About the Author: A distinguished career in broadcasting was almost stopped dead before it began. Although Paul-Arthur Weisenfeld has since been honored by the State Bar of Michigan with an "Advancement of Justice Award", and by the Associated Press and United Press International, he almost didn't make it past his first day of work. "I had breezed through an on air audition on a lazy Saturday afternoon," Mr. Weisenfeld remembered, "On Monday, I reported to work a couple of hours early and wrote the 2:00 news. I edited my tapes and then rehearsed the show. Then to be sure, I rehearsed again. The studios were on the fifth floor and afforded a wonderful view. That's where I made my big mistake. I looked out that window at the beautiful city falling away in the lazy, mid-afternoon sun and saw hundreds of houses. It suddenly occurred to me that there might actually be somebody listening." A severe case of stage frighted seized the would-be broadcaster, and he stuttered through the broadcast. The News Director, Ken Moriarity rushed in to do the 3:00 news and shifted Weisenfeld into a reporting role. For two months, Weisenfeld trolled the halls of the State Capitol and City Hall daily reports. One Monday morning, Weisenfeld was roused out of bed by Moriarity. "There are riots in Detroit. I'm going to cover them. You're in charge." "What does that mean?" "You do what you have to keep the office going." So Weisenfeld rushed downtown, threw together a news broadcast and sat down to do the 9:00am news, after carefully locking the morning drive announcer asked Weisenfeld if he was going to bring him the copy to read. 'No, Ken left me in charge." "Are you sure you know what you're doing?" "No, but I'm doing it anyway." Since then, Mr. Weisenfeld has worked in the top ten markets in the United states, syndicated television and cable news, and many of the major radio networks in the country. He was the first Los Angeles news correspondent for the Financial News Network and has had by-lined articles on UPI and The Barricade, The International Newsletter of Les Miserables. Weisenfeld attended Michigan State University in East Lansing. He currently lives in Venice, California with a number of characters that, like Jimmy Stewart in "Harvey", only he can see, and memories of a life as a private eye that never happened.
