Mark K. Miller
Mark is a journalist who has been reporting, writing, editing and managing periodicals — most of them covering the television industry — for more than 40 years. In 1975, he joined Broadcasting magazine as an editorial assistant in its Washington headquarters. He quickly became a staff writer, covering the Federal Communications Commission, the Federal Trade Commission, public broadcasting, the cable television industry and broadcast journalism.
Mark moved from reporting to editing and in 1991 was named managing editor of the renamed Broadcasting & Cable. As managing editor, he was in charge of the editorial, art and production staffs at the magazine’s Washington headquarters and at bureaus in New York, Los Angeles, Denver and London. Mark left Broadcasting & Cable at the end of 1998 rather than follow it to New York City and began a freelance career writing, editing and photo researching. He continued his association with Broadcasting & Cable as managing editor of its monthly tabloid magazine, Digital Television, until it ceased publication in December 1999.
As a freelancer, his media-related clients included: Variety, Multichannel News, Cable World, Extra Extra, Sony Network and the University of Maryland’s Library of American Broadcasting.
Mark worked with Harry Jessell to launch TVNewsCheck in 2016 (as TVNewsDay) and has been its managing editor since then.
He graduated from Shippensburg State College (now Shippensburg University of Pennsylvania) with a B.A. in communication/journalism in 1975. He lives in Cheverly, Md., a suburb of Washington, D.C.
