Jeff Kreiner, former VP and creative director at both CBS and NBC, and the author of two books, is now sitting down with television leaders and recording the conversations as podcasts called Kreiner’s Korner, that can be heard for free.
I’ve known Jeff for years from when he worked with Dan Rather, then the evening news anchor at CBS.
Jeff is one of the most likable people you’ll meet in the business, so when he asked yours truly to be featured in one of his podcasts, I was worried.
I knew Jeff would ask me great, insightful, penetrating questions about television news promotion and marketing. I just wasn’t sure my answers would measure up to his questions, but, hopefully, there’s a pearl or two of wisdom in my replies. And hearing yourself talk when it’s been recorded is just so strange.
NOTE: Talent runs in the Kreiner’s family. Jeff often posts pictures of his mom’s watercolors, and everyone is a masterpiece in my opinion. Here’s one of her latest.
Here is my conversation on Kreiner’s Korner, and below that, a list of all his podcasts with some industry heavyweights.
