TV Confidential is a two-hour radio talk show about all aspects of television that directs itself to the Baby Boomer, Generation X and senior markets. Each edition features lively interviews with special guests on topics related to popular network TV shows and the state of the medium in general. The program is heard nationally every week over several stations, while previous broadcasts are archived online at www.tvconfidential.net.
Our audience encompasses listeners from all parts of the world, including many who work in the film, radio and television industries. The common bond is their unbridled passion for the past, present and future of television programming.
Regular features of TV Confidential include an interactive look back at “This Week in Television History,” news on upcoming DVD releases and commentary on items related to television. We also offer a trivia contest with prize giveaway. But the hallmark of the show is the in-depth interviews with the many well-known actors, writers, producers, directors, journalists, authors and other entertainment industry professionals who appear as guests. We strive to take listeners behind the scenes of a wide range of television programs past and present. We often compare today’s programs with those of the ‘50s, ‘60s, ‘70s and ‘80s. This allows a very broad audience to not only relate to our show, but participate with their imagination and memories.
Previous guests include such film and TV icons as Lee Majors (The Six Million Dollar Man), Jack Klugman (The Odd Couple, Quincy), Lee Meriwether (Barnaby Jones), William Schallert (Get Smart, Dobie Gillis, The Patty Duke Show), Richard Anderson (The Bionic Woman, The Six Million Dollar Man), Sally Kellerman (M*A*S*H) and Susan Olsen (The Brady Bunch), HBO programming executive Andrew Goldman, Emmy-winning writer/producer Joseph Dougherty (Saving Grace, thirtysomething), former CBS programming executive Mike Dann and broadcast pioneer Loreen Arbus.
