Susan G. Komen – January 10, 2012
I just watched my video that you produced for the Susan G. Komen Survivor Portrait Gallery, and all I can say is ~ wow!!! The video is a home run!
I can’t thank you enough for volunteering your time with this awe-inspiring project.
I am so appreciative of this opportunity to speak publicly to raise awareness about breast cancer in young women and to share the critical importance of early mammogram detection. If just one life is saved from this project, then mission accomplished.
Thank you for putting the time, hard work and heart into not only my video, but all of the videos that you will produce in the future for other breast cancer survivors. Thank you for being so generous of heart and spirit by volunteering your talents for this worthy cause.
Karen Rein, Recent Breast Cancer Survivor, 37 years old
Tunnel to Towers – October 12, 2011
In case you didn’t believe me when I told you that the “Tunnel To Towers Run” broadcast was spectacular this year, I wanted to share with you the exciting news that a viewer in Los Angeles saw the broadcast of “Tunnel to Towers” and was so moved that he donated $450,000 to build a house for triple amputee, Marine Cpl. Juan Dominguez. We are going to build that home in Temecula California.
I can’t tell you what it means to the entire Siller family and Tunnel To Towers Foundation that your work was so inspirational that it significantly helped us on our road to fulfilling our mission of building homes for every quadruple and triple amputee that comes home from the war. Our goal is to build at least ten this year alone.
All of the broadcasts that you have produced with WCBS over the years have been heartfelt tributes to Stephen Siller, the 343 firefighters who perished and all of the heroes and victims of 9/11. The fact that the show aired nationally on the CBS station group was beneficial in fund raising from another source as well. Not to disregard the amazing work you have done over the years, but the NASCAR piece you produced this year really stood out and is still being talked about throughout the NASCAR and Lionel family. I am pleased to inform you that we are expecting to raise close to $200,000 due to the sales of die-cast cars which you featured during that segment and your piece was instrumental in getting the word out about the Honoring Our Heroes program.
In case you were not aware, we consider you an integral and valued part of the Tunnel To Towers Foundation family and I wanted to take a moment to thank you for your hard work over the years.
John Hodge, Director of Operations, Tunnel To Towers Foundation
You should know that I received an award for the video from the AAML at our recent annual meeting. The video will help thousands of people navigate the difficult, emotional process of obtaining a divorce.
I wanted to thank you for your directorial expertise and patience in working with Tamra Barney, who is well known in the world of reality TV, but is new to this type of production
The video exceeded all of my expectations and I appreciate your talents and that of your entire team. I was particularly impressed with your editing of the video..
I look forward to working with you on other projects and won’t hesitate in endorsing T-LINE TV to any other potential clients in the future!

I wanted to write to thank you from the bottom of my heart for the spectacular work you did on my new “sizzle real” PR video. Despite the crazy deadline we gave you, the video you created was beyond my wildest dreams. You took the mish-mash of all the videos and pictures we’ve collected over the last ten years and turned them into a professional, exciting, and compelling PR video. I’m anxious to get this out to my galleries and distributors as I think it will have an astounding effect when shown in conjunction with the sale of my artwork.
Thanks again and hopefully we’ll get the chance to work together again in the future.

“I want to thank you for working tirelessly on both the Komen Race for the Cure special and The Tunnel to Towers live broadcast. Even under tremendous deadlines – your calm under pressure, attention to detail and demand for excellence proved to all of us at WCBS just how gifted a producer you are.
It is rare to find a producer who understands and excels in all areas of television production. You have displayed the ability to execute scripted and live TV shows, effortlessly and without hesitation.
On the Komen Race for the Cure special, you were tasked with producing a scripted post-produced show that dealt with the very delicate subject of breast cancer. I was impressed with how you delivered such a compassionate and informative special. …. The reaction from WCBS, our viewers, and the Susan G. Komen for the Cure foundation was overwhelmingly positive.
Our live, two-hour, Tunnel to Towers broadcast utilized yet another set of your vast TV production skills. It’s not easy for one producer to handle 14 live cameras, 5 anchors in the field, thousands of runners, and constant changes and obstacles that continued to alter the timing of the show. Considering the Tunnel to Towers run only lasts about 17 minutes and we were on the air for two full hours – not only did you ‘pull it off’ – you delivered a compelling and inspirational broadcast.
I really enjoyed working with you to create two shows that were completely different in their challenges and yet both stellar broadcasts. I wouldn’t hesitate to work with you again on any TV project that I’m in charge of. You’re a true talent and a pleasure.”
Franca Braatz, Director Special Events News Operations, WCBS-TV

