I worked for MTV Networks on the VH1 side from 1987 to 1990. MTV, VH1 and CBS were under the Viacom corporate umbrella. In 1989, Lucille Ball invited me to her home when I was in L.A. to do some taping. Pat Sajak had a CBS Late Night show at that time. He liked my VH1 work and made me a once-a-month semi-regular guest on his 1989-1990 CBS show.
With all that, I focused on becoming an entertainment contributor on CBS SUNDAY MORNING. I pitched myself to that program for several years, sending demo reels and resumés. I never got a response. I never got a meeting. Oh, well. I believe I could've done some fine work for that weekend news program.
Again -- thank you, VH1. And thank you for watching.
