For this month’s Client Spotlight blog, we wanted to introduce broadcast producer and reporter Judith Bishop. Currently based in Miami, Judith has worked in broadcast journalism for over 40 years––decades of experience that led her to write her first book “Changing Channels: From Just the Facts to Outrageous Opinions” as well as to begin hosting her podcast “More on the Story.” Since we consider ourselves fans of the truth here at ATC, we’re excited to share more on Judith’s recent work, but first, allow us to offer some background.
Judith began her career in broadcast reporting in 1975 when she took a position as a television news anchor and reporter at WTVG in New Jersey, where she quickly rose through the ranks covering the latest in the political and business news of the day. During her early career, she covered multiple Democratic National Conventions, and was also responsible for several high-profile interview programs hosted by some of the biggest names in TV news, including Al Roker, Dick Cavett, and Tim Russert. Judith was also responsible for producing many programs at CNBC––thirty of which are now recorded in the permanent archives at The Paley Center. She’s worn a lot of hats throughout her career as a veteran journalist, from helping coordinate the launch of “HARDBALL with Chris Matthews” to producing documentaries and year-end specials, and now she’s adding podcast hosting and writing to her impressive resumé.
Changing Channels: From Just the Facts to Outrageous Opinions
At ATC, we had the pleasure of helping Judith in the creation process of her debut book, which she wrote as “an examination of television journalism in the age of Trump.” An integral piece of the publication was the inclusion of interview snippets and extensive quotes from industry insiders, including famous TV news anchors, reporters, and more––and that’s where we came in. Working with Judith to provide fast and highly accurate, verbatim transcripts from these sources was both challenging and incredibly fascinating for those members of our team that had the opportunity to contribute the transcription, and we’re thrilled that Judith described us as “a one-stop shop for verbatim transcriptions at rapid speed and a fair price.”
“Changing Channels” is available now on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and your local bookstore. It’s a captivating exploration of the world of TV news in our modern era, asking––and answering––some of the deepest and most compelling questions about the ways that television news has come under public scrutiny in the time during and after the Trump presidency. We think it’s both a thoughtful and a critical examination of the search for truth in media, and we heartily recommend it to those looking to hear about the world of TV news by those who know it best. Her podcast “More on the Story” is available on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, or wherever you listen to podcasts.
