I’m Michael Schulder. That’s me in the beret, in 1960 — the infant son of a standup comic.
Notice the curiosity in those eyes? That curiosity has driven my career in journalism:
From covering the 1984 presidential election as a Researcher at ABC News;
To becoming a Writer at The MacNeil-Lehrer Newshour on PBS;
To my five years as a Writer for Peter Jennings at ABC World News Tonight;
And 17 years as a Senior Executive Producer and on-air essayist at CNN.
That’s roughly 25 years that I boiled down into an entertaining 25 minutes in this video: The Reel Michael Schulder.
Shortly before I left CNN, I was invited to host a new radio interview program called CNN Profiles.
The result was 44 in-depth, deeply personal conversations with great authors and inspired leaders in sports, politics, business, the arts — you name it.
Which inspired me to establish my own platform and create Wavemaker Conversations: A Podcast for the Insanely Curious.
If you’re still curious, I hope you’ll take a few seconds to sign up for my Wavemaker newsletter.
It’s where I’ll be sharing the highlights — the truly memorable takeaways — of my continuing conversations with the most fascinating people imaginable.
