To anyone who reads this space with regularity, you know that I love old movies which means that I am a big fan of Turner Classic Movies and host Robert Osborne. Osborne has been the host at TCM since the channel’s inception in 1994 but has been involved with the entertainment business much longer than that. He actually got his start as an actor working for Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz in the 1950's and 1960's. Lucy thought that he would be a better writer than actor and he took her advice by writing the "Academy Awards Illustrated". This eventually led him to "The Hollywood Reporter" where he has been writing a column since 1982 covering just about everything in Hollywood and on Broadway. His work as host on TCM is outstanding as there is probably nobody who knows more about classic movies than Robert Osborne.
I also love the classics and think it would be fun to host the movies and do interviews with those involved at TCM. It’s just one more job that I would like to try.
