Introducing Betty LaMarr: Lights, Camera, Action!
Miss. Betty LaMarr excels in two qualities that contribute towards success in broadcasting and journalism: professionalism and charisma. This veteran TV host, producer and director has been a constant fixture in regional media since 1988, beginning with The Betty LaMarr Show on Comcast Cable 17 (formerly a Time Warner affiliate). The Betty Lamarr Show can still be seen twice weekly on Comcast Cable 17 in the Mid-South. As an executive producer, Ms. LaMarr works in a world that inspired the catch phrase "lights, camera, action!"
Blessed to sit in the company of some of the best and brightest, Ms. LaMarr has interviewed many celebrities. These luminaries include: Golden Globe winner Blair Underwood and Richard T.

Recently, Betty interviewed best-selling author, entrepreneur and talk show host, Mr. Tavis Smiley. Mr. Smiley visited Memphis on March 5th as part of a speaking tour that celebrates his 20 years in the broadcast industry. For this special occasion, Mr. Smiley takes a break from his usual role of interviewer and becomes the interviewee. No matter who or what the subject, Betty inevitably finds something unique and positive to share with her viewers and readers.
Why does Betty maintain such a strong focus on the positive? In today's world, where adversarial and negative interviews have become standard fare, Betty always approaches her interview subject with the utmost respect and regard. Betty's remarkable personal perspective and journalistic integrity have opened doors for her to speak with celebrities and noteworthy individuals in our society. She never takes for granted the pleasure and privilege she enjoys as an interviewer.
In the course of her life, Ms. LaMarr has exhibited that rare ability to create opportunity where little or none seems to exist. She founded her own clothing and fashion business which she operated successfully for 10 years. Later, at the time when her production company and other media projects began to require more attention, she sold her business. In whatever situation she faces, Betty believes strongly that God has blessed her with the tools she needs in her life. She has an infectious intensity and passion for life. Betty brings that intensity and passion to her productions and projects.
