About Brett Larson:
brettlarson_AAA2406CROP.jpgBrett Larson joined WNYW/Fox 5, the Fox Television Stations flagship station, as technology and environmental reporter in 2007. Larson also is an anchor/reporter on 1010 WINS-AM radio. Previously, Larson was technology editor at WCBS-TV, appearing regularly on the 5-7 a.m. weekday morning news program, weekend and 5 p.m. weekday news. He also hosted 6 half-hour specials for the CBS station group and contributed to “The CBS Evening News” and CBS News “The Early Show.” In 2004, Larson received an Emmy award for a piece on the 50th anniversary of color television.
Beginning his broadcast career while still in college, Larson appeared on-air at KOHL-FM in California. He then went to 95.5 Magic 95 in Reno, Nevada. From there, Larson went to K-BIG 98.1 in San Francisco doing weekend overnights and later the 7 p.m-midnight shift. He later joined K101, and Oldies 99.7 KFRC-AM/FM, until moving down the dial (and San Francisco peninsula) to San Jose’s 94.5 KBAY — where he handled the drive time shift on weekdays.
In 1999, Larson joined Macworld magazine in San Francisco as an assistant editor, making regular appearances on ZDTV, which later became TechTV. He eventually joined TechTV full-time, co-hosting “Fresh Gear,” “Call for Help” and contributing regularly to “TechLive” the half-hour tech news program.

A Sneak Peak at My Next Book

cmomruncover.jpgOkay…so I admit I am the worst person in the world to keep secrets. So I’m going to let the cat of the bag. I’m working on my next book and am so beyond excited about how great it’s going to be. It’s called C:// Mom Run and it’s going to be a humor anthology featuring essays from some of the funniest mom authors, syndicated columnists and bloggers that I’ve had the pleasure of getting to know over the past few years.
While you may have heard of a few of them, what I can tell you is that these women are the Nora Ephron’s of our time. Every single one of them will share a story from their lives that some mom in our country (and probably abroad) will be able to totally relate to and laugh their sides off. I will share the names of our contributors soon, but in the meantime, take a look at some of the comments that were flying back and forth when I shared the book cover with them.
Many thanks to my publisher Julie Trelsted at Plain White Press who is embarking on this exciting journey with me and these fabulous women. While the book will be released this November, we’re actually going to be giving audiences a sneak peak this May when seven of our contributors appear at an event in New York City showcasing their incredible comedic writing talents. So strap on your seatbelts ladies, it’s going to be a wild ride! Oh…and if you want to listen in to a podcast of an essay I’m contemplating using in the book, then click on the video below and let me know what you think.
