KYSL SD23: Troy Johnson

January 28, 2009

Know Your Session Leaders ….

And let’s say hello to Troy Johnson ….

Hi, Troy!

Let’s see, magazine editor, radio host, Emmy-winning television host … Billboard, Mojo, Rolling Stone, Spin, Paper, San Diego City Beat, San Diego Gay and Lesbian Times … throw in his debut novel, Family Outing: What Happened When I Found Out My Mother Was Gay, and what more can I tell you?

Okay, okay, I’ll sweeten the deal. It’s said that once upon a time, a publicist explained to Charlie Chaplin that the now-famous speech, “Look Up, Hannah“, from The Great Dictator, would cost him a million dollars in box-office revenues. Chaplin allegedly replied, “I don’t care if it costs me five million. It stays in.”

And if you’d like to read the story of how Troy decided to risk the wrath of Wal-Mart, well, don’t let me stop you.

So make sure to hear our modern-day Chaplin explain the delicate art of “Pitching Magazine Editors Story Ideas“.
