A lot of my comedy is to do with being angry, then finding a way to channel that.
My character Pinky Bua was very popular and I had a contract with the channel. When they told me that I can continue with the role, I stayed back. However, I wasn’t getting any creative satisfaction.

On ‘Nip/Tuck,’ I was a Nazi, so basically for, like, six months. I went into this place where I was wearing a lot of black. Everyone has a dark side, and I can channel that.

Daisy May Cooper
I would say the film world has stopped operating as one. We have divided it into Hindi movies, Bengali movies, Tamil movies and so on. Earlier, there was only one channel and we all knew what was going on. Today, it is hard to keep track of programmes due to the advent of regional channels.
Mithun Chakraborty
You can channel a lot within a comic framework, and I think ‘The Guard‘ had a lot going on outside of the comedy, which is satisfying.
I was around when there was only one channel and when that second channel arrived, it came with the wonderful world of Disney on a Sunday night. We would drop our bicycles and run home to see it, it was just pure escapism.

One day I’d love to release a coffee table book of all the crazy notes I got from Disney Channel’s S&P and legal department.

There are lots of ways to be a feminist. Beyonce, for example, is a beautiful example of feminine sensuality and is still really powerful.

In the direct-to-consumer channel, we continue to look at the entire world as an extension opportunity for all of our brands.

Added to the rooster of courses, ‘Tiger Woods 10′ adds in seven new courses from the pristine Bethpage Black, home of this year’s U.S. Open, to the legendary Pinehurst. The Wii Weather Channel will even adjust the forecast to match the fairway because sometimes even the pros have to play in the rain.
Before doing ‘Darkplace’ in 2003, I was temping and at call centres, and that was pretty bad. Then I was at the London Dungeon, which I loved doing, and then from that, I was on Channel 4 doing ‘Darkplace.’
I like the Sci Fi channel and ‘Science Fiction Theatre.’ I’ve been doing a lot of television-watching and thinking about good songs to write.
Roky Erickson

There was nothing that amazed me more than parents that could channel the loss of their child into a crusade to protect other people’s kids.

Two hundred channel choices in most homes certainly gives you the world of choice. And so slicing it, dicing it, and offering someone their favorite thing – by the way, if it’s not good enough, make it yourself and post it.
At 24 I was a wannabe. I was not a ‘former TV presenter‘ as everybody says – I was a young girl living on a wish, appearing on the roulette channel at 1 am and selling cordless kettles on Channel 953.
You have to channel the interpretation and performance into 100 people. And with the audience, the critics.

Kate Mulgrew
Most of Hollywood is informed in a very superficial way, only based on what they see on this television channel or the other, or in this newspaper or the other.
I like the fact that I have the power to convey a lot of emotion through my songs. I like to channel that when I’m singing. I think it’s just a mix of R&B, soul, but then I kind of move more into the pop world and electronic pop and stuff like that.
Hallmark Channel treats their actors and actresses with utmost respect. Their scripts remind of me of why entertainment exists in the first place: escape.
If you had to pay separately for just PBS, probably, sadly, not a majority of Americans would do that. So there’s many channels, whether it’s Discovery Channel or C-SPAN or many, many others, that just aren’t viable.
I was part of the Atlanta Boy Choir probably like fourth and fifth grade. I personally didn’t enjoy the type of music that we were doing. I was more into like whatever was on Disney Channel and Nickelodeon.
The future of communicating with customers rests in engaging with them through every possible channel: phone, e-mail, chat, Web, and social networks. Customers are discussing a company’s products and brand in real time. Companies need to join the conversation.
I’d hope that when Channel 4 started, ‘The Last Leg’ was the kind of show it wanted to be putting out. I think they’re really proud of it.
If you’re an activist trying to do something important, I salute you. Most of us just give ourselves ethical brownie points for watching Channel 2 instead of Channel 3, like characters in a broad dystopian satire.

B. Kevin Turner
People say: ‘Oh, but would you be happy for your show to go on BBC3 if it was just online?’ If I was sat here telling you I had just signed a huge deal with Netflix you’d be going: ‘Wow, that’s amazing.’ You can’t see it as ‘Oh, it’s no longer a channel because it’s not on TV.’
A-Frame was a real, pivotal moment because that’s where I really got to channel a lot of emotions.
Awards are very important for a show like ‘Rectify.’ We’re a small show; we’re on a more obscure, harder-to-find channel that is very supportive of creative and singular vision.

The truth is that every news channel is a variant of the other and the difference is one of degree.

I have a cooking show that’s coming on that I did in Albany. It will be on The Cooking Channel.
Dom DeLuise
Our news is Fox News. It’s a cable channel and has nothing to do, frankly, with the entertainment area of the company. It’s the model of how this company was launched, and there are a lot of independent stations and Fox O&Os who have hugely successful news that our programming is the lead-in for.
Dana Walden
As far as the future for the Showtime episodes that have already aired, we are sold into syndication so we’ll be appearing primarily on the Fox syndicated networks and then eventually the SCI FI Channel. So, we’ll be around for a while.

When I am having my picture taken, I channel Beyonce. In the studio, my inspiration is Adele.

I’ve been a huge fan of the cable network FX for a very, very long time. I think their brand of comedy is incredible. For me, as an audience member, that’s a go-to channel.
Chris Klein
There’s really nothing but one audition for a Disney Channel movie that separates me from 2,000 other brown-haired, blue-eyed guys in L.A., you know?
Selling online is one channel, but it’s not the only channel.
Van Morrison is probably, at this point in time, my biggest influence as a vocalist.

