Dawn of Golden TV

Seven-time Emmy and Golden Globe award winner Alan Alda said, “Some of the greatest things, as I understand, they have come about by serendipity, the greatest discoveries.” This statement is true in the case of Evan Golden. In the history of his successful career as a print and television model, and entertainment and sport reporter, serendipity played a major role. For Evan, it was a young man’s dream come true and for the rest of the entertainment industry, it was the dawn of golden TV so to speak.


Dawn of Golden TV

Why Golden TV?

I personally don’t watch TV often. When I do, I choose channels that entertain me or shows of my interests; movies, cooking shows, documentaries, or even cartoons.

I skip most channels which I think does not contribute to my well-being. In my opinion, most shows are just taking so much air time but not delivering quality. In short, you sit there and it makes you waste your time.

Before you know it, that’s an hour (or more) of your time spent not learning anything nor being entertained. You sit there and wonder, “What did I just watch?”

Sad to say, young people---especially the children--- are sometimes left alone or allowed by their parents or guardians to watch on their own.

Curiosity or poor judgment may lead them to watch TV shows that are too much for their young minds.

Media is such a huge and powerful influence in forming minds, developing behaviour and educating the public. TV is one accessible tool that can do all that.

Evan Golden offers edutainment. In his own wise words, Evan said “Edutainment is a form of entertainment designed to educate as well as to amuse.”

Getting educated does not have to be boring, and that’s how Evan delivers his shows.

I’m at this point in my life where if something does not make me happy, wise or wealthy in one way or another, I don’t have time for it.

If you turn on your cable TV, you have hundreds of choices of which show to watch. Even with sports or talk shows, you can choose whose interview you would want to see.

Here’s who to look for when watching interviews and shows: Evan Golden. This guy knows how to add value to what he does which in turn adds value to the time of the people watching him.

Evan Golden

I’ve mentioned serendipity playing a major role in Evan Golden's life. Although he loves the camera since college and did some co-hosting programs in his school, it was only by chance that he got discovered and started his career as a TV personality.

He was accompanying his sister for an audition for MTV. Expert eyes of MTV producers saw a star in Evan and asked him to audition for a special with actress, singer and dancer Carmen Electra. He did audition and not surprisingly got the part.

As they say, the rest is golden TV history.


He appeared on different shows like Trigger Happy, The Mandy Moore Show and Wanna Come In on MTV.

He’s most recognized when he appeared on reality show Ivana Young Man hosted by Ivana Trump.

Aside from being a print model, he also appeared on advertisements like Ovaltine (More Ovaltine please?!), Walt Disney Wilderness Lodge, Bowman’s Online Sports, Orange, E! and Rockstar Energy Drink.

You can see Evan interviewing big shots in the entertainment and sports industry.

Now he’s a successful TV producer and host of Eye on South Florida.



Golden Heart

Aside from his entertainment---or rather edutainment career, Evan is also a philanthropist. He is giving back and supporting charities like Meadow’s Movement. In honor of the memory of Meadow Pollack, a former student at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School who was shot with other 17 students and staff members.

Conclusion

Nowadays, everyone can seem host and run their own shows. Needless to say, the competition for being the best is tough.

The good thing is viewers are now also getting picky and smarter. They don’t just watch to be entertained, they watch to learn too. They know that every second spent is an opportunity for learning. And that’s where edutainment becomes a standard when looking for something to pass your time.

Thank goodness that nowadays, there are not just empty shows or junk for the public viewing’s consumption. If you dig a little deeper, you’ll find gold. If you’re wondering where, look no farther -->  Golden TV.
