 Mort Crim Biography

Mort Crim is creator and host of the award winning radio series, Second Thoughts, now airing on over 11,000 stations nationwide. From 1978 - 1997, Mort was Senior Editor and Anchor of the evening news at WDIV-TV in Detroit, Michigan. For five years, he was a national correspondent for ABC news in New York and from 1980 - 1984 was Paul Harvey's backup newscaster.

As a celebrated journalist, radio personality and news anchorman, Mort Crim provides a positive perspective on a world persistently portrayed by the media as both negative and dangerous. He offers solid reasons for optimism and direction to a society that seems to have lost its compass and gives reasons for hope to a country that is anxious about its future. Using wit, humor and plain talk, Mort reminds his audience about what’s truly important in life.

In 1995 he was awarded the Gold World Medal as Best Radio Personality at the New York Festivals International Radio Awards, and in 1996 he received the silver medal for Best Radio Humor Worldwide, New York International Festivals, 1996.

As a major network news correspondent, Mr. Crim covered the Newark riots, the funeral of Robert Kennedy, and the Apollo moon voyages. As a broadcaster, Mr. Crim visited Vietnam with President Lyndon Johnson.

Among his numerous awards for broadcast journalism and commentary, Mr. Crim has received eight Emmys. In 1997 he received the Society of Professional Journalists "Lifetime Achievement" Award.

Mr. Crim is the author of many books, including Second Thoughts: One Hundred Upbeat Messages for Beat-Up Americans, based on Crim's current radio series; One Moment Please, a collection of his radio scripts; and Like It Is, a journalist's view of how personal convictions apply to everyday life and to the major issues of the day. Mort Crim’s latest book, Good News for a Change! gives readers a positive, motivating view of everyday events, through true stories that have great lessons. In these 84 short messages, Mort applies a positive view to contemporary concerns and issues.

Mort's common sense philosophy always strikes a chord: He’s in demand by Fortune 500 companies, professional associations and universities, where his poignant stories and "can-do" attitude often bring audiences to their feet.

"As a newsman, I have interviewed some of the most interesting, famous, and powerful people in the world. I have reported on events that nudged the course of history. Viewing events from a spiritual perspective has helped me make sense of a world where so much seems senseless."

If you ever heard the Apollo 11-moon landing reported on the ABC Radio Network, then you heard Mort Crim. For 35 years his warm style of illustrating the news with poignant stories have made listeners think twice.
