About the Author
Jim Edelman’s path to television producer started right where you’d think—in radio. UTR fulfills his lifelong mission to combine the best of his sales skills with his unmatched creativity. His love of storytelling and searching for offbeat, little-known stories makes the discoveries of UTR a perfect ending. Jim attended many colleges but learned more working for the Detroit Pistons, as a Ski Instructor, Cycle Racing Producer, Tomato Picker, and Baker’s Assistant. He lives in Salem, Michigan and insists that he’s quite normal despite owning three cats. Tom Daldin is an Emmy award-winning producer, actor, and writer who has created programs that have aired across Michigan and around the U.S. and in Canada on PBS. He has also won several best actor awards in both commercial television and industrial films. Tom, his wife, Cathy, and their children have turned Michigan into their vacation playground, exploring its many wonders and attractions. Tom loves people and loves where he lives.
