About Ken Lindner

Ken Lindner owns and is the Chief Executive Officer of the world’s most successful and well-respected newscaster and host representation company, Ken Lindner & Associates, Inc.

Ken graduated Magna Cum Laude from Harvard University in Social Anthropology. His course selection was centered on the human thought process and conflict resolution. During his college career, he wrote an honors thesis on decision-making that received national attention. This paper was based upon empirical research done with hundreds of respondents. He studied how these individuals thought, ordered their values, and made their decisions when exposed to certain situations and stimuli. This thesis was also awarded a grade of Magna Cum Laude.

While at Harvard, Ken was the Captain and the #1 player on the Varsity Tennis Team. He captured the Princeton Invitational Indoor Intercollegiate Doubles Championship, won numerous singles and doubles tennis titles, and defeated Arthur Ashe in a match that took place one year before Ashe won his Wimbledon Singles Title. In addition, he was the Men’s National Open Paddle Tennis Singles and Doubles Champion.

Ken then attended Cornell Law School, so that he could further study conflict resolution and learn to think through and analyze issues in a more orderly fashion. It was there that he developed his strong interest in the First Amendment. In 1978, he was awarded his Juris Doctorate degree.

Upon graduation from Cornell, he worked as an attorney in the Business Affairs Department of the William Morris Agency. Within two years, he became Assistant to the President, and then an agent in the News Department. Thereafter, he was promoted to Vice President in charge of the West Coast News Division. In 1988, he left William Morris and founded Ken Lindner & Associates, Inc. Approximately 95 percent of his clients followed him.

During the past 27 years, Ken has specialized in all areas of broadcasting, i.e., as a talent representative and as an attorney who has negotiated and worked on more than 3,000 broadcasting and other television-related contracts. He has derived his greatest sense of accomplishment by helping to develop the careers of some of this county’s most prominent and influential current and next-generation broadcast journalists. Ken has devoted his career to seeing what “can be” in broadcast journalists. (“Namasté KLA”) He loves identifying extraordinary talent, helping his clients grow through crafting personalized multi-media and multi-platform Choreographies, and placing clients in venues that showcase their unique gifts and strengths.

Ken drew on his Broadcasting expertise for his first book, Broadcasting Realities (1999), which is considered the standard in the psychology of broadcasting for broadcast journalists and those aspiring to be on-air. The aim of the book is to acquaint and equip his readers with the requisite knowledge to reach informed and enhancing career decisions. All royalties from this book have been donated to charity.

Thereafter, Ken wrote Crunch Time™: 8 Steps to Making the Right Life Decisions At The Right Times(2004). This book enables and empowers the reader to make constructive and self-enhancing career and life decisions.

Ken lives in Los Angeles with his wonderful wife, Melinda, and their twins, Mary and Tristan.
