Ehrlich Earns Nomination for Komen

Todd Ehrlich [“Standout Segments,” April 2016] received his 17th New York Emmy Awards nomination for his The Komen Race for the Cure special, in the 2016 Health/Science: Program/Special category. The show highlighted the efforts for the Susan G. Komen Greater New York City’s efforts to raise money for breast cancer research.

His inspiration for the Race for the Cure special was his cousin Joanne Ehrlich, a cancer survivor.

Englewood’s Emmy-Winning Broadcast Producer Is A Passionate Storyteller

Even when he is buried in a mountain of work, like today, logging 11-hour days prepping 70 Emmy submissions for CBS Sports, Todd Ehrlich is never to busy to take a call from someone with a great story to tell. As president of New York City-based T-LINE TV (tlinetv.com), the award-winning broadcast producer has carved out a career bringing inspiring, sometimes gut-wrenching, stories to the screen.

His Emmy-winning works include WCBS-TV’s 9/11 special Tunnel to Towers and Race for the Cure, a prelude show to a Susan G. Komen race event, as well as the network’s team coverage of Superstorm Sandy.

“I don’t ever have a typical day, in any way, ever,” smiles the Englewood native, who founded his company 20 years ago and has since won three Emmy Awards, garnered 16 nominations and received more than 90 international awards for its production work. His projects range from broadcast television segments and documentaries to corporate videos, commercials to social media campaigns for clients including WCBS-TV, NCAA Basketball, Major League Soccer and Nasdaq.

Believing that “each and every client has a very specific story to tell,” he takes a hands-on approach to every project. “With a bigger company, the talent gets diluted but I have the luxury of cherry-picking the people who work on each aspect of a project and, of course, I direct, write and fully produce each one,” explains Ehrlich.

To produce award-worthy work, he turns to a top-tier team – including editors, cameramen, musicians, graphic artists and on-air talent –to match the tone of every project to his available talent. Amassed over decades in the industry, his Rolodex of talent includes such well-known names as Dr. Max Gomez, Duke Castiglione and Kirstin Cole.

Companies turn to him because they can count on his full attention and expert analysis. His current project, for example, goes well beyond editing Emmy submissions for CBS Sports. “They didn’t win any last year so first I looked at every segment they entered, watched every segment that ultimately won and produced a 35-page report on how to improve their chances.”

A graduate of University of Maryland, where he earned a degree in Radio, TV and Film, Ehrlich has always been a sports lover. “When I got an opportunity to work for The George Michael Sports Machine, all of a sudden I realized my avocation and vocation could be the same thing.” He interned at five different stations during college before moving back to the tri-state area to work as a production assistant for WPIX in New York City.

He was recently one of five Dwight-Englewood School graduates invited back for a panel discussion with alumni who are giving back to the community. A highlight he shared was a segment he produced for “Eye On New York” on WCBS-TV featuring “Sopranos” actor Dominic “Uncle Junior” Chianese and his “Joy Through Art” program.

“Once a week, he performs at nursing homes in New York, singing, talking to them, becoming part of their extended family,” Ehrlich says.

“Using my vocation and skills to make an tangible impact is exceedingly gratifying,” he says. His annual “Race For The Cure” special “gives me a chance to talk about the Susan G. Komen fundraising effort, tell people how they can get involved, how the money is spent and provide support for uninsured women. The focus is about surviving and thriving after breast cancer,” he explains. “It’s a powerful special that includes tips from women who’ve been there. I hope it helps them stay strong in their fight.”

A previous “Race For The Cure” show, which garnered an Emmy Award, was especially inspiring to Ehrlich. “It featured a young woman named Karen Rein who was 36 and had no family history of breast cancer and no detectable lumps. Her doctor suggested having a routine baseline mammogram and she was diagnosed with breast cancer. She told me if she had waited until she was 40, she would have been in the fight of her life,” he says. “She is cancer-free today and often speaks about the importance of early detection. Having the opportunity to tell her story was incredible. She called me after the segment aired and told me ‘Tonight we saved someone’s life.’”

Next up for the producer? “I’ll be finishing a music app that combines a game with music discovery, completing a fully animated commercial real estate video for a client, and continuing to develop a documentary with [writer and director] Roberto Monticello on Cuban baseball.”