I think there were candles around, which is really tacky, but hey, I needed to channel Van the Man!
Well it has been very exciting and very changing as well. Celebrating the 40th year and having the album out and the Channel 4 documentary and I resigned from Blind Date.
There have been occasions – and I think it’s very good for any human being that such occasions would be rare – that one would feel that one is a channel, and there have been some occasions when it seemed as though I was standing outside of myself watching and listening to myself sing.
I don’t know why people feel that I am only interested in films, but I very much want to do fiction. My only prerequisite is a good role, something which satisfies the actor in me. If I get a good banner and a good channel, I would definitely do a daily soap.
For the vlogging channel, I wanted to build the infrastructure and build up all the personalities in a way that felt like weren’t just forcing the audience to watch everyone we have.
I watch one news channel until my soul can’t take it anymore. It’s the background of my life.
At drama school we were encouraged to keep fit and healthy, but not to bulk out. We were told to stay lithe to allow our bodies to morph when we’re playing various parts. Running is ideal for this, especially when I needed a lean look for the Channel 4 drama ‘Cucumber.’
My father-in-law gets up at 5 o’clock in the morning and watches the Discovery Channel. I don’t know why there’s this big rush to do this.
I used to do a lot of serious theatre during my school and college days. Comedy was only reserved for youth festival and inter-college competitions. Then once ‘The Great Indian Laughter Challenge’ was launched, a regional channel in Punjab started a program based on that. I participated in it and emerged as the winner.
I’m not a political thinker, but I’ve just always thought of myself as a Labour supporter. I was a great fan of Tony Blair. He sent me a letter before I swam the Channel to wish me luck.
The first videos I uploaded on my own personal channel were videos of dogs.
I love being supportive of other YouTubers because I know how much work and dedication goes into building a channel, and I think that the community on YouTube is just so important because the viewers get to be a part of what you’re creating.
A lot of consumers actively enjoy advertising, especially fashion print ads and clever TV commercials. The nostalgic cable channel TVLand features not only vintage shows but also vintage commercials.
If you don’t know each other you spend time doing research together, having dinner, and talking about your lives. You try to find common ground. Once you’re shooting, the pressures are so intense; you really want to have a channel of communication open to you already.
I watched the Disney Channel all the time growing up. ‘Lizzie McGuire’ was my all-time favorite. I’m pretty sure I had every piece of merchandise that involved Lizzie. And I loved ‘That’s So Raven.’
Because I have an opinion, I have become public enemy number one to the Fox News Channel and the right wing.
With my writing partner, Sam Bain, I have gone on to write for lots of shows, including our co-creation ‘Peep Show,’ two series of which have been shown on Channel 4. But politics has always attracted me.
It’s imperative that I have another channel to pour ideas into, that have been with me for quite a while, that it would be hard for people to kind of accept on first listen. Some of that would be more classically based stuff and some more jazz based.
The Wilmington, Delaware, television station that bills itself as The Family Minded Station is Channel 69.
I don’t think enough players channel the energy of the crowd. If it’s done properly, and you don’t let anger overwhelm and distract you, it’s like a shot of adrenaline in the arm, and it gets the crowd pumped up.
The Food Network and the Cooking Channel have so many viewers. And, because there’s no violence, some of that audience is children. So, I think we have a responsibility to educate parents how to produce healthy meals for their families.
Robert Irvine
I’m not toeing the line when I say BBC3 is an incredible channel – it has evolved and found itself.
When I got a million subscribers, it just sort of snowballed from there because a lot more people show interest. They’re like, ‘Who’s this? They’ve got a million subscribers; maybe I’ll like their channel.’
Well I went to New Orleans to cover the jazz festival for Trio, it’s this new arts channel, it’s really great.
Your mind is the channel of it all. It feeds your soul, your heart, everything. It comes from your thoughts. The kind of person you are comes from the way you think. And it bleeds into the way you feel. And such forth. If the mind is not free, then we won’t be free.
Stephen Marley
I don’t like the NFL, where I think it’s a problem: some guy scores a touchdown, now he’s got some kind of dance that he planned. To me, I just want to change the channel.
The reason I created a YouTube channel was because I can connect on a more personal level and be more detailed, within 10 minutes, of my life and what I do on a daily basis.
JuJu Smith-Schuster
I do watch some TV. I like the History Channel and National Geographic, and old shows on TV Land like ‘Sanford and Son,’ ‘The Jeffersons,’ and ‘Benson.’
I think that happens every five years or so when ‘Friends’ moves to a different channel. I think basically everybody has seen it now. It’s so good, and timeless. Actually I don’t know if it’s timeless, I haven‘t seen it for years.
From Julia Child to ‘The Galloping Gourmet‘ and the Food Channel and Cooking Channel, our fascination with the spectacle of cooking has been a mainstay of TV entertainment.
A cast mate once told me having a YouTube channel was cheating.
I like the encouragement I get from doing new things. I like to feel scared or challenged in the hope that I can pull it off. That little bit of fear creates an energy that I can channel into the performance.
Joanne Whalley
I never get obsessed with ratings, partly because the Channel series ‘Utopia,’ which I did, had small ratings but a passionate following, which allowed a second series.
Alistair Petrie
I’m so sleepy most of the time, but I guess it’s ’cause I’m constantly doing things and trying to move forward and set up for the master plan. The master plan is to be, like, little baby Oprah, with my own production company, maybe my own channel, inspire millions.
I was told by so many people that I wouldn’t succeed because I was too different. Ironically, the very reason that people watch my channel and travel thousands of miles to see a show… is because it’s different. God didn’t send us to Earth to just blend in. We are here to share what makes us unique.
Anytime the premiere sports channel calls you and says they want to do a movie about you, you’re going to say, ‘Yes.’
The Bristol Channel was always my guide, and I was always able to draw an imaginary line from my bed to our house over in Wales. It was a great comfort.
As a teenager I was very anxious. I had a lot of energy and passion that I wanted to channel into creative things, and I always felt like I wasn’t achieving enough.
I’ve been interested in pandemics for decades. I even made a four-part series for Channel 4 UK and SBS called ‘Invisible Enemies‘ which screened in the early 90s.
Norman Swan
‘Just What I Am’ took me all of 10 minutes to make. ‘Immortal‘ maybe took 30 minutes. It’s not hard for me. ‘Indicud’ is almost what my first album should have sounded like, had I really been able to channel all of the ideas I had into music.
I don’t want to have to say, Honey, you know, could you turn off the sports channel because I’m not a big sports fan, and I don’t love the television being on just for the sake of turning on. I’d like turning on for some thing specific.
I have been having some help to channel my thoughts in a better way and hopefully that can help push me on.
A lot of Disney Channel actors and actresses, when they stop working for Disney Channel, they have a real aversion for not wanting to be remembered by Disney Channel.
I feel like Africans are too often portrayed as people on the National Geographic channel: the image is of an African man in a loincloth chasing a gazelle. It’s not intentionally racist; I wouldn’t call it racist at all. It’s a lack of understanding another culture.
I’m very private in person. I’m very sensitive and shy with men individually. But when I’m talking, maybe there’s this other channel or this other side and other way of working in my mind, and I convert and become carefree.
I have Gordon Ramsay to thank for my TV career because Channel 4 spent a long time trying to find him a sidekick for ‘The F Word’, then he suggested me, knowing I’d stand up to him.
I’m the first social media star cast as a regular on a Disney Channel series, and I think I’m the first one under 25 from social media to become a series regular.
We have Al Jazeera Arabic news, Al Jazeera English news, of course; we have three sports channels, and we have Al Jazeera Mubasher, which is a live channel that broadcasts live press conferences and symposiums and meetings. And, of course, we have Al Jazeera commentary in Arabic.
The State provides a legal, orderly, systematic channel for the predation of private property; it renders certain, secure, and relativelypeaceful‘ the lifeline of the parasitic caste in society.
On my Nickelodeon shows – ‘Victorious‘ is my seventh show for the channel – there’s this same distinct comedic voice that goes throughout. I’m not saying it’s brilliant, but it works and kids think it’s funny.
People only attempt perilous journeys like crossing the Channel because they are desperate. It is deeply concerning that men, women, and children feel they have no choice but to put their lives at risk in their search for a safe place to live.
Like everyone, I am concerned about the Irish border and the Good Friday Agreement, but as a Kent MP I am also concerned to keep lorries flowing freely through the Port of Dover and the Channel Tunnel. If they don’t, Kent becomes a lorry park and life for those of us who live there becomes very unpleasant.
When you’re young and creative, you don’t know how to channel all that creative energy, so sometimes it goes to the wrong places.
When I lack confidence now, I channel a bit of Steve Owen and that transforms me.
I normally ignore the History Channel.
I started my YouTube channel when I was 13. At the time, I was being bullied by a few people who I used to be very close to. I felt very alone and unmotivated. After discovering the beauty community, I decided it would be a great way to express myself and use it as an outlet to be who I am.
The first series of ‘Open All Hours’ came and went without much fanfare because the BBC, in its almighty wisdom, put it out on BBC2, reasoning that it was ‘a gentle comedy’, better suited to the calms of the second channel than to the noisier, choppier waters of the first.
With boxing, sometimes you’ll watch the first three rounds, then you’ll change the channel and turn it back in the 10th round. With MMA, you have to watch all 15 minutes. You’ll want to watch every second.
Feel provides an important channel of information.
I started many years ago using the Boss DS-1 and then graduated to the Satchurator and putting that right into that clean channel, and that sounds great. I’ve done many tours with that setup. Then we took the next two channels that were part of the JVM sound in channel 1 and made them a little more subtle.
Since developing my blog and YouTube channel in 2013, Little Lights of Mine, I’ve connected with some of the most passionate people around the world.
I’m a big fan of ‘National Geographic’, the magazine and the channel. Anything to do with the natural world. For years, when I was younger, I was convinced I would be a nature photographer, but that didn’t pan out.
I think the good thing about ‘Take Me Out’, which is kind of a compliment to us really, is that when it started doing well round about the second series and people started getting into it, all of a sudden every time you turned over a channel there’s a new dating show on.
The immediate, highest priority need, in my humble opinion, is that we build quickly the interim structures that can channel water away from population and businesses in the New Orleans area.
Billy Tauzin
Skunk works differed from advanced research groups in that they were more than just product development groups. They had direct interaction with customers and controlled a sales channel which allowed them to negotiate their own deals with customers.
Disney Channel is celebrities coated in sugar. Everything is really happy; everything is really bright.
Watch the History Channel if you want it literal and historically perfect.
As an artist, you want as many people as possible to see your work with no interference. And usually, I’ve gone onto fringe channels: BBC Two, HBO, Channel 4.
If you’re doing an animated comedy on the same channel as ‘South Park,’ no one can really tell you anything. The bar has been set so high.
Phil LaMarr
I learned from making random little personal projects, like school projects or little GoPro montages with music. Then once I made my channel, I really improved just by making video after video.
Every time I get dressed, I try to channel a little bit of Kanye West and a little bit of Sailor Moon.
We are now focused on the brand, not the channel.
The least-crowded channel for meeting high profile bloggers is in person. Email is the most difficult, the most crowded… I’m a top 1,000 blogger, not a top 100 blogger, and I get hundreds of pitches by email every week. Most of them I don’t even see because my assistant declines them.
I love watching the National Geographic channel. That show ‘Taboo‘? I love it!
We’re lucky in that channels like Science, Animal Planet and Discovery are essentially universal in terms of their appeal. If you wake up in Moscow and put on the Science channel, it doesn’t feel like an American channel, it feels like their channel.
David Zaslav
Discovery Channel’s ‘Planet Healers’ will provide a look into how businesses can exist for more than just making profits, how they can help create a better and sustainable future.
I started cooking seven years ago for real, and I started with pasta, and lasagna and roast chicken. Very normal American dishes. When I turned on Food Network, or any sort of cooking channel, that’s what people were making. So that’s where your education comes from.
Aarti Sequeira
There may sometimes be ungenerous attempts to keep a young man down; and they will succeed, too, if he allows his mind to be diverted from its true channel to brood over the attempted injury.
Once, I tried to channel my inner Pocahontas and wore a lot of Navajo prints, a lot of beige, fringe, and suede… I wish I hadn’t done that.
When I started my YouTube channel in 2010, I never imagined that one day it would be the most subscribed channel in the world and that I would be a part of such a great community.
When I lived in Minneapolis in my twenties, and my mom lived there, too, I used to take her ‘storm chasing’ – by which I mean I’d see a pulsing blob of radar on The Weather Channel and make her drive us toward the storm.
Jenna Blum
I have used movies to go to sleep at night. You flip from channel to channel to channel and see just enough to make your brain mushy and go to sleep.
We thought ‘Father Ted’ was destined to be obscure late-night Channel 4 fodder and then it works and you don’t really know why.
I have a lot of energy, and as you get to know me, you will quickly learn that! I channel my energy into my acting, my writing, everything.
I had a really bad temper, when I was growing up. Sport helped me channel that temper into more positive acts.
I’m watching the Weather Channel more than I’ve ever watched it. I’m scared to death it’s going to rain.
When we were a quiet, little-noticed channel telling stories from Russia, our audience was negligible. When we started being really provocative… our audience started to grow.
While ‘Teachers’ may have had its following, it was on late-night Channel Four, whereas ‘EastEnders’ was seen by millions and millions of people. I certainly don’t have the cache to sell a programme like that, and certainly nobody’s coming up and asking me to.
Raquel Cassidy
I’m on all the channels. I’m on every channel. Not just Fox. I’m even on the channels that attack me all the time.
The only reason I’m associated with ‘the Boosh’ is because Richard Ayoade, who was meant to be doing Bainbridge, couldn’t do it because of something with Channel 4, so I ended up doing it.
Today I have learned how to channel my rage through fashion.
I love to watch documentaries on The History Channel and TLC.
Songwriting is such a mysterious thing. Its a magical channel thats a gift to you and you cant really conjure it up when you want it to. It could pop up when youre driving or out having dinner.
It’s weird, but I don’t feel like think I deserve any of the attention. There’s really nothing but one audition for a Disney Channel movie that separates me from 2,000 other brown-haired, blue-eyed guys in L.A., you know?
I’m a huge fan of the Nature Channel programs.
We have quite a few political songs: ‘Channel Z,’ let’s ‘Keep This Party Going’ on. Our lyrics aren’t too hit-you-over-the-head, but they have political undertones. We’re active politically.
People only watch six to eight to 10 channels, so if you want to be one of those channels, then you have to create content so strong that people have to come not once, not twice but enough that, behaviorally, they start to feel like, ‘That’s my channel.’
David Zaslav
I like the sci-fi channel. Just science in general. I came across a segment on time travel and how time travel is possible. We create a spaceship that’s moving at almost the speed of light, we go in that spaceship in outer space, and we fly around for a year, when we get back to Earth, Earth would’ve aged 10 years.
Von Miller
I know all about you. You’re the people waiting on the shoreline with the warm towels and the hot chocolate after the woman swims the English Channel.
Because North Korea was so totally cut off, we didn’t hear anything of the outside world. We had only one TV channel, which showed only propaganda, and we believed everything.
I am not fearless. I get scared plenty. But I have also learned how to channel that emotion to sharpen me.
Fox News has a very-high-income audience, and I think that any business channel automatically draws that. We’re not gonna reach for a lower financial demographic.
Through consciousness, our minds have the power to change our planet and ourselves. It is time we heed the wisdom of the ancient indigenous people and channel our consciousness and spirit to tend the garden and not destroy it.
I have done hit shows like ‘Bhabhi’ – ‘Mayka’ did well on Zee TV; so did ‘Chidya Ghar’ on Sab TV. So why should I work with a new channel with exclusivity?
CNN’s problem goes to its very core and to the identity it’s sought ever since the rise of Fox News, on its right: CNN is the channel for people who don’t want to watch the other channels! That’s a stupid strategy.
I do a lot of video games – I have a YouTube channel where I record me playing video games with my friends and post it. That’s a hobby I have and a lot of what I do in my off time.
Chandler Riggs
Channel brand is so key.
I would love to be remembered for ridding the world of disease, but my knowledge of science comes from episodes of ‘Nova’ and shows on the Discovery Channel. I don’t think a superficial understanding of shark behavior and black holes can help cure diseases.
