With a resume that includes productions for nine networks and ranges from documentaries to musicals, Don Roy King is one of the most versatile and experienced directors in the television industry today. He has directed more live network television than any director in the history of the medium and his network assignments have taken him to twenty countries and thirty-eight states.
Mr. King has won three other Emmys for his work - one for directing The Mike Douglas Show; another for producing and directing Toys on the Town, a musical special with Shields and Yarnell; and the third for heading the design team that revamped the graphic look of CBS News. He has also been nominated for twenty-one Emmys as a writer, producer and director. Other recognition includes two Ohio State Awards, an American Bar Association Award, a San Francisco State Award, a New York Public Relations Award and three Golden Quills. (Mr. King is most proud, however, of several amateur boxing titles he won in his thirties. His ring career, by the way, had nothing at all to do with the tonsorially-challenged man whose name he shares.)
