Hollywood Salon…on Zoom!
Special Guest: RON HULL, Legendary PBS Programmer & Senior Advisor – NETV
Join us on Zoom this Monday to hear about the inspiring personal and professional tale of this legendary Nebraskan. An adoptee born in South Dakota, his evolution of self-discovery has been mirrored in the U.S. histories he’s been pivotal in cultivating for PBS & beyond.
RON HULL currently serves as the Senior Advisor to Nebraska Educational Telecommunications, and Professor Emeritus of Broadcasting at UNL. He has dedicated his life to a career in Public Television in Lincoln and Washington, DC. He developed the AMERICAN EXPERIENCE series for the Corporation of Public Broadcasting which continues to influence viewers, thereby shaping the culture of the United States.
The Nebraska Broadcasters Association Hall of Fame inductee helped build the statewide NET network, considered one of the best in the PBS family. At the national PBS headquarters, Ron used his expertise to recommend 850 TV shows for revival. His cultured perspective comes from first-hand experiences as a Fulbright Scholar, through which he taught International Television at Cheng Chi University, Taipei, Taiwan.
Additional programs he helped create include ANYONE FOR TENNYSON, READING RAINBOW, & THE MARK TWAIN SERIES. Notably, Ron was awarded a Presidential Commission to serve on the President’s Committee on the Arts by Pres. Jimmy Carter, and the Henry Fonda Award in Nebraska. He is the author of the award-winning BACKSTAGE – STORIES FROM MY LIFE IN PUBLIC TELEVISION.