I cut my hand swimming in the Caribbean, it gets infected, and Channel 9 is calling me saying they heard rumors I cut my fingers off.
My channel is my baby. Some women have babies; I have a YouTube channel.
I get about five memoirs per week in my mailbox, and few of them inspire anything but a desire to pick up the channel changer.
When I auditioned for ‘Jessie,’ I knew that Disney Channel basically will do 100 episodes of a show if it’s a hit; they’ll stick with something. It’s a great network to work with because they make a nice big commitment to a show.
Kevin Chamberlin
I always wanted to at least visit Dubai – it was a city that I loved to watch on the Discovery Channel. It had the world’s biggest everything and clearly had a vision to stand out.
I demand for the unmarried mother, as a sacred channel of life, the same reverence and respect as for the married mother; for Maternity is a cosmic thing and once it has come to pass, our conversation must not be permitted to blaspheme it.
Ben Lindsey
I often debate liberals on Fox News Channel who tend to start yelling and attacking when they run out of facts or common sense. I suppose these folks figure if they bow up and get in our faces, we’ll just back down and see the world their way.
I don’t chill out to music. When I get home, there’s no music playing. Every TV is set on a different channel. I’m keeping up with the shows.
Seeing so many comments on our YouTube channel from people all over the world, even if they don’t understand Japanese, made me realize that music has worldwide appeal.
You’re lucky if I watch 10 minutes of wrestling a month. Most of the time, I channel surf, and I lose interest after a few minutes.
The majority of my job is being an open channel, and if I’m not being very authentic with who I am in myself, then it doesn’t feel like I can dig down deep and get to really vulnerable stuff, or stuff I have never felt before.
I try to use my platform for things that I believe in and for things that would have helped me when I was younger. I try to keep everything really positive, which is why I made a YouTube channel, to integrate fans more into my life.
Every cable news channel was a very big business success before Donald Trump started lying about Barack Obama‘s birth certificate. And they were all making more money than they knew what to do with then and more money than Donald Trump has ever seen in his life.
It is a process of diverting one’s scattered forces into one powerful channel.
I was inspired by many teachers when I started my channel, Bob Ross being one of them. His voice was so soothing, almost like hypnosis. He was that great of a teacher, even the casual viewer could learn how to paint from watching his show. Growing up, I just remember him being so mesmerizing on screen.
Trump gives progressives a way to channel whatever guilt they might have – whether from preventing homebuilding, benefitting from unfair taxes and pensions, or depriving black and Latino students the teacher quality and school funding they need – into a sanctimonious tribal rage against Republican racism.
‘That’s So Raven’ was my favorite show growing up! I loved Raven so much! That show is what made me want to be on Disney Channel!
Raini Rodriguez
I grew up in Virginia, where Hallmark Channel is king. So I’m really excited to join the holiday family.
GPS is expensive because it is a very slow communication channel – you need to communicate with three or four satellites for an extended duration at 50 bits per second.
Robert Love
Swapping out the nine-to-five for a more agile, independent working life brings with it one other huge benefit – a channel for self-actualization.
Coming from The Disney Channel, anything I do is going to offend somehow, somewhere, somehow.
Brenda Song
I’m thrilled to be working with the Science Channel. A chance to shine a light on the wonder and exciting possibilities of science with such a smart and talented team is a dream come true for me. It’s very gratifying to me personally, and it’s also a way to honor my family.
We all battling different things. Me? I’m just able to channel that through my music.
I’ve always had way too much energy so I’m always looking for new things to do to channel that energy.
My biggest regret is by far doing the Travel Channel show, ‘Bert the Adventurer.’ I spent seven years away from my family. I don’t regret the job or working for the channel; I regret being away from home.
I often use a return channel to get some shape out of the bass. It’s a good way to split the frequencies of the bass so that the sub bass is clean and in mono and the higher end of the bass sound can be filtered off – have it on an audio channel and that’s where you can use effects.
In the old days, there were a couple of TV channels and that was it, so every channel tried to appeal to as broad of an audience as possible. Newt Gingrich recognized a way to bypass this and he did so through CSPAN.
I am specially happy that so many children like what I do. If I had my way I’d only be doing my comic act on the Disney channel.
On stage, you can use your emotions. It’s the place where you can channel them. They have a purpose.
When the Murdoch family leadership chose Suzanne Scott to lead Fox News who had been at the channel for a number of years and knew inside and out, the system of winning, I was excited.
A female friend who caught me watching Fashion TV reckons its audience is largely made up of slobbering men who are just taking a break from the appalling Men & Motors channel. I don’t agree.
One challenge, if you do a website, a Youtube channel, Twitter, Facebook, Myspace, Ping, other things like that, is you don’t have time to be an artist. As a performer, you need to practice.
When I launched my channel, I felt I was ready to do this. It’s not that I had learnt everything – because as an artiste you never stop learning, but I was ready to put out my voice in the world.
You got to keep all your weaknesses away, and my weakness is women. I love women too much. Which has definitely road-blocked me. I just try my best to channel my energy to other things and remain focused while making my work as fun as everything else.
In America there is a channel called TruTV which is just reruns of ‘Cops‘ and ‘World’s Dumbest Criminals’. I could watch that the entire day.
I don’t believe in villains – just people who channel their energy in the wrong way.
Building walls is entirely sensible. We don’t need to do it. We have got the English Channel.
I think I was always a class clown growing up and a funny kid. I never really knew how to channel that until I got into high school.
MSNBC got some very good people. They’ve got a good-looking set. All They’re first-class. Somewhere along the way, they kind of lost their identity as a news channel, and they started doing a lot of other sort of magazine-type programming.
Acting has given me a way to channel my angst. I feel like an overweight, pimply faced kid a lot of the time – and finding a way to access that insecurity, and put it toward something creative is incredibly rewarding. I feel very lucky.
I want my channel to be a place people go even if they don’t care about Lilly. I don’t want them to have to know about Lilly or care about me as a person to enjoy my content.
I work from a deep sense of insecurity. I have the belief, and I can’t shake it, that there are endless reasons to turn the channel. There are hundreds of channels and entirely other things to do besides TV. And if you make a bad television show there’s no reason for the audience to come back the following week.
Chuck Lorre
There’s lots of stuff about me being a fan of Cliff but not being gay. Which suggests that he is, but he’s not. Anyway, this is Channel 4, let their lawyers sort it out.
It’s always helpful to pick our fans’ brains to see what their favorite videos are and to figure out what the momentum of our channel is. Not just based on views or likes or dislikes, but anecdotally.
Charles Lincoln Neal
It’s very important that we keep these special, wild places. It defines the United States. Imagine our country without our national parks and our monuments. Here in California, imagine if you didn’t have in Southern Cal the Channel Islands or the great Highway 1, Big Sur up to Point Reyes up to the Redwood country.
I think what people like about my channel is that I am not perfect. I always point to my pimple, my bad hair day… people relate to that. They are watching somebody who is exactly like them and talking about things that they experience as well.
I’m such a Beeb girl, they’ve always been great to me. I’ve worked at ITV and Channel 4, but the BBC has always felt like home.
If I do commentary, write articles, or am an expert on a news channel, I can still earn money.
The meaning of the word ‘remake‘ has changed so much over the years that from being a channel through which the younger generation heard classic melodies, it has now become a formula, a business model.
My guilty pleasure is watching the Investigation Discovery channel.
As a Fox News Channel contributor, I’ve learned most of the tips over the years: look into the camera like it’s a good friend; pull your suit jacket down and sit on it so it doesn’t bunch up; and most importantly, never, ever say anything while sitting in that studio that you wouldn’t want someone else to hear.
Too many brands treat social media as a one way, broadcast channel, rather than a two-way dialogue through which emotional storytelling can be transferred.
Vice has a bold voice and a distinctive model in the marketplace. This channel represents a strategic fit and a new direction for the future of our portfolio of media assets.
