Eisen's story is a story of someone who fell -- like the TV commercial -- but got up. At 19, he entered the world of broadcasting as a top 40 DJ. By the time he was 25 he had more holes in his resume than a slice of Swiss cheese. The comic book fantasy of a young reporter on a mission to save the world as Superman catapulted him into the Fourth Estate.
He worked for three of the nation's top dailies until —like dinosaurs — newspapers one by one began to die. The survivor instinct carried this veteran reporter to a new line of work: He became a spokesman for two popes and shared a bowl of chicken soup with Mother Teresa, events that changed the course of his life. His is the story of how this kid from Brooklyn, a failed DJ, turned some bad lemons into lemonade, a story that resonates with those who have struggled with failure and success. Ed's programs have been reviewed by readers of The Philadelphia Inquirer, The National Catholic Reporter, The Jewish Exponent, The Bucks County Courier Times and on public radio and TV.
