The MediabistroTV crew got an inside look at Meredith’s Midtown Manhattan lair. While you may know Meredith for its 12 local TV Stations, it also publishes magazines like Better Homes and Gardens and Fitness and also produces a nationally syndicated lifestyle show called, the “Better Show.”
“Better” co-host Audra Lowe showed off Meredith’s state-of-the-art TV studio that comes complete with a Mohawk red carpet that can withstand the nastiest celebrity spill, a green room the size of some Manhattan apartments and a test kitchen where Meredith’s staff of chefs dream up recipes to rival what mom used to make, only ‘Better.’
She is one of the most recognizable foreign correspondents on network television today. But did you know Christiane Amanpour’s journey to the front lines of reporting included a stint as a graphics coordinator at a local NBC station?
In this episode of My First Big Break, Christiane Amanpour talks about how escaping the Iranian revolution with her family started a journey that took her from WJAR in Providence, RI, all the way to the front lines of the first Gulf War as a reporter for CNN.
While the crew at MediabistroTV is busy in their workshop cobbling together the next episode of “My First Big Break” featuring Christiane Amanpour of ABC News and CNN, we thought we’d direct your attention to a new show she has called “Back to the Beginning.” It airs in two parts on Friday December 21st and 28th at 9pm ET/PT on ABC.
Amanpour calls “Back to the Beginning” a “field trip through the Old Testament.” The show looks at how the world’s three major religions have a lot more in common than you may think.
Then be sure to watch “Christiane Amanpour: My First Big Break” on Wednesday, January 2 on mediabistroTV.

Hosted by the founding editor of The Huffington Post and president of HuffPost Live, Roy Sekoff, the crew visits the cavernous Huffington Post newsroom where hundreds of writers sit keyboard to keyboard under the watchful gaze of Arianna Huffington herself who plays the always gracious hostess by offering up some tasty Greek Christmas cookies. After burning through the sugar high, the guys mingle with the ghosts of journalism past in the HuffPost Live newsroom where live news is served up eight hours a day by tables of writers, producers and editors who always know what time it is in Funkytown.
When you hear a letter written by Thomas Jefferson being read by actor Sam Waterston or see a photograph showing the intensity in the eyes of a Civil War soldier, you know you’re watching a Ken Burns documentary.
In this episode of My First Big Break, the iconic filmmaker tells the MediabistroTV crew how he channeled his feelings of humiliation into his first masterpiece on the Brooklyn Bridge and reveals how his mother’s death sparked his need to bring the dead back to life, shaping the style we know today as the “Ken Burns Effect.”
Watching a Ken Burns film is like watching the past come alive through the expert use of narration and still photographs. So how did he develop his signature style? The iconic filmmaker sits down with MediabistroTV in, “Ken Burns: My First Big Break.”

How many people can say they launched their career the day they met Andy Warhol? In the latest episode of mediabistroTV’s “My First Big Break”, we talk to the legendary Susan Blond, the most famous person you’ve never heard of.
The New York City based PR maven was once the “It Girl” of Warhol’s party playland that was New York in the 70s. Painting, starring in Warhol’s films, appearing in an erotic public access series, being named the first female VP at CBS Records and finally opening her own PR Company, Blond was wild and knew how to network. Selfishly, we at mediabistroTV are also excited that she brought us just two degrees of separation away from Kevin Bacon!
Before he worked at AXS TV or CBS News, Dan Rather was a local reporter at KHOU in Houston. While he was there, the former “Evening News” anchor was instrumental in developing what is now a commonplace aspect of hurricane reporting: a graphic superimposing radar over a map.
Rather rigged up the graphic while covering Hurricane Carla near Galveston in 1961. He told us all about it when we interviewed him for the mediabistroTV series “My First Big Break.” Watch:
