Professor Keith Forrest to Share Experiences from E! Entertainment Television Oct. 16

October 4, 2012

Atlantic Cape Community College communication professor Keith Forrest of Collingswood will share his experiences working as a writer and producer for E! Entertainment Television, 12:30-1:45 p.m., Tuesday, Oct. 16, in room A-146, at Atlantic Cape’s Mays Landing Campus, 5100 Black Horse Pike.

Forrest began working at E! in 1991, a few months after the network launched. He worked on the talk show “The Inside Word,” and served as a writer and producer for “E! News Daily” until his departure in 1995.

During his experience at E!, Forrest covered movie premieres and interviewed celebrities, including: Academy Award winner Dustin Hoffman, singer Madonna and the cast of the TV series “Seinfeld.” 

“That time in Los Angeles taught me a lot about the realities of television and the entertainment business: It’s not all that glamorous. It’s a lot of hard work,” Forrest said.

Forrest is the co-creator of Atlantic Cape’s communication degree program. He brings a piece of Hollywood to Atlantic Cape each spring through the annual Communication and Art Awards Show.
