To start our new season, we invited a very special guest. He is a broadcaster, actor, public speaker, media project manager, supervisor, director, filmmaker, and producer. He hosts "Ann Arbor Tonight", Michigan's first late-night live audience, televised show. Born with Cerebral Palsy, he is also a lifelong activist for the local disability community.It was a little nerve-wracking to talk with someone with so much experience in something we're just starting at. But talking to our guest turned out to be super easy because with him being there, there was never a dull moment.So, let's roll out the red carpet for our guest today, Mr. Zach Damon.
Thanks for coming back for the 2nd part of Mr. Zach Damon's story.I first learned about cerebral palsy through reading a book in elementary school, called Out of my Mind. The main character was a little girl who was born with the disorder and was also incredibly bright, most likely a genius. The book has stuck with me all these years, although it was fiction. Our guest today Mr. Zach Damon is a prime, real-life example of a brilliant mind in the disabled community.In the last episode, Mr. Damon talked about how he carried his dream throughout his teen years and became a professional broadcaster working through our local cable channel and social media outlets. Today, he shares what it takes behind the scene to make any show happen.
