet wet, whether they're whipping up pithy one-liners to tease your brain or busy working on their second novel (the first one is available on Amazon under a pen name they refuse to disclose). You’re sure to get a kick out of giggle-worthy explanations and outrageous hints, and still come away feeling like you’ve just expanded your knowledge base.