On the rare day he’s not working, Ehrlich might be found on a local golf course but even then, work is never too far from his mind. “I love golf and, believe it or not, a lot of business is done on the course and at every meeting, there is someone who plays,” he says. “People in my business are passionate about it and, the best thing is, you don’t have to be great at it, but you need great etiquette and you need to be able to tell some great stories.”

On that, Ehrlich is well covered.

Englewood Native Earns Emmy Nomination

Three-time Emmy Award winning producer Todd Ehrlich, an Englewood, New Jersey native, was nominated for an Emmy in the 59th Annual New York

Three-time Emmy Award winning producer Todd Ehrlich, an Englewood, New Jersey native, was nominated for an Emmy in the 59th Annual New York Emmys. This is Ehrlich’s 17th Emmy nomination. Ehrlich was nominated for “Race for the Cure”. The special aired on WCBS TV prior to the Komen 24th annual race in the New York City. “Race for the Cure” was nominated in the Health/Science Program Special Category.
13,000 people jammed into Central Park to raise money to support national research programs, and local community programs that provide free screening, treatment services, mental health support and education for under-insured and under-served New York area women. The show combined features on free programs, the latest medical advances and inspirational words of encouragement for all breast cancer survivors watching at home while preparing for the race. All produced to lift the spirit of survivors and their families as they battle cancer.
Maurice DuBois and Kristine Johnson hosted the special from the Boat House in Central Park. Dr. Max Gomez provided cutting edge lifesaving medical information about immunotherapy to fight breast cancer. Dr. Max also shared new information for women with metastatic breast cancer. Alice Gainer shared information about where to find free reki classes, make up specifically created for cancer patients and free scarfs that provide a stylish solution to hair loss due to chemotherapy. Mary Calvi detailed two important free programs funded by Komen, God’s Love We Deliver and Independent Care Systems. ICS offers assistants to women with disabilities during screening and treatment. Dana Tyler described Alloro, a high-end clothing line developed by a breast cancer survivor for breast cancer survivors. On the program, fashion designer Betsey Johnson, movie star Gabriel Union, and musical sensation Cindi Lauper all lent their voices in support of the cause.
Komen Greater New York City focuses on three main areas, funding research, early detection and finding a cure. One in eight women suffer from breast cancer. Here in the greater New York area Komen has raised 60 million dollars since 1990. 25% of the funds raised went to national research to find a cure and 75% stayed in area to fund programs providing care to local women. Last year alone, $2,000,000 went to 27 local organizations where 130,000 women received free breast health services.
“It’s an honor to be recognized with an Emmy nomination for work that Komen is doing for area women fighting breast cancer and their families. This is a responsibility that I take very seriously and it warms my heart to be able help women find help at a critical time in their life,“ said Ehrlich, “Like so many people in the area breast cancer has touched my life. My cousin, Joanne Ehrlich is a strong inspirational survivor who is making a difference for area women.”
Turning tragedy into triumph, Joanne Ehrlich started a charity called “Heel the Soul”. Partnering with Englewood Hospital, Joanne is using her experience and knowledge of what patients need in hospitals to create and distribute comfort bags to women with cancer. You can support, Heel the Soul on April 7th at Neiman Marcus at Garden State Plaza from 7-9pm.
The Marriott Marquis, Times Square, hosts the New York Emmy Awards on March 19. It is the fifth time that Ehrlich was nominated for producing this yearly WCBS special. Ehrlich won his first Emmy for Race For The Cure.

Emotional Independence Day for Injured Veterans Earns 16th Emmy Nomination for N.J. Native Todd Ehrlich

