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. Ehrlich has been honored for producing TV segments on a variety of topics, including Superstorm Sandy. His inspiration for the Race for the Cure special was his cousin Joanne Ehrlich, a cancer survivor.

Standout Segments 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
“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 to help women find help at a critical time in their life,” said Ehrlich.

Mayor’s Red-tape Team Touts Gains
Six months ago, Mayor Michael Bloomberg launched an initiative to re-imagine how city government works with small businesses.
The Business Customer Service Initiative is also trying to make it easier for business owners to avoid paying fines for simple violations. Last October, the office posted a video for restaurateurs about grease management. Now a sequel is online: a slick guide on how to mitigate noise complaints, which remain one of the gripes most often reported to 311.
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.

If You Know Suzy
By Kathrine Rosman
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
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 reports the sensational – accused murderers, rapists, and racists. In a time when the media feels that only negative stories sell, the public’s perception of athletes and sports organizations are predictably negative. There is another side to the story but it is rarely told.
As President of T-LINE TV, I produced the short documentary, “Citizenship Through Sports”. I have spent the past 16 years working in sports broadcasting and played sports throughout my childhood. For every one Mike Tyson there are 10 Al Leiters.
