Greg Young’s PBS Debut: Watch ‘Citizen Hearst’ on American Experience (Sept. 27)

So remember last year when we did a two part show on Joseph Pulitzer and William Randolph Hearst? Here are the shows to refresh your memory:

Part of the reason for that two-part episode last summer was because I was preparing to film my PBS debut for American Experience — a two-part series on the life of William Randolph Hearst — newspaper mogul, politician, rich guy.

Well a year later — and Citizen Hearst has arrived!

Check your local listings but the show will debut on most places on Monday, September 27.

Part 1, Monday, September 27, 2021, 9/8c
Part 2, Tuesday, September 28, 2021, 9/8c

Here’s an exclusive clip from the show where I’m chatting about Newspaper Row in lower Manhattan. I’ll be featured in both parts (although most in part one, set in New York City)

Follow along with the Bowery Boys on Twitter this Monday for some further details about Hearst and some behind-the-scenes photographs

Watched both parts of this presentation, and in depth look at a man who loved innovation, competition and power. There were things I forgot about Hearst and new things that I learned. Greg Young you were MAHVELOUS! You added very succinct and poignant thoughts and comments about the Citizen.
