Life On Air With Tim Tialdo- Episode #024 - Former REAL TV Host John Daly
My guest on today's podcast is best known as a pioneer in reality TV for hosting the ground-breaking show Real TV, the first all-video news magazine show. Daly helped launch the show after being a news anchor in Las Vegas. He made the unprecedented jump from the 68th television market to the national and international spotlight. He also helped launch another national show, “House Detective” on HGTV, a look at home improvement through the eyes of home inspectors. Despite being seen on TV worldwide and being away from the TV newsrooms, John’s background in news kept calling. He became the main prime-time anchor for New England Cable News, owned by Comcast, in January, 2011. John’s published a book called Truth: The No BS Guide To Navigating A Media-Biased World. It’s a simple how-to book for the everyday person to understand what’s really happening in the media. As an outgrowth of his book, and at the advent of writing a new, updated edition, Daly launched the weblog “Informed-Not-Inflamed” (www.informednotinflamed.com) to help decipher the explosion of media technology, new voices, and new manipulators that are invading our discourse. John and his wife Teri, a personal trainer, have been married since 1985. He is represented by Host Agent Mark Turner at Abrams Artists NY.