NEW YORK – Englewood, N.J., native Todd Ehrlich is a force to be reckoned with when it comes to excellence in television. Ehrlich’s latest gem, the live 9/11 special Tunnel to Towersaired locally on WCBS-TV and on CBS affiliates across the country. The Independence Day feature from the show was the recipient of the prestigious New York Emmy Nomination in the Human Interest Program Feature/Segment category. Ehrlich, President of T-LINE TV, is the Executive Producer of the show and garnered his 16th Emmy nomination for his work. He is a three time recipient of the presigious Emmy Award.
In the heralded Tunnel to Towers feature, reporter Amy Dardashtian spent Independence Day with triple and quadruple amputee veterans. This emotional day started at the 9/11 memorial and ended on the Intrepid with a perfect view of the fireworks.
Imagine you were so moved by the events of 9/11 and that your love of your country was so pure that you were willing to give up everything to protect your homeland. You are young, vital and in the best shape of your life. Nothing is out of reach. Now imagine you return from overseas in a wheelchair and dependent on friends and family to help you with your basic daily needs. Reaching for a glass to get a drink of water or getting to your bedroom at the top of the staircase in your home requires assistance.
“I stepped directly on an IED in Kandahar Province during patrol and mid-thigh down was totally vaporized. I tried to go back to my house in North Carolina. I couldn’t get into some rooms because the door was too small because of my wheelchair, to go up the stairs I had to crawl up the stairs. It wasn’t a quality of life anyone should be living” said U.S. Army Specials Forces Captain, Ben Harrow. “To know that I’ll be able to get around and have my independence to be able to do things on my own and not be a burden to someone else, that I still get that pride back that I had when I was in the military, it’s going to be a good thing for me.”
The 18 men featured in the Emmy Nominated segment went from having an entire country depending on them for our freedom to them depending on people for even their most basic needs. These strong willed men spent July 4th together sharing love of country and personal secrets to overcoming their shared disabilities.
“It’s really nice to be able to relate to how people do things,” said Marine Sgt. Ben Tomlinson. “It’s a real learning experience for me asking guys how they do certain things that I have difficulty with and handling situations that aren’t as easy as they use to be.”
These men are bonded by their love of country, their service, and their sacrifice. Together they have had to overcome similar obstacles so that each of them is uniquely qualified to understand the difficulties of the others.
The Tunnel to Towers foundation is building each of these men a custom home to restore their sense of independence. These smart homes are built with the latest technology to allow them to take care of their daily needs with the assistance of an iPad. They can lower shelves, turn on lights and access everything they need daily. These men were rendered dependent in the war but spent our country’s birthday celebrating our independence as a country and theirs as individuals thanks to Tunnel to Towers Foundation.
“In one word that’s suitable for today, I would choose ‘independence’. I’m moving forward with a new identity and accepting the life I have to live,” said Army Staff Sgt. Matthew Lammers. “I love a good challenge and I’m very optimistic about the future. This is a good family atmosphere to be around.”
“I started this life-changing day at 7am at the 9/11 memorial and ended it on the Intrepid a different person with a renewed outlook on life,” said Ehrlich. “These 18 brave men face almost insurmountable obstacles doing common everyday things around the house. Yet their strength, positive outlook, and perseverance inspired me and gave me a new perspective on my own life. The time spent with them left me feeling as if there were no challenges that I could not overcome. Winning this Emmy Award would stand as a testament to these 18 men, their irrepressible spirit, and the Tunnel To Towers Foundation.”
The New York Emmy Awards will be held at the Marriot Marquis, Times Square, on May 2, 2015.

EHRLICH, WCBS NAB NY EMMY

T-LINE TV president Todd Ehrlich and the WCBS TV news team won a New York Emmy Award for team coverage during Super Storm Sandy.
Ehrlich worked as a producer during the storm coverage, helping to bring the most up-to-date video to air as it came into the newsroom.
“I’m honored to be a small part of the best team in the business to bring that information to the New York market,” said Ehrlich, who has won three Emmy awards in 15 nominations.

TV: ENGLEWOOD NATIVE HONORED FOR COVERAGE OF SUPERSTORM
Englewood native Todd Ehrlich (pictured) recently won a New York Emmy Award for team coverage of Superstorm Sandy.
Ehrlich was a producer during WCBS TV/Channel 2’s coverage of the storm. He shot flooding from the East River and captured a car that was submerged at the intersection of West 57th Street and West Side Highway. Ehrlich has now won three Emmy Awards and has earned 15 nominations.
“I’m honored to be a small part of the best team in the business to bring that information to the New York Market. This year’s Emmy Award may be the most treasured of the three I have won because it encompasses the entire station.”

