Tony Schwartz created commercials for over four hundred corporations and products, designed sound for sixteen Broadway shows, and was a four-time winner at the Cannes film festival. For more than thirty years, he produced and hosted a weekly radio show, Around New York, on WNYC. As a specialist in political media, he produced television and radio commercials for the campaigns of two U.S. Presidents, as well as for hundreds of candidates at all levels of government. A recipient of three honorary doctorates, Schwartz lectured worldwide and taught media studies at Columbia, New York University, Harvard and Fordham. He produced and recorded over a dozen commercial records; one of them, New York Taxi Driver, was among the first 100 recordings inducted into the National Recording Registry. In 2007, Schwartz’s entire body of work was acquired by the Library of Congress.
