I've taught film and television studies at the University of Alabama since 1980 and been a visiting professor at the University of Arizona. I've been involved with college and Public radio since 1972 and currently host "All Things Acoustic" on Alabama Public Radio. On June 1, 2020, I retired from full-time teaching and became a professor emeritus, although I plan to continue teaching in a part-time capacity. User:FloridaArmy was kind enough to create a Wikipedia article about me on September 7, 2020.

I'm the author of The Sitcom (NY: Routledge, 2019),[1] Television Style (NY: Routledge, 2010),[2] Television: Visual Storytelling and Screen Culture, 5th edition (New York: Routledge, 2018; formerly titled, Television: Critical Methods and Applications)[3] and the editor of Star Texts: Image and Performance in Film and Television (Detroit: Wayne State University Press, 1991).[4]

My previous encyclopedia-writing experience was for the Encyclopedia of Television.[5]
