About

dsc_6294
I have more than 40 years of experience in broadcast, print, and Web-based journalism for which I have received numerous awards, including 17 Lone Star awards for Internet opinion writing from the Houston Press Club. I have been a radio and television reporter, producer, anchor, and commentator for The Red River Radio Network. I also wrote, produced, and narrated the weekly Food for Thought for Tribune Media.

Among media outlets that have carried my work are American Thinker, Digital Journal, Blog Talk Radio, Townhall, Men’s News Daily, Etherzone, American Daily, Post-Chronicle, The Morrock News Digest, Morning Paper, the Prairie Press, The Terre Haute Tribune Star, The Fort Bend County Business Journal, New Mexico Business Journal, Louisiana Political Review, and Albuquerque Tribune. I also wrote two chapters for The Christian History Project. 

My experience includes communication leadership positions at several universities and news organizations. I have more than a 15 years of experience in leading or formulating internal and external executive and institutional communication at public research universities and state medical schools and clinics in Texas and New Mexico. This includes speech writing and executive communication for presidents of four colleges and universities, governing board chairs, and the head of an international business association. My executive communication background also includes correspondence, magazine articles, op-ed pieces, media statements, and legislative testimony. I have written, designed, or edited print and Web-based publications.

I also created a branding strategy for a national environmental testing corporation; conducted an issues analysis and a communication plan for a regional dairy; and worked as the political media adviser for a state office holder in Texas. 

I have taught at three universities and I’ve done voice work for Southwestern Bell, Louisiana Tech University, the University of New Mexico Health Sciences Center, the New Mexico Commission for the Blind, The University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston, and the New Mexico Governor’s Commission for the Handicapped.

  1. Hi John. Irene Hernandez suggested I contact you, and after reading your posts, I am excited to do so!

    My name is Lola, and I, along with my husband, own an alternative healing center named Yoga Lola Studios in League City, Texas. Together Kevin and I also started a non-profit, “Integrative Healing-After-Trauma Services Organization” (IHATSO) in 2009, which we haven’t yet gotten off the ground. Because of the kind of work we do, Irene thought that you might have an interest in what we do and how we do it. If that’s the case, we’d sure love to talk to you.
    So sorry to hear about Sharon’s issues and her suffering. I send you both love, light & healing. And, since you mentioned that acupuncture was so far away from where you live, check out our Acupressure Mats & Pillows and see if the resonate with Sharon. They have helped many people, including me and I can give you a list of local references as long as my arm who will all vouch for this products effects . I give you my word that they are not “shaky water”.
    You can reach me at my email address or by phone at 281-684-3168. Our Yoga Lola website is http://www.yogalola.com and the IHATSO website is under transistion, but will be up and running soon.
    Thank you and take care. Lola