Todd Ehrlich added another statue to his collection on Sunday night when he won the New York Emmy Award for Team Coverage: Super Storm Sandy. He and the WCBS TV news team garnered the award for coverage of Hurricane Sandy — the worst storm to hit the tri-state area in over a century. WCBS TV revolutionized storm coverage with their Mobil Weather Lab and the use of Mobil 2 which allows viewers to see – in real time — how the weather is affecting a much larger area. The around the clock coverage earned WCBS TV 3 Emmy Nominations: Breaking News Coverage – Super Storm Sandy, Team Coverage – Super Storm Sandy and News Excellence – Super Storm Sandy.
Ehrlich, who grew up in Englewood, served as a producer during the coverage helping to bring the most up-to-date video to air as it came into the newsroom. He was the first on the scene to shoot the now famous “doll house” in Chelsea. The facade of the apartment building had come off totally making it appear like a life-sized doll house. It was a very dangerous assignment as debris was being blown around by gale-force winds. Ehrlich also shot flooding from the East River which made its way to 2nd Avenue on the Eastside, and captured a car that was submerged at the intersection of West 57th Street and West Side Highway as the Hudson River also overflowed into the city. The triple responsibility of working in the control room, shooting, and producing video packages of the storm made the award very special to Ehrlich. This is Ehrlich’s third Emmy.
During any major weather event viewers turn to their television sets to get the most up-to-date information. The round the clock coverage featured evacuation news, the latest forecasts, and a look at the damage the storm had done to the entire New York Metropolitan area.
“I’m honored to be a part of the best team in the business to bring that information to the New York market.” Ehrlich said after receiving the Emmy Award.  “This year’s Emmy Award may be the most treasured of the three that I have won because it encompasses the work of the entire station.” 
Todd Ehrlich has now won 3 Emmy Awards and has earned 15 nominations.

TV SPECIAL ABOUT RUN INSPIRED BY STATEN ISLAND 9/11 FIREFIGHTER STEPHEN SILLER UP FOR EMMY
STATEN ISLAND, NY

Frank Siller is hoping that the Emmy Awards ceremony on March 30 will be another impressive benchmark in the posthumous life of his brother, fallen 9/11 firefighter Stephen Siller.
WCBS-TV’s “Tunnel to Towers Special” is once again nominated in the “Best Society Concerns Show” category (it took home the gold last year) for its coverage of the annual run dedicated to military and first responders who “make the supreme sacrifice of life and limb for our country.”
“We are truly blessed that WCBS-TV honors our annual run by televising it all around the country,” says Frank, chairman of the 12-year-old Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation.
“And the fact that a program about a run — which draws 30,000 people in honor of my brother and first responders — is so outstanding the Emmys have singled it out for recognition, is extremely gratifying.”
Todd Ehrlich, the producer-writer behind the nominated program, said T2T’s ongoing mission to build “smart” homes for catastrophically injured military as a result of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan motivated his work.
“The work of the foundation makes my job very easy to produce compelling television,” says Ehrlich. “I consider myself very lucky to be able to work with such an amazing organization.”
“The T2T Run & Walk is one of the most meaningful community events that we have the privilege of broadcasting each year,” says Peter Dunn, who oversees 29 broadcast affiliates nationwide as the president of CBS Television Stations.
“This year’s Emmy nomination provides another reminder of just how special this event is and all the good that comes from honoring the memory of Stephen Siller and all of the brave first responders in the tri-state area.”
Featured prominently in the special were interviews with FDNY Commissioner Sal Cassano and former Mayor Rudolph Giuliani, who commented on the success of the T2T Run: “It is both sad and uplifting what the Siller family has done.”
Footage of the 30,000 who participated in the annual run — including thousands of West Point cadets who ran in formation; profiles of catastrophically injured military heroes who received “smart homes” built by the T2T Foundation; and service members who participated in a T2T Run in Afghanistan.
Also highlighted was Ned Wallace, president of Wallace Air Cargo Group, who donated $450,000 toward the building of a “smart” home after seeing a T2T Run broadcast on the CBS affiliate in Los Angeles.

The video recommends restaurants and clubs with noise violations to work with “an acoustical consultant,” install a limiter compressor to the sound system, soundproof doors and walls, install sound-isolating treatments to floors or walls, and use directional loudspeakers.

Todd Ehrlich Interviewed about Jeremy Lin’s Impact in the USA

「尼克隊的記者室,已經有十來年沒有這種陣仗了。」跑尼克隊新聞快二十六年的WCBS電視台製作人陶德(Todd Ehrlich)對我們說。

I haven’t see this many reporters in this press room in decades.

WCBS producer Todd Ehrlich said, who has covered the Knicks for more than 26years.