“I want to personally thank you for your many years of service to the CBS2 Sports Department. The dedication, professionalism and creativity you contributed to both “Sports Sunday” and “Sunday Blitz” have immensely enhanced the quality of the product we deliver to the viewer each and every week.
Your ability to book top-notch guests week-in and week-out helped to make both shows appointment viewing: Super Bowl XLII hero Justin Tuck, New York Knicks Guard Stephon Marbury, Boxing Champion Floyd Mayweather Junior…just to name a few. I still marvel at the fact you were able to book Dominic Chianese (Uncle Junior) on “Sports Sunday” the night the final Soprano’s aired. We were the talk of the town!”

He has a vision, direction and command of any show he produces, as well as the respect of his colleagues. When I am on the air it is my credibility on the line. I put my utmost faith and trust in Todd for his accuracy and thoroughness.”
Sam Ryan, Sports Anchor, WCBS-TV
WCBS-TV – February 8, 2008
“I have been working in the television industry for the past 15 years and have come across few people that can put themselves in a class by themselves, Todd is one of them. First off, let me say that Todd truly is a valuable asset! He understand the complexities of working in television today- patricianly sports.
I worked with Todd this past year at WCBS 2 both on “Sports Sunday” and the “Sunday Blitz”. Todd’s knowledge of the game along with his passion for his job made everyone else’s job easier!
But the biggest strength lies with his contacts… During this past season, we had so many different guests on our “Sunday Blitz” show that it kept the show fresh and much more lively. This was never more evident then during our coverage of the Giants Super Bowl Parade. Todd was able to talk to any player, at anytime, and get them to come on our air live! And it’s these abilities combined that make Todd a major player and an asset to anyone.”
John Discepolo, Sports Anchor, WCBS-TV
“I wanted to write to thank you for everything that you’ve done for WCBS. You have always done an outstanding job on our shows from “Sports from the Round Table” to “Steel City Showdown” to our live “Jets 24/7” shows.
I am immensely proud of the work that we produced together on “Sports Sunday”, “The Sunday Blitz” and “Steel City Showdown”. We took “Sports Sunday” from a concept to one of the best produced local sports shows in the country…Your tireless work on all aspects of the show was recognized by everyone. You were instrumental in overseeing the look of the set, graphics package and weekly content of the show.
It was a pleasure working with a likeminded professional that cares as deeply as I do about every aspect of the show”

WCBS-TV – February 1, 2005
Your work on “Sports from the Roundtable” has given the WCBS Sports Department a great amount of credibility in the New York sports community. With the caliber of guests we had on the show, from Brian Cashman to Phil Simms to the production value of the broadcast, “Sports from the Roundtable” has become the place to turn to when it comes to keeping up with the New York Sports scene.
You really showed your versatility during the production of “Steel City Showdown”. I also want to thank you for your work on the “Jets 24/7” show.”

WCBS-TV – January 31, 2004
“I can’t even begin to tell you what a pleasure it was to work with you on “Sports from the Roundtable”. You are by far the best producer I have ever worked with or been around (remember I grew up in the biz). You booked great guests from Andy Rooney to Carl Banks to Bernard King and many more. The show was action packed, with great pace, and was extremely intelligent. Your dedication to the task at hand and your easy going personality made everyone, including our guests excited about being part of the “Round Table”.

“Just wanted to drop you a line to let you know the highlight video for the women’s basketball team was great! The players and coaches loved it, and they are all asking for copies. I appreciate how your editing incorporated the entire season and how the music was a perfect fit.
I want to thank you for your professionalism throughout the project. You did an outstanding job given the difficulty we had in collecting the footage and the consequential time constraints.”

Let me say we appreciate your dedication. Keep it up!”

“I wanted to put in writing how much I appreciate all of your hard work, dedication and insight into producing our highlight tape “7th Heaven”. As I told you on the night of the Maryland Basketball Banquet, your tape was by far the best highlight tape we have ever had here at the University of Maryland.
…The value of the tape goes beyond the screening, as it will become one of our most potent recruiting tools.”
Gary Williams, Head Basketball Coach, Maryland Basketball

Thanks to you and your staff for the creative, quality work.”
