cwaldron_big.jpgThe Basics
Age and occupation. How long have you lived here, where did you come from, and where do you live now?
30. Senior Associate Producer, "NOW With Bill Moyers." Native Washingtonian (DC) living in New York for 9 years. A very happy Brooklynite for close to 4 years.

Three for Ch. 13
1. Everything I know about talk show TV producers comes from HBO's Larry Sanders Show and Rip Torn's character, Artie. Have you had similar experiences and does Bill complain about the size of his ass?
No and no. I happen to work in television, but I don't watch much of it, save for a couple of mindless programs I won't name. Working for Bill Moyers, a master storyteller and journalist, has been a great job. It's all about quality content, unbiased journalism, telling stories people do not want to hear and those that mainstream media does not cover.

2. As Bill reflects on retiring from NOW after this year's election cycle, he quotes Tennyson's Ulysses:
"How dull it is to pause, to make an end,
To rust unburnished, not to shine in use!"

I'm not really sure what that means but what do you plan to do in the post-Moyers era?
That is a very fitting quote. Perhaps I will "shine in use" while on what I hope to be an extended stay in Paris. When I can no longer eat anymore baguettes and cheese, drink anymore kirs or indulge my shopping desires, I'll return to my broadcast and documentary work in NYC.

3. Got any juicy green room stories?
Sorry, I can't say that I do.
