Back in ye olden tymes, pawn shops were dark, dirty and cramped storefronts where fictional detectives would go to sweat a confession from an equally fictional shop owner. Who would want to work in that environment?
Now that pawn shops are featured on reality TV, the former dens of iniquity are revealing a softer side complete with a family focus.
Recently Les Gold and daughter Ashley, stars of truTV’s Hardcore Pawn sat down with MediabistroTV to give us some insight into why viewers like to watch shows about what they do. One hint? Anyone looking for a slightly used prosthetic leg?
Next Week: Is Hardcore Pawn real or just reality show?
You may know him for his stock-picking strategies, staying ahead of the bulls, and out of the way of the bears. But Jim Cramer‘s big break happened far from Wall Street, in Tallahassee, Florida, at a sorority house, which became the scene of a grisly crime at the hands of a notorious serial killer.
Following his humble start as a newspaper reporter, along the way Cramer became a magazine writer, a lawyer, a hedge-fund manager, an online publisher and a best-selling author. And he did it all while honoring his parents’ wishes. Here’s Jim Cramer’s First Big Break.
According to Andrew Schulz, host of MTV2′s Jobs That Don’t Suck, thinking outside the box is key to hustling and make a living out of what you truly love to do.
In our exclusive interview he’s quick to point out, “Obviously, I have a job that doesn’t suck and I’m a comedian. I’m always learning.”
And he’s working comedian hours at night through the wee hours of the morning. “Nobody really works 9 to 5 anymore,” he quips. Read more

We get a little excited when we hear about a show that’s all about jobs. After all, that’s our jam!
Imagine our delight when we heard MTV 2 has a new show airing on April 16 called Jobs That Don’t Suck.
Focused on young people finding their dream job, it seems like it’s going to focus on teenage entrepreneurs and Millennials leaving corporate America and making their mark.
The trailer quips, “Just tons of people with one thing in common: they love their jobs.”
And remember, per a lawyer turned entrepreneurial chef in the same clip, it’s important to rock out to what makes you distinctly you. “The things that make you weird make you money.”
Check out the trailer after the jump! Read more
Shepard Smith has been a part of Fox News since there has been a Fox News. But the longtime anchor took on a new challenge late last year: hosting a high-octane newscast from a futuristic (yet functional) studio without compromising the mission: report the news, first and fair. So, what does that take to accomplish every day?
In the first edition of the MediabistroTV series “What’s Your Show?” Smith and his team take us behind the scenes of “Shepard Smith Reporting.”
Look for upcoming episodes of “What’s Your Show?” from MSNBC, Al Jazeera America and more. And to watch more MediabistroTV videos, subscribe to our YouTube channel and follow us on Twitter: @mediabistroTV.
If you’re a fan of Undercover Boss, you’re accustomed to watching CEOs and owners sport disguises to learn about the inner workings of their company by working among employees.
Tomorrow night apparently things will get flipped upside down! According to our friends at AOL Jobs, returning bosses will send their own workers into the mix in order to check on policies instituted after their first undercover show aired.
Returning bosses will include Menchie’s CEO Amit Kleinberger, Postnet CEO Steve Greenbaum and Twin Peaks co-founder Randy DeWitt. There’s a twist though — in this episode they’ll send employees to spy on the group to see what really goes on.
For instance, in one previous episode DeWitt paid a profane server $5,000 to stop cursing like a sailor on the job. In the upcoming episode it sounds like she may turn into one of his undercover employees.
Per the piece, it’s a first for the show since employees were always kept in the dark. Perhaps now that their bosses are more recognizable than in the past, this makes total sense.

Considering her show has been on the air for 25 years making it the longest running cooking show in television history, there’s a lot we can learn from the multi-tasking Esposito.
And we would be remiss if we didn’t mention the festivities surrounding the interview and the other notable chefs who are also the definition of personal branding and talent. Whether it was the mozzarella demonstration by Todd English or the animated discussion surrounding halibut by Food Network star Robert Irvine, there’s so much to learn from chefs in the top of their field in the classy ballroom, a beautiful respite from a wintry weekend. Yes, it’s about food but ultimately it’s about their stories. Personalities, persistence, drive. Read more
