In case you missed it, last week we announced that Dave White has officially handed over the reins of Talking Television, and that Frankie Montiforte and I will be taking over as hosts of the program beginning Tuesday, Aug. 12 at 10:30pm ET, 7:30pm PT on Share-a-Vision Radio. As we also announced last week, the program will now be called TV CONFIDENTIAL, and will be broadcast every other Tuesday at 10:30pm ET, 7:30pm PT (instead of weekly, as before).
Other than those two changes, TV CONFIDENTIAL will be the same program you know as Talking Television, only with different hosts. We’ll have many of the same features, such as our DVD report and David Krell’s commentary, plus we’ll continue to take you behind the scenes of your favorite shows and pay tribute to your favorite TV personalities. In fact, on our Tuesday, Aug. 12 program, we’ll look back at the career of William Conrad—from his early days as the radio voice of Matt Dillon to his memorable work as the narrator on Rocky & Bullwinkle and, of course, The Fugitive, from his behind-the-scenes work as a TV producer to his starring roles in Cannon and Jake and The Fatman.
Paul Robert Coyle, who worked with Bill on Jake and The Fatman, will be joining us on Tuesday, Aug. 12… we hope you’ll join us, too.
In the meantime, if you would to be on our email list for future announcements, or if you have an idea for a future program, please email us at our website, www.tvconfidential.net. As a matter of fact, the idea for our tribute to William Conrad originated from a regular listener—so we definitely want to hear from you!
Finally, as we also announced last week, the reason Dave is stepping aside is that he will be launching a new program, DAVE WHITE PRESENTS, beginning Tuesday, Aug. 19 at 10:30pm ET, 7:30pm PT on Share-a-Vision Radio. DAVE WHITE PRESENTS will then alternate with TV CONFIDENTIAL in the Tuesday, 10:30pm ET, 7:30pm PT time slot. You can learn more about Dave’s new show by going to www.audioentertainment.org.
