About the Author
Rolland G. Smith has over forty years of professional broadcast experience as an anchor, a reporter, producer and commentator. During his career he has been honored by the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences with 25 Emmy nominations and has received 11 Emmy Awards. Highlights of his 40 years in broadcasting include presidential interviews, front-line coverage of the Vietnam War, anchoring the international broadcast feed of “Live Aid” to an audience in excess of two billion, and being the first journalist to accompany the U.S. Geological Survey Team inside Mount St. Helens after the volcano’s devastating eruption. Along with his extensive experience in broadcasting, Mr. Smith has an expressed interest in global issues, including the future of the environment (both physical and spiritual). Highly sought after as a public speaker, his engagements often include readings from his poetry, in which he uses the magic of rhyme as an avenue to communicate his viewpoint. His first book of poetry, Quiet Musings, was nationally released in August 1995 and was soon followed by his first CD, Syl.la.bles, which combines beautiful original music with his poetry readings. His second book of poetry is entitled Encore: The Poetry of Nature.
