Tim Brooks: TV historian Announces Retirement

Historians in the News

Award-winning television historian Tim Brooks, whose seminal book The Complete Directory to Prime Time Network and Cable TV Shows, 1946-Present is considered the pre-eminent industry reference work, will conclude his remarkable 30-plus-year career as a research executive when he retires as Lifetime Networks' Executive Vice President of Research at the end of 2007.

Brooks, whose career has spanned senior positions at NBC, USA Networks and NW Ayer, joined Lifetime in January 2000. His many accomplishments include an American Book Award for The Complete Directory (the ninth edition will be out this fall) and a 2007 Grammy Award for Best Historical Album for the CD adaptation of his book Lost Sounds, which profiled the role of African- Americans in the earliest years of the recording industry.
