Authoring my new book ‘Touching Greatness’

These are special times finishing the writing of my first book called ‘Touching Greatness’ likely to be released sometime during the Summer of 2020. It will be a compilation of the many events and people I’ve experienced in my professional and personal life over the past six decades while hopefully entertaining and informing the readers of an era gone by.  From covering the Magic Johnson HIV retirement announcement to the process of breaking impactful news stories. And I’ll be describing life in Southern California through my eyes and how it’s changed greatly including my father being elected President of the Friar’s Club card room soon after it’s scandal when a federal investigation landed mobsters in prison (he also sold peanuts and popcorn at Yankee Stadium during the Ruth/Gehrig era).

I’ll also have a special chapter on how my late uncle Carl Foreman the Academy Award winning screenwriter (Bridge on the River Kwai) was a big inspiration in my life along with many comments from those still around who worked with and for him including then 101 year old Kirk Douglas. So many stories from the Laurel Canyon music days to calling games with the ’80 U.S. Olympic hockey team prepping for their Miracle on Ice…interacting with over 750 sports Hall of Famers and having aired more than 40,000 sports updates on radio. I’ll keep you updated on the progress of the book’s publication and when you’ll be able to purchase a copy. Thank you as always for your support and I can’t wait to share this with all of you.Screenshot_20171212-114916-01
