Bryan Adams Goes Back to Basics with Covers Album: See Him Perform 'Many Rivers to Cross'

30 September 2014 10:40 AM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

New album 'Tracks of My Years' is out Sept. 30.

Bryan Adams is getting back to his roots.

For his first studio album since 2008's Eleven, the Grammy winner is releasing Tracks of My Years on September 30. The album does feature one original song ("She Knows Me," co-written by Adams and longtime collaborator Jim Vallance), but it's otherwise completely composed of time-honored classics from the '50s, '60s and '70s. Among the tracks featured on the album's deluxe version is a cover of Jimmy Cliff's 1969 song "Many Rivers to Cross."

Peabody Awards Underline the Radical Changes in Electronic Media

18 May 2014 4:59 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

On May 19, Peabody Awards will be handed out to 46 winners, the most in our 73-year history. Awards are not given in categories, for specific performances or production tasks. The sole criterion for winning is excellence in storytelling.

So why the unprecedented number of winners? Is there more excellent content than ever before? The answer is yes. The volume of quality storytelling has increased exponentially in the digital era.

And the Peabody board discovered numerous factors and forces at work in the nearly 1,100 submissions:

 New market conditions: We witnessed numerous new programming entities, many driven by the altered economic landscape for media. Internet subscription channels such as Netflix (winner for “House of Cards” and “Orange is the New Black”) are examples of how the economics of distribution can change programming decisions and storytelling options. Al Jazeera America (with two wins in its “Fault Lines” series) showed that a strong financial commitment to quality journalism from deep-pocketed, »

Peabody Awards: Tom Brokaw Shines In Stellar Last Act

16 May 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Tom Brokaw spent more than 20 years in a pitched three-way battle as anchor of the “NBC Nightly News.” Yet his greatest legacy, frankly, might be how classily he has defined what the transition to emeritus status can look like.

Since gracefully handing the anchor reins to Brian Williams in 2004, Brokaw has remained a welcome presence on NBC, but has branched out beyond that — writing books devoted to “The Greatest Generation,” a demographic TV hardly chases; and hosting documentaries for various channels.

Networks always talk about keeping such personalities in the family, but it rarely happens. Brokaw’s last act elegantly bucks that trend.
