How many of you watch as much TV now as you did five years ago? I can assure based on research numbers I’ve seen, you’re watching less. During my nearly 20 years in the TV biz I heard from viewers all the time…too much violence, too much bad news and never enough good news—I always […]
Lidia Bastianich, one of the most popular chefs in the TV world, recently visited San Antonio to promote the PBS station here, KLRN.
