I just learned that Huell Howser a television personality has died. A couple of months ago Mr. Howser called to talk about an incident. Huell was not happy about how he had handled it, but was appreciative of how I tried to do my best to make everyone feel comfortable. During our conversation he gave me career advice and encouraged me to continue to do what I love.
I admitted to Huell that occasionally I would catch myself doing imitations of him while conducting interviews. His style and choice of stories of allowing everyday people a brief moment to share their passions and knowledge with his audience inspired me to produce Hispanic Lifestyle.
I am glad I had the opportunity to thank him for inspiring me. Cheers to you Mr. Howser for a great career and sharing California’s golden treasures with all of us for so many years.
