Gayle King: Press Pass to Life
01:01:11

Gayle King is a voice of reason, calm and love who has been in our lives for decades now. We count on having her there in the morning to inform us, lead us, entertain us and get the positive vibes flowing bright and early. When the news is bad she’s great and when the news is good she’s even better. A beloved radio host, she’s also one of the most successful names in television journalism and one of the most trusted and respected. King interviews top newsmakers and delivers original reporting to CBS THIS MORNING and all CBS News broadcasts and platforms. She is also Editor-at-Large of the award-winning O The Oprah Magazine. Since joining CBS News in 2011, King has conducted revealing and news-making interviews with world leaders, political figures and celebrities. Among her numerous awards are three Emmys and the American Women in Radio & Television’s Gracie Award for Outstanding Radio Talk Show. When they say “it couldn’t happen to a nicer person” they’re talking about Gayle King. She's one of those people who keeps us connected to honesty, truth and decency, and for that she is more valuable than ever before, and why we want her here on Phil In The Blanks.

Emmitt Smith On The NFL, ‘Dancing With The Stars’ And More
01:21:35

When it comes to judging future success, most people get it wrong, one way or the other. There are simply too many variables. One of the hardest things to do on Earth is play in the National Football League. It is also one of the hardest places to predict individual success. Everyone in the league is superior in some way: speed, strength, agility, skill, instinct, passion. Separation between best and worst is often measured in split seconds or a couple of inches, or in a single moment of inspiration or hesitation. Think about what it takes to be the best ever in a world like the NFL, to somehow move beyond superior and live there. Emmitt Smith thought about it then went out and did it. But when he was coming out of high school a man considered to be an expert at judging young football talent said about him: “he is a lugger, not a runner. He’s not fast. He can’t get around the corner. When he falls flat on his face, remember where you heard it first.” The most important variable in becoming the best running back in the history of the NFL is being Emmitt Smith.

Charlamagne Tha God: The Man Behind— ‘Shook One: Anxiety Playing Tricks on Me’
01:06:44

Money, success, fame and influence are not an antidote to anxiety and can even make things worse. For Charlamagne Tha God, living with anxiety has been a life-long issue, from an unsafe childhood and a dysfunctional family to being black and successful in America, he has looked at mental health from every perspective. As a popular radio and podcast host he has discussed the issue at length and has arrived at a compelling way of looking at things, that is, at times, at odds with the way mental health is viewed in parts of his community. Here on ‘Phil In The Blanks’ we are going to look at how anxiety and other mental health issues are viewed behind the scenes in media work environments and in the African American community, and see how one man’s tireless struggle to overcome anxiety, fear and doubt has helped shape the lives of his family, his friends, his co-workers and even some A-list celebrities.

Piers Morgan - An Appetite For Conflict And Controversy
01:14:56

If you like celebrities and controversy then you are going to love Piers Morgan who does both better than anyone else in the world. The youngest editor in fifty years of a British national newspaper succeeds with a cunning wit and a win at any cost approach to giving the public what it wants. He has an appetite for conflict and a nose for controversy, but he himself is a controversial figure as well, through his comments about others and by stretching the laws on privacy and access to celebrities’ lives. As an editor, television host and columnist Piers Morgan has made himself an international success by getting to what’s interesting about people and there is nothing controversial about that. He’s a man who will go toe to toe, any time, any place, and that’s the kind of spirit we like here on Phil In The Blanks.

Anyone who can be called both "Sir Charles" and "The Round Mound Of Rebound" has got to be an interesting person. Charles Barkley is serious and regal and joyous and athletic and always funny whether he's trash talking NBA Legends on the basketball court or offering indispensable insight into the game while hosting his television talk show.  The one thing Sir Charles has in abundance, aside from talent and numerous NBA records, is personality. He is one of the country's most watchable television stars and most beloved voices. There is no one who doesn't stop and listen when Sir Charles speaks. Fearless, transparent, wise beyond his years, spot on insights and a weary honesty that captivates are just some of the qualities and characteristics this giant possesses. Here on Phil In The Blanks we are going to give The Man a platform to express himself so we may get to know him better than ever and enjoy all those things he can't bring forward on television. There is so much fun to have and so little time! For more information: https://www.drphilintheblanks.com/

Tony Romo - A Drive To Win
01:05:33

Tony Romo, winner of the prestigious Walter Payton award for outstanding division 1-AA football player, and a consensus All- American, he was an undrafted rookie out of Eastern Illinois University when he signed with the Dallas Cowboys as an extra quarterback for practice drills. He hung around long enough to make the team and get a chance as a backup quarterback which he grabbed on to and never looked back. One of the highest rated quarterbacks ever, holder of numerous team and NFL records, and considered one of the gutsiest and smartest quarterbacks to ever play the game. He was forced to retire due to a compression fracture in his spine or he would still be playing. But his loss has been our gain- soon after retiring he landed in the CBS broadcast booth where every football fan in American has marveled at his incredible ability to know what plays teams are going to call next from both the offensive and defensive side of the ball, which has created a whole new level of fun and excitement in our television experience of the NFL and set a new gold standard for broadcasting sports. Tony Romo is a perfect example of the old adage- "the cream always rises to the top." He didn't have the high profile college career many others had, but there was no denying his talent once he stepped on the field as he outperformed big time first round draft picks his entire career. Never give up, never doubt your abilities, grab onto opportunities when they show up and you'll rise to the top just like Tony Romo. For more information go to https://www.drphilintheblanks.com/
