      Bio

      Pat Piper has made a career learning something new. As a journalist in the news business, “something new” occurs every hour so he’s becoming an expert at understanding stuff he never thought about.

      Pat Piper ... a lifetime of sailing.

      Pat Piper … a lifetime of sailing and writing.

      Learning became a common word in “Future Talk: Conversations About Tomorrow” (Warner Books), the popular book he ghostwrote with Larry King as the world turned the calendar page from 1999 to a new millennium. “Learn how to learn and learn how to love new things,” suggests John Seely Brown, chief scientist at Xerox and one of the experts interviewed about what to expect and maybe more important, what to do to participate, in this new age. Pat has taken that advice.

      Currently an Executive Editor for Westwood One Radio, Pat decides the order of stories in hourly/half hourly newscasts, writes the stories when needed under a deadline and selects appropriate audio.

      At the controls of NBC Radio News -- Executive Editor Pat writes and produces NBC Radio hourly newscasts today from studios in Washington, DC.

      He has written for BoatUS Magazine and Diabetes Health magazine. He interviewed rocker Bret Michaels for a cover story in Diabetes Health about a rock and roll lifestyle and avoiding low blood sugar (he’s not always been successful at that). Hardball host Chris Matthews and Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler are others Pat has interviewed about how they face this disease that touches 8.3% of the population.

      Among decades of writing feature stories – often about colorful personalities – Pat wrote a popular cover story for Chesapeake Bay Magazine about Maryland Blue Crab guru Whitey Schmidt and how he selects a crab house (country music usually means a better crab than a place playing rock and roll although he hasn’t tried (yet) a crab house that offers Bach so the jury is out on music and crabs).

      Pat was co-author of "Anything Goes" with his long-time broadcasting colleague, Larry King.

      He also did a piece about the late Gilda Hinman who had a reputation of always catching more fish in her Chesapeake Scow than any other angler who had a huge boat with expensive tackle and electronic fish finders. Gilda said she knows the fish so she has no need for silly gadgets, or boats.

      He is the author/ghostwriter of eight books.

      In an earlier life, he produced the successful all-night Larry King Show for a decade on the Mutual Broadcasting System (photos from those days — and nights — can be seen in the photos section).

      Pat lives in Arlington, Virginia with his wife, Barbara, and their cat Peter. Yeah, there’s a story about the cat named Peter Piper.
