Here is a portion of what Art talked about:

Alright, so let’s switch gears a bit and talk business.

What should we know about your work?
I left the journalism world last year in 2022, but my name, image, and voice is still heard throughout all of Texas on a host of television stations. I’m a spokesperson for two Houston-based companies, Kelsey-Seybold Clinic and Terry Bryant Law Firm. I do commercials, billboards, radio, and other media for these companies. I am also a noted public speaker at corporate events throughout the country and as I mentioned, a talent, image and media coach.

I absolutely loved my decades of work as a journalist. I loved meeting Individuals around the globe, learning about their lives, and putting together compelling and engaging reports that reached the audience in a remarkable way. I executive produced dozens of documentaries and hundreds of special reports over the years, many of which were recognized with some of the industry’s greatest honors, including 21 Television Emmys and more than three dozen other National and local reporting awards from press clubs in Houston, Los Angeles, and Miami. I’ve reported from more than 77 countries, Five continents, and nearly every State in the Union.

All of these honors are simply the accolades of the world—which are hardly sustaining. My love and joy come from being among my own family—my best friend—my wife, and our 7 children and 12 grandchildren…and among regular people and hearing their stories. I continue to do a lot of work in the community, serving and offering time, talents, and energies to a wide variety of charitable organizations and sitting on their executive boards. I also travel around the Southeast United States in my service as a “Seventy” in The Church of Jesus Christs of Latter-day Saints. A “Seventy” is a service office in the church that keeps me busy on most weekends traveling to congregations to minister to them and assist them in their responsibilities. It’s a great joy to serve the church and the Lord and His people in this capacity.”
