Patt Morrison is a multimedia, one-woman progressive Rupert Murdoch: op-ed columnist and writer for the Los Angeles Times, author of a best-selling book, public television and radio host and commentator, and now a bloggette, or is that bloggeuse? Patt was just given an entire editorial page of every Saurday Los Angeles Times for interviews of public figures.
She's covered everything from national political campaigns to the Super Bowl, from riots and earthquakes to the fall of the Berlin Wall, the Olympics and Britain's royal family. As founding host and commentator for "Life & Times" on KCET, she won six Emmys and six Golden Mike Awards. She was host and consulting producer of The Book Show with Patt Morrison, and a commentator for NPR's Morning Edition. She is a frequent guest on BBC television and radio. And, of course, she is the host of the eponymous two-hour "Patt Morrison'' Radio Program, which airs weekdays on Los Angeles NPR affiliate, KPCC-FM, 89.3.
Her critically honored and best-selling book, Rio LA: Tales from the Los Angeles River, is the story of the city's improbable river. Her short story, "Morocco Junction 90210,'' appears in the best-selling Mystery Anthology Los Angeles Noir. Her 2001 column about George Bush's rollback of reproductive rights policies eventually generated about a million bucks in Bush's name for pro-choice organizations. She has a handsome collection of brass, crystal and Lucite awards, including a share of two Pulitzer Prizes and the Skeptic Society's Edward R. Murrow award. In her spare time, she enjoys parallel parking and rescuing homeless dogs, and is exceptionally proud of having given a speech that made Carl Reiner laugh. Kirk Douglas calls her ''legs'' Morrison.
Patt will provide all of the necessary tact, skill, humor, and smarts to make each debate entertaining as well as informative. She has proven her ability to handle all kinds of tricky subjects with dignity and aplomb; and all kinds of difficult personalities with a velvet glove.
