Mort Crim is the creator and voice of the award-winning radio series Second Thoughts, airing on more than 700 radio stations worldwide. The program's ninety-second motivational essays reflect Crim's belief that the world needs a break from the violent and the weird events exploited in much of the mainstream news media. He inspires with humor and personal anecdotes in his Second Thoughts program, emphasizing his belief in the positive aspects of human nature.

Crim draws on his knowledge of the human condition gained from 30 years of broadcasting experience. He was there at the Newark riots and the funeral of Robert Kennedy. He was in Vietnam with President Lyndon Johnson and at Cape Canaveral for most of the Apollo moon voyages, and he covered the Yom Kippur War in the Middle East.

He has also been on the spot and in the line of fire, reporting major events from Russia, Poland, Germany, Italy, Latin America, and the Middle East. The son of a minister, Crim once considered becoming a military chaplain. Instead, he became a journalist, a profession which, he believes, shares many of the values held by ministers and teachers. "We're all in the business of trying to make the world better through enlightenment," he says.

Second Thoughts is not Crim's first venture into uplifting human interest radio. He created a nationally syndicated series, One Moment Please, which aired on more than 350 radio stations in the 1970s. This highly successful series was a blend of philosophy, psychology, and personal experience fused into his own unique essay style.

He has been a broadcaster for stations from California to New York City, and for five years was a national correspondent for ABC. His was the voice that described Neil Armstrong's landing on the moon for the national ABC radio audience.

Crim was the permanent vacation substitute for Paul Harvey from 1980 to 1984. In this role, he was heard several weeks each year on more than 1,300 radio stations.

He is the author of three books, One Moment Please, a collection of his radio scripts; Like It Is, a journalist's view of how personal convictions apply to everyday life and to the major issues of the day; Take Off and Fly: Living Positive in a Negative World; and his most recent, Second Thoughts: One Hundred Upbeat Messages for Beat-Up Americans.

Crim was senior editor and anchor of the evening news at WDIV-TV in Detroit from 1978 to 1997, and he continues to serve as WDIV's vice president of community affairs. He has been outspoken on the need to elevate television news from the sensational to the truly significant. He believes human achievement and heroism should be given more air time to balance the reports of human failures and tragedy. His evening newscasts have twice been named by United Press International "Best Local TV Newscast in America."

His serves on the board of directors of The Kamanos Cancer Institute, Alma College, Junior Achievement, The Michigan Thanksgiving Day Parade, and Operation ABLE, and he is on the board of governors for the Detroit Renaissance Club. He is also a member of the General Aviation Committee.

Crim is a graduate of the University of Nebraska at Omaha, and he received his master's degree in journalism from Northwestern University's Medill School of Journalism. He has received scores of awards, including more than a dozen Emmys.

Besides his very active professional career, Crim also is a successful businessman who has founded two production companies. He currently is CEO of Mort Crim Communications, Inc.
