Televisionation: Julie Simon on Television, her “Relatively Famous” Aunt, and Making Cakes for the Jenners

http://tvotshow.com/televisionation - Televisionation: Friday Fireside features Rick Howe, The iTV Doctor, in conversation with prominent figures from the advanced-TV/video industry.

If you’re in the television business, or anywhere in the world for that matter, you know Julie Simon and her “relatively” famous aunt Carly. In a funny and charming 30-minute Friday Fireside, Julie shares family memories, including how her grandfather Richard Simon (of Simon and Schuster) introduced paperback books and sheet music to America, and the Broadway musicals by her mother Lucy. And along the way we learn about Julie’s time at HBO, Time Warner Cable (including a winter stuck in a head-end in Green Bay, Wisconsin), Lifetime/A&E Networks, Fox Networks and Spencer Stuart. Plus her more recent time making astonishing cakes for the Jenner family and others in the “rich and famous” world, and providing advisory services to media executives, both budding and experienced. And, of course, the session was briefly interrupted by the “Ghost” of John Lennon.
