I had the advantage of being in this brand new medium that fascinated people. I could have read the phone book and they would have watched, but I think a good part of what kept them with me over the years was that I was enthusiastic about what I was doing. I wanted to share whatever it was with them. Qyality mattered, and my staff used to tease me because I kept insisting that neatness counts, no matter how simple and basic a project might be. This carried over into the guests we presented as well.

VH: Was there a defining moment when you thought, "Hey, I can make a career out of my passion"? ER: Probably when I started getting press. It was nice that somebody wanted to write about my work. Right away, the New York Times wrote about my book, and I thought it was cool that they considered it to be worth a story.

I do all this myself, so when I try something that doesn't work, I kill it and try another thing.
