I am a broadcast journalist, interviewer, live event host, public speaker and panel moderator.  

From 1992-2017, I served as a sports anchor/reporter, covering a wide variety of New York sports stories and anchoring NY1’s nightly show “Sports on 1: The Last Word.”    In 2003, I created a weekly series for NY1 outside the sports department entitled “One on 1 with Budd Mishkin,” profiling influential and intriguing New Yorkers from a wide range of fields.  In all, “One on 1” profiled some 400 prominent New Yorkers: poets and politicians, athletes and artists, the old timers and the rising stars.  It was a dream position for a New York television journalist. 

In addition to my television news work, I host live events and moderate panels at venues throughout New York, including the 92nd St. Y, the Museum of Jewish Heritage, the Museum of the City of New York, Barnes and Noble, the World Science Festival and others.  My guests on stage have included Wynton Marsalis, John Turturro, Kirk Douglas, Suzanne Vega, Ed Koch, Kareem Abdul Jabbar, Harry Belafonte, Gloria Steinem, Graham Nash, Steven Van Zandt and Bob Costas.