My tears will keep no channel, know no laws to guide their streams, but like the waves, their cause, run with disturbance till they swallow me as a description of his misery.
John Cleveland
My YouTube channel gives family goals to my fans. They get access to how I live my life with my family off screen.
While boosting the production of consumer goods, we should channel great efforts into improving the welfare service for the people.
I did not sit down and watch ‘Baywatch‘ growing up. But I do specifically remember it coming on, and I remember it going off. I watched something that came on right before and then going back to that channel to watch what was coming on afterwards.
Because it’s so easy to medicate our need for self-worth by pandering to win followers, ‘likes’ and view counts, social media have become the metier of choice for many people who might otherwise channel that energy into books, music or art – or even into their own Web ventures.
Back in the late 1980s I was programme editor of Channel Four’s Business Daily. Day after day we broadcast the latest news, views and analysis for the City in a period when its visibility was as high as it has ever been.
I was being very bad because I didn’t know how to express myself. Music gave me an outlet to express myself and channel that anger.
My first fear was about the devil, when I was around fire, something I saw in a movie. I think it’s about pain, in whichever form it comes. I had a lot of energy as a child – sometimes too much – and I didn’t know how to channel it. It was making me suffer. It was bigger than myself, and I was very young.
I’ve learned a lot about guys through Twitter and I’m for any channel that allows athletes to express themselves openly.
Onstage, I channel my inner goddess. Everyday Jillian is definitely more low-key: jeans and a crop top with a sneaker or boot.
The hardest thing was launching ‘OK!’ magazine; the easiest thing was Channel 5. ‘The Express’ was my defining moment because our turnover was less than £100m with 150 employees.
Richard Desmond
I wish I could say that I saw Barcelona playing on TV and fell in love with football instantly, but I’m from Colorado and Fox Soccer Channel was pretty expensive.
Celebrities have been using MySpace since the site’s launch and it’s a natural extension for us to now offer them an aggregated channel where they can be in control of their own image.
If I’m on a show, then that’s my favorite channel.
Jason Dolley
When you’re overthinking a thought like the way I do, I can get completely pulled away from something I’m in the middle of because my thought channel just won’t help me get from point A to point B without any difficulty.
We expanded the brand to include a whole line of apparel and accessories, but we quickly learned that it was not good to have one channel of distribution.
I have a project at HBO and one at the Family Channel coming that are being looked at. Aside from that I am not doing much more than playing golf and some skiing.
I actually love the Discovery Channel.
While some people simply want to villainize the private sector, the fact is that the private sector drives jobs growth; we need to channel the energy and innovation of employers to generate opportunities for the entire labor market.
It is of no consequence whether a man of genius have learned either art or science before twenty-five: all that is necessary, or even desirable, is that his powers should be unfolded, his emulation roused, and his habits conducted into a right channel.
Channel 4’s ‘Feel Good‘ is like the friends you make when you move to the big city and take your first, tentative steps into adulting, the flat-share-mates. Comedian Mae Martin is fantastic and the writing is perfect.
Our goal has always been to make broadcasters on TwitchTV feel like they own their channel pages, and we’re continuing to make incremental improvements there.
One good thing about television is that you have a lot of people with money who have real good cameras going around to all these countries. You haven’t been there? Great. Turn on The History Channel or The Discovery Channel. So, we’re lucky in that way.
I wanted to have the no. 1 show on the Discovery channel. I went for it for a very long time, and I was knocking on every door in L.A. that would answer, and sleeping in front of Discovery’s office, probably. It wasn’t working, so I decided to regroup and take a break from knocking on doors.
Some of the History Channel’s documentaries involve docudrama segments and are highly speculative – but there seems, on the part of the producers, to be a real determination to get at the history behind our past – not the sex, which is left to drama shows and entertainment channels.
You have to be enough of a parent – you have to be there. If I’m feeling bad, I really do just have to get on with it and try and channel it back into my work somehow, do something positive with it.
I’m not a television anchor for a Hindi channel or a radio jockey. So I may not be able to have a spontaneous conversation in Hindi. I’m a Bollywood actress, and I can certainly speak my dialogue in Hindi.
When you’re heartbroken, you’re at your most creative – you have to channel all your energies into something else to not think about it. Contentment is a creativity killer, but don’t worry – I’m very capable of making myself discontented.
I remember when the first police scary video thing came out, and you thought, wow, ooh, look at this, come and look, come and look. And now it’s on every channel.
I remember having a feeling like, ‘I can’t believe this is happening!’ Two years ago I was auditioning for The Disney Channel, and now Paul Rudd is saying, ‘Hey man, congratulations on your Emmy nomination!’
You can debate when the conservative movement became a racket – I nominate 1996, the year Rupert Murdoch and Roger Ailes created Fox News Channel to monetize right-wing outrage – but there is no doubt it has long since passed that point.
I’ve never made a penny from any of the school stuff I’ve done. I’ve had brands asking me if they can sponsor my channel for a year, stuff like that. But I’ve never monetised it. My books and my 90-Day Plan are my business.
With my channel, and what people associate with Internet, most people think it goes viral, you become this huge thing super quick. I never had an explosion or a huge thing. It’s just been something that has progressively been growing. It’s been building.
I did nine years with Travel Channel and had all of these incredible experiences.
One day, I was flipping through the channels and I happened to flip the channel onto wrestling. I had never seen it before; I didn’t know what it was. I was hooked instantly.
My brother is a genius. When we went to Italy, he was on the local television channel as a prodigy, who could solve very sophisticated mathematical equations. He was only seven or eight years old but he could solve mathematical problems for fourteen year olds.
I channel surf like probably most people.
I’d been gearing up to working in theatre since coming out of drama school, but it was an exciting time for TV drama – it was the birth of Channel 4, and Brookside was very cutting-edge at the time.
Secretly, I’m a real big nerd. I’d rather stay home and play Scrabble than go to a Hollywood party, any day of the week. And I love reading about history and watching the Discovery Channel.
Sprague Grayden
We in Britain stopped evolving gastronomically with the advent of the pie. Everything beyond that seemed like a brave, frightening new world. We knew the French were up to something across the Channel, but we didn’t want anything to do with it.
When I first started my channel, I was a freshman in college and worked at a pizzeria, but I still made YouTube a priority because I was passionate about it.
I would say television is a focus, and expanding our channel platform is a focus. As for buying libraries, when catalogs are going down in value, the answer is that it’s all about price!
One of the most effective ways we started our web efforts in the early 2000s with our first channel Frederator, we basically showcased 1000’s of shows on our show over a few years and what that did was introduce us to talented people from all across the world, you name it, we met people all over the place.
Fred Seibert
We want to be number one, from the ingestion of content to the play-out to any type of channel. Everything between there, you should see Ericsson if you are a broadcaster, telecoms operator, or cable operator.
I hate reality shows. But if I had to be on one, I’d have to say ‘Realtree Road Trips‘ on the Outdoor Channel.
When I was young, there was only one TV channel, sponsored by the government, and it only broadcast things like what the leader had for breakfast. There was no real media.
We have an unknown distance yet to run, an unknown river to explore. What falls there are, we know not; what rocks beset the channel, we know not; what walls ride over the river, we know not. Ah, well! we may conjecture many things.
John Wesley Powell
I’m generally quite an angry person, and I like to channel my anger toward something creative.
Learning how to center and control anger, fear, sadness, weakness and learning how to channel that into something smart, cerebralizing it, meditating on it and then moving into it with wisdom – that’s important.
We want to take the energy surrounding the Sandy Hook anniversary that might otherwise be consumed by grief or anger – or this week in San Bernardino by fear – and channel some of that to honor our common humanity and love each other.
My channel is really a positive outlet for people to come every day after school. I make my videos so that people can have something happy to turn to – a positive message. I’m making it okay to talk about stuff.
