#TBT: TVNewsers Tell What it Takes to Make it in The Business

By Kevin Eck 

Today’s Throw Back Thursday comes from the collected wisdom of those who have made it to the top of the media heap.

Al Roker, Christiane Amanpour, Dr. Oz, Lou Dobbs, Erin Burnett, Jerry Springer and Larry King all give their best advice on how to make it in the business.

Amanpour told TVNewser, “We did it with pleasure, as team work makes the dream work! And especially since Bob’s tragic death it is a poignant reminder of professional collegiality.”
