Shooting Stars: Emmitt Smith
When you produce a talk show in the fourth largest city in America, you tend to run into a lot of stars– the kind in front of the camera…as well as the kind both on and off the field. In that category, perhaps there was none greater than NFL Hall of Famer Emmitt Smith.
During my time at Great Day Houston, I booked a whole galaxy of stars on the show….including two Oscar winners: Patty Duke and Lou Gossett, Jr. There were plenty of others, too, like…Emmy Award-winner Valerie Harper, TV legend Henry Winkler, Cheech Marin, Michael York, Kenny Rogers, Mickey Gilley, Johnny Bush, Clay Walker, Roberta Flack, Melissa Manchester, Macy Gray, Marilu Henner, Nichelle Nichols, Shemar Moore, Aisha Tyler, S. Epatha Merkerson, Vanessa Hudgens, Mayim Bialık, Kayla Brown, Sugarland, MercyMe, Dan Aykroyd, and super model Petra Nemcova.
And by satellite– some more compelling interviews with Robin Williams, Robert Wagner, Bill Paxton, and LL Cool J.
Having worked with so many celebrities over the years I’ve learned the real keys to winning their trust and in turn– I’ve tended to score great rewards like a lot of exclusives! The stars know–they’re always in good hands with me!