As long as you are a trusted source of news, the distribution channel doesn’t matter as much. If we have to move to tablets or phones, that’s fine.
I couldn’t watch ‘Harry Potter,’ ‘Lord of the Rings,’ ‘House’… I was like strictly a ‘SpongeBob,’ Disney Channel, Nickelodeon kinda guy.
I had done a bunch of stuff before I even went to Disney. I’m so grateful for what Disney gave me and the experiences that I got, but at the end of the day, I can do so much more than what I did on that channel and in those movies.
I don’t watch TV dramas. I watch ESPN, HBO boxing, National Geographic Channel and I kind of like to get some DVDs, movies that I haven’t seen and I just pop them in.
Dominic Purcell
Channel your heartbreak into work, then use that extra money to treat yourself to a new handbag.
I think that there are three incredible brands in the news and information space. I think ESPN owns sports; I think the Weather Channel owns weather, and I want CNN to own news and information in the global digital video space.
When Chipotle asked me to take part in the Cultivating Thought program both as an author and an essay contest judge, I was excited by the idea of sharing my story through this unique channel and helping young, inspiring writers do the same.
Bake Off’ will be a hit in Channel 4 terms but I don’t think it will ever reach the heights it has on the BBC just because it won’t. I love the show I am a big fan of the show, I think it is great.
I had to join the army, because I knew I would be inside or dead otherwise. I needed someone to channel my anger and it worked for me. It was a wake up call and I never looked back.
Every moment of life is like a sacrament in which we can receive God. It is a channel through which God speaks to us, forms us, and directs us.
In the beginning of my YouTube channel, I feel like I was doing what everyone else was doing, and I kind of felt very pressured to fit in with everyone.
Grit is that ‘extra something’ that separates the most successful people from the rest. It’s the passion, perseverance, and stamina that we must channel in order to stick with our dreams until they become a reality.
I was just a little girl watching TV and wanting to be in it. My parents had no idea how to get me there, but here I am as a part of this great cast on the Disney Channel. Truly, if you just want to do this, then you have to commit to it.
Brenda Song
I don’t often watch something I’ve done on TV. Usually, I’ll change the channel and watch something else.
I work out every morning for an hour while in front of the news channel or business channels, then I’ll ride for four, five hours a day. So I’m on the move all the time, and I think that’s the key. A body in motion tends to stay in motion. That’s the law of physics.
Ian Millar
When I fight, people are going to watch me fight. They’re not gonna turn the channel to ‘Real Housewives of OC’ like they will other fighters.
I love the Discovery Channel. I love all sorts of medical shows. I love a show called ‘Diagnosis: Unknown.’
Even to current-events junkies, the notion of a 24-hour news channel sounded like a gimmick when the Cable News Network launched more than 30 years ago.
The Fox News cable channel is doing very well because there is a market for what Fox News has to offer.
I’m enjoying Channel Four’s ’10 O’Clock Live.’ I like the idea of putting together a dream team and seeing what happens. I also like ‘Not Going Out,’ the sitcom starring Lee Mack. It’s a sitcom packed with jokes. Not many of them as frowned upon as lacking kudos.
Yes, people will pay for the Fox News Channel, despite the fact that the general feeling, one created by the Internet, is that everything should be free.
The Tories must stop focusing on their ideological obsession with a hard Brexit and their internal party divisions and start focusing on what is best for our country and our economy. Their absurd proposal that the U.K. should become the E.U.’s tariff collector is neither practical nor palatable across the Channel.
I was one of those kids who liked a lot of attention. I was always the kid in class who’d be telling jokes and getting in trouble. Theater was a natural way for me to channel that and also become a productive member of society.
Lauren Worsham
In an increasingly polarized world, it’s hard to know whom to trust. CNN will be the only news channel that doesn’t take a side.
I’d just got back from filming my role as Flo in ‘Kidnap & Ransom’ when I got the news that Channel 4 had re-commissioned ‘Fresh Meat,’ so I think it was the first Christmas I could actually relax knowing that I had three months’ work sorted. As an actor, that’s always a good feeling.
I definitely feel that if somebody is struggling with themselves and how they look, they need to really channel the positivity within.
There are parallels between the music and film worlds, but they’re really very different. I feel like they’re just two different ways to channel my creativity.
My channel is an opportunity to give people a new perspective on natural hair. Love what you have and work with what you’ve got. I think that’s really important.
I don’t feel the obligation to have a big explosion in the first 20 seconds so the audience doesn’t turn on another channel. We are trying to make something that looks like a feature film that was bought for television and I think we are succeeding.
Historically, Disney Channel stars don’t survive well outside of the Disney environment.
Closest to my heart is probably ‘Toast of London’ because I came up with the character, based on a bunch of people I worked with in the industry. And Channel 4 didn’t mess with it. Head to screen, it was exactly as I wanted it.
France and Germany have to send a strong signal to the Commission that we need to negotiate a pragmatic and sensible outcome that protects jobs on both sides of the Channel because, for every job lost in the U.K., there will be jobs lost in Europe as well if Brexit goes wrong.
I’ve always been interested in socially political, or overtly political, comedy. And I guess I’ve always liked to channel some kind of personal element to that.
The publishing industry provides a viable channel which enables a wide distribution of books that we’re not seeing in any other way. Unfortunately, self-publishing doesn’t have that.
For Leeds, we have a history of being ‘dirty Leeds’ and we actually channel that. We want to play great football and we are doing that but we also need to fight every time we go on to the pitch.
This programme would only really make sense and work properly if it was also broadcast on France’s international television channel TV5. So I ended up with a double production, on France 2 and TV5.
Bernard Pivot
My manager and fellow YouTuber, Mike Lamond, encouraged me to start a YouTube channel as a way to practice speaking, entertaining, and being more comfortable in front of a camera. In the beginning, I used an $80 dollar flip-camera and edited every episode myself.
I rap on ‘Front Porch Junkies’ and ‘Whatcha Got in that Cup.’ I try to channel my inner Lil Wayne and Drake. It’s fun to be able to freestyle over a country melody and say country words over a rap song.
Probably the TV show I’ve watched the most is ‘How It’s Made’ on the History Channel. I could watch 24 hours of ‘How It’s Made’ and never get bored. Or ‘Dirty Jobs’ – that’s even better!
I wish that one of my children will be like the Australian guy from the Discovery Channel show. The crocodile hunter.
It’s so much fun trying to channel my inner four-year-old.
Kirby Larson
I know a lot of Disney Channel stars. I hang out with Debbie Ryan. Me and Ryan Newman hang out a lot, and I know a lot of them from ‘Friends for Change’ – we all meet from there. It’s cool. Everybody is like family at Disney Channel. All the stars are so fun and nice, so it’s really fun to hang out with them.
Bradley Steven Perry
For me, ‘Jhalak’ was a carry-forward from ‘Khatron ke Khiladi.’ The channel came to me with this offer, and they were very keen on having me as the host.
It is time that we take control and find a way to curtail the explosive costs of health care. Small businesses deserve a chance to channel these funds toward other needs, such as expanding and creating more jobs for the economy.
Christopher Bond
I moved to California when I was twelve and I got a video camera and made little movies because I didn’t have any friends yet. I would force my sister to make these movies with me – which became my YouTube channel.
I try to view my YouTube channel as a logbook of personal interests.
I like learning new stuff, also, and I can sit there and watch shows on National Geographic and the Discovery Channel or stuff like that and learn something new. I think once you’ve gone through such a long stage of learning one thing, you’re not as well-rounded as you’d like to be.
I’m 100% proud of the TV work I achieved. The work I did on shows on insects and Great White sharks… stuff that’s in school curriculums in England. Now they are showing up on Discovery Channel.
There’s something to be said about content living on a channel forever.
John Cabrera
Memories, imagination, old sentiments, and associations are more readily reached through the sense of smell than through any other channel.
I watch Channel 4 News every day. I love it. I rarely watch any other news programme. There’s just something about it – and I’m not talking about Jon Snow’s ties and socks, but I appreciate those, too.
If ‘Star Wars‘ wasn’t enough to prepare me for a dark future, there was the ‘Planet of the Apes’ franchise, conveniently repeated for me in Los Angeles on KABC‘s Channel Seven 3:30 movie. Apes enslaving humans! Mutants with boils and an atom bomb! Ape riots in Century City! They killed baby Caesar‘s parents!