主跑尼克隊新聞近二十六年的WCBS電視台製作人陶德(Todd Ehrlich)分析,林書豪成功的三大特質是用腦袋打球、努力、謙虛,特別是謙虛,是林書豪在尼克隊成功的最重要因素。

WCBS producer Todd Ehrlich, who has covered the Knicks for more than a quarter of a century, points out; “Jeremy Lin has three elements that has make him successful- he plays smart, works hard and is humble. His humility may be his most important characteristic.

在美國文化裡,所有人從小就被教育,你要成為最好、最好、最好(the best of the best of the best)的人,從來不講求謙虛,也就不會在乎別人。」陶德說,因此尼克隊千萬身價的球星,他們只懂得為自己打球,而忘記了別人。

American culture creates an environment where their elite young athletes strive to be the best of the best. The focus isn’t about team, or being humble, it fosters the creation of  a “me first” athletes who focus on themselves and not the team. Todd suggested that this may be why some of the Knicks’ million dollar players put themselves and their stats in front of team goals.

Todd Ehrlich, who runs New York production company T-LINE TV, celebrated an Emmy Award win after working with WCBS-TV to produce “Race for the Cure,” a prelude show to a Susan G. Komen New York City race event.

The show won the Emmy for Best Health/Science Special on April 18.

“It isn’t often in my career where I have been able to work on a project that had the potential to positively effect so many people,” said Ehrlich, who dedicated the award to his cousin, Joanne, a cancer survivor and Komen supporter, as well as his grandfather, Jerome Schein, who died days before the win.

The hour-long special, featuring women from CBS-TV like Dr. Holly Phillips, Dana Tyler and Cindy Hsu, looked at breast cancer survivors and advances in fighting the disease. It covered fashions for breast cancer patients, wig makers, and alternative treatments, among other content.

I have written a book called “If You Knew Suzy,” and to coincide with its debut (tomorrow), I decided to make a book trailer… Last week, my brother-in-law Todd Ehrlich – it’s nice to have television and video producer in the family – we shot the rest of the video … the part where I talk about the book, what my motives were in writing and why I think people will like it. I slathered on tons of makeup and Todd and Jon Tortora (an editor/cameraman) put up lights that took at least 3 years off my age. When I was leaving, I handed to Jon a thumb-drive filled with photos and reminded them that I had previously emailed them my ten “Suzy videos.”

“I’m not sure we want to use all ten,” Todd said. (What?!) “In television there is a rule of three,” he said, “and I think six is plenty.” So some of my Suzys – after all their efforts and the nudging they withstood – ended up on the trailer’s cutting room floor.

The Denny Farrell Story »

By Elizabeth Benjamin

Here’s a tribute video that played at last week’s farewell reception for Assemblyman Herman “Denny” Farrell Jr., who recently ended his reign as the longest-serving chairman of the Manhattan Democratic Party.

The video runs over 12 minutes, which stands to reason, since Farrell’s career has spanned so many years. It’s full of interesting historical tid-bits about New York Democratic politics and is worth a watch when you have some time.

There are cameo appearances from Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver, a longtime Farrell ally; and former Gov. Mario Cuomo, who recalls the boost he got from Farrell’s early endorsement of him in 1982 against Mayor Ed Koch. (Farrell actually called a second vote of the county organization, which had initially supported the mayor).

“If it weren’t for Denny I would not have gotten support,” Cuomo says. “And as a matter of fact, I’m not sure anyone in the party other than Denny wanted me.”
“The general recollection I have of it is that, if anything, they probably would have preferred Koch. They weren’t crazy about Koch, either. But I think it was Denny who simply insisted that, not that it not be Koch, but that it should be Cuomo.”
“If I didn’t have him, I wouldn’t have had Manhattan and probably wouldn’t have won. Incidentally, he reminded me of that from time to time.”

Good Citizens in Sports Still an Untold Story

By Todd Ehrlich

Americans have the impression that modern athletes are felons, drug addicts and greedy spoiled rich kids. Why? Because the media mainly report the sensational – accused murderers, rapists and racists. In a time when the media apparently feel that only negative stories sell, the public’s perceptions of athletes and sports organizations are predictably negative.

Here is another side to the story… For every one Mike Tyson, there are ten Al Leiters. Al Leiter, the all star pitcher for the New York Mets, has established a charitable organization called Leiters Landings…
