Miss America Tune-in Alert: Sam Haskell's Book Junket

Tomorrow, April 28, Miss America Organization Board Chairman, Sam Haskell, III will be featured on the TODAY Show between 8:30-9 a.m. EST* to talk about his new book, Promises I Made My Mother. Sam is also scheduled to make the following television appearances in the upcoming weeks:

...So many of you know of Sam's remarkable success in the entertainment industry and learned that in 2007 Sam was named by TV Week as “One of the 25 Most Innovative and Influential People in Television over the Last 25 Years.” His book spans his career from when Sam left Mississippi in 1978, and moved to Hollywood where he worked his way up from the mailroom through the ranks of the prestigious William Morris Agency to become Executive Vice President and Worldwide Head of Television.

You'll enjoy reading how Sam then became a personal agent and enjoyed friendships with Bill Cosby, Ray Romano, Dolly Parton, Kathie Lee Gifford, Lily Tomlin, His Royal Highness The Prince Edward, Debbie Allen, George Clooney, Will Smith, Morgan Freeman and Whoopi Goldberg. He has packaged some of the most successful shows on television, including Everybody Loves Raymond, Who Wants to Be a Millionaire, Murphy Brown, Fresh Prince of Bel Air, King of Queens, Las Vegas and Lost.

Some of you may think I have a bad attitude, but I have to admit, a couple weeks ago when I first read the press release about Sam's new book, my reaction was, "what the...?" His press junket is far better than that of Miss America after she's crowned and if he's so well connected, then why has Miss America been reduced to TLC?