Instead of wanting to be better than other people, let’s channel that energy to be better than we were yesterday and then again to be the best we can be tomorrow.
I can remember, after I started doing films, my mum began going to more arthouse films. She went to see ‘Edward Scissorhands’ and phoned me up and said: ‘What was that all about? He had scissors on his hands.’ Good question. I think she should review films on Channel 4.
In Chennai, I do film reviews for a local channel. Every second movie I review is by a debutant. There is so much passion and freshness in those films; that makes them special.
Sometimes I’ll turn the channel and there’s the movie and I can honestly say that those last few minutes always fascinate me. It’s one of the rare instances when image, music, and drama work effectively.
Looking back on it, now I can identify the points in my life when I wasn’t playing, and music – and didn’t have that outlet – those were the points when I was most unguided and self destructive because I didn’t have that channel to get those energies out. I’m a much healthier person when I play music.
Architects have to become designers of eco-systems. Not just designers of beautiful facades or beautiful sculptures, but systems of economy and ecology, where we channel the flow not only of people, but also the flow of resources through our cities and buildings.
Marchionne has a clear vision of what F1 should represent for Ferrari, which is a purist sport that isn’t a shopping channel. I would strongly encourage the sport’s stakeholders not to provoke him.
Today, you have platforms that teach you everything from opening your own YouTube channel to using Shazam.
The Syfy channel was looking for a show to run alongside ‘Ghost Hunters‘ and investigate the paranormal in a different way. For a TV show, it has a bit of comedy, a bit of travel, and you get these thrilling paranormal investigations as well. It’s a complete package.
I thank God every day that there was no YouTube or Twitter when I was a teenager. I would have had a channel, and it would have been mortifying.
The channel is known only to the natives; so that if any stranger should enter into the bay without one of their pilots he would run great danger of shipwreck.
Thomas More
Social media is an information channel; it’s like radio or TV… In Cisco, we made a lot of money on public protocol. I think the social media model replicates that protocol.
Sandra Lerner
Nothing can bring my Jordan back but I have learned to channel my grief into action to honor my son.
I create videos for my YouTube channel Chescaleigh and for ‘Decoded,’ a series with MTV.
Lyrics are really, really hard, I think, or at least they’re really hard for me. Some people can channel lyrics faster. I find them very hard to find, so because of it, they take me a long time, and I really think about them.
My guilty pleasures tend to be weird, old shows that I find on channel 20 that I’ve never seen before like ‘Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea’ or the ‘Planet of the Apes’ TV show.
Edward Kitsis
The Disney Channel puts out movies, like, every couple of months.
Sabrina Bryan
I spent a lot of times sitting in big rooms full of a lot of men and executives thinking, ‘What would Oprah say right now?’ and trying to channel that as hard as I could. And mostly that was just about having the confidence. If this woman did it, it can be done. And there’s no reason for anybody to stop you.
When I believed in astrology and numerology, people made fun of me, but today there are so many channels just dedicated to astrology and numerology. I now regret that I didn’t start a channel on this. But then, I am happy in life. I don’t dwell upon it.
The idea of an animated film is you always kind of get a little bit daunted by it as a filmmaker because it feels like a lot of your communication is going to be with computer artists, and you’re going to have to kind of channel the movie through extra pairs of hands.
Sometimes the independent movies can get a little too arty-farty. You watch the IFC Channel and you want to throw up. You don’t always have to take things so serious, you know.
I think I’m just competitive and I demand a lot from myself. So I get frustrated if something hasn’t come off for me or if a game is going against it. I like to think I channel it in the right way and do my best for the team.
I’m a huge fan of ‘The Odd Couple,’ yes, and any comparisons to Tony Randall and or Jack Lemmon are completely welcome. I kind of try to channel those guys, and then add my own neuroses, too.
David Alan Basche
Oftentimes unhappy, unfulfilled people with a relationship thats pulling them apart channel so much of their expectation and so much of their energy in a very unhealthy way on their children.
Honestly I believe that men can wear makeup, teach makeup, and vlog about it just as much as girls can, and I am fighting for that equality with my channel.
Now that I do so many Hallmark Channel movies I am recognized in public all of the time.
Cable boxes are, almost without exception, awful. They’re under-powered computers running very badly designed software. Their channel guides are slow, poorly laid out, and usually riddled with ads.
Fox News Channel has a unique and very supportive relationship with our nation’s military. We are proud of it. It’s part of who we are.
We had more viewers on the broadcast network than we did on the cable channel.
I think my channel has a Disney-esque vibe. It’s a friendly place.
Asian parents generally tend to channel their children, especially their daughters, into studying and not sport.
When I say there should not be a BET channel or a Black History Month, I’m saying we deserve more. I just hope people understand that I’m not judging; I’m coming from experience.
I was crossing the English Channel with a carbon-fiber wing on my back.
On my YouTube channel, I put up 3-4 videos a week, and I spend a lot of money to maintain that content. When I travel, I travel with a videographer and a photographer no matter what.
I can’t tell a story about a working-class family on a premium channel that you have to pay to get.
People are getting cynical about the news. It doesn’t seem like there’s one place to watch where you get the straight dope. You watch the channel that proves your point.
Jason Sudeikis
If you can find the courage, if you have in your heart even the slightest bit of rebellion against injustice, maybe you can channel that and become a leader.
Cherry Jones
I see everything like a movie. I laugh and cry, I smell, touch, see and describe my own experience. I don’t care if this sounds strange; I am not the creator – I am only the channel. The story is given to me.
If you drop a channel, you’re incredibly unpopular, and if you pass along a rate increase, you’re incredibly unpopular.
If you have a YouTube account, you essentially have your own channel, and anybody who subscribes, or any of your friends on YouTube, they’re your audience.
John Cabrera
We must use words to uplift and include. We can use our words to fight back against oppression and hate. But we must also channel our words into action.
CNN has given me a platform to share my experiences. My Web site, YouTube Channel and Facebook page have exposed me to thousands of voters who share my concerns. My lack of seniority has not impeded my ability to communicate in any way.
When I’m channel surfing, and ‘Silence of the Lambs’ comes on, I have trouble turning it off. I wouldn’t say that about ‘Beautiful Mind.’ It’s a good movie, but I’m much more in awe of what Jonathan Demme did with ‘Silence of the Lambs.’
Toby Emmerich
Both the ‘Gregor’ series and ‘The Hunger Games‘ are what I call lightning-bolt ideas. There was a moment where the idea came to me. With ‘The Hunger Games,’ the lightning bolt sort of hit at a moment when I was channel surfing between reality TV and the coverage of the Iraq war.
I wish there was a news channel that really told you what was going on in the world, not just sensationalized news.
I was born in Kodiak, and I was raised in a place called Dutch Harbor out on the Aleutian Islands. There’s a show called the ‘Deadliest Catch‘ on the Discovery Channel. And they film it on Dutch Harbor where I grew up.
We have to take our anger and rage and channel it into building, growing, loving, holding each other up.
It’s kind of like some kind of church for me, playing live. Each show, good people from different pockets of the world come and open their soul and let their spirits mingle and dance. That energy comes up through me, and all I do is channel it; it’s like a circular motion and very sacred.
Goals help you channel your energy into action.
I never watch MTV. I don’t have time to watch TV. And when I do, I’m watching the Discovery Channel. ‘Deadliest Catch: Crab Fishing in Alaska,’ that’s my show.
Carly Schroeder
I’ll watch any show on the History Channel.
The booming popularity of alligator hunting, sparked by reality shows like the History Channel’s ‘Swamp People,’ is easy to understand: It’s an exotic blast of adrenaline. But there’s a culinary upside as well, with gator boasting a delicate light-pink meat that, to me, falls somewhere between veal and wild turkey.
There are two big benefits from moving conversations from a mode where you’re addressing individuals, or groups of individuals, to addressing a channel which is a topic, a project, a functional discipline, or whatever.
I was a big fan of Shia LaBeouf and ‘Even Stevens’ and was like, ‘Oh, man. I would love to be on Disney Channel and have a show,’ because it was what I watched.
The first thing I did on my diet was take the batteries out of the remote control and make myself get up and change the channel. That’s probably the hardest exercise I did.
I love the Discovery Channel. I love all sorts of medical shows.

Before long, I’ll have my own channel – I’ll be like Barney.
I really was interested in doing something for a premium channel like Showtime or HBO, just because you get to really let loose. I think they let their storylines go wherever they want, and it’s really a special place to work.
Ben Schwartz
I go to the movies, and I watch MTV and the Disney Channel. I admit I like ‘Hannah Montana.’
Lexi Thompson
We were very fortunate to be in YouTube in the very beginning. There wasn’t a lot of content on there, so we were pretty easy to find on YouTube. That was really helpful in growing our channel.
Ian Hecox
It is different in Russia. Here there is a television channel devoted to opera and dance.
I’ve become a lot more tolerant; I think before I talk. I can take a lot now. I don’t get as angry as I used to. Whenever I do, I channel my anger into my work.
Everything you see on my channel was made by me – no one else was involved.
I’m so grateful for what Disney gave me and the experiences that I got, but at the end of the day, I can do so much more than what I did on that channel and in those movies.
Staying composed, focused, and effective under pressure are all about your mentality. People who successfully manage crises are able to channel their emotions into producing the behavior that they want.
Interreligious dialogue is extremely important for religious people as well as secular people or non-believers. They should participate, and they should be encouraged to have interreligious dialogue, because dialogue is a channel or an instrument to promote intimacy between individual.
I have a science YouTube channel where I will sometimes use my engineering skills to build things such as the world’s largest Super Soaker or the Guinness World Record world’s largest Nerf gun.
Mark Rober
I think it’s healthy for a person to be nervous. It means you care – that you work hard and want to give a great performance. You just have to channel that nervous energy into the show.
VH1 is seriously competing for best channel ever.
How Hungama became the top children’s channel in India is interesting because we were up against, not just Disney, but also Time Warner‘s Cartoon Network. It was an illustration of the fact that for any company that wants to grow in emerging markets, localizing content is the key.
