A lifetime of “never taking no for an answer” took John from migrant farm work and poverty to more than 30 years at ABC News and the anchor desk at 20/20 and Primetime. Along the way, he broke through barriers, won the highest accolades, and became a role model for many. Known for truly connecting with audiences and leaving them uplifted and inspired, John delivers a powerful message of believing in one’s self, never giving up and always, always doing the right thing.
As host and creator of What Would You Do?, the highly-rated, hidden camera ethical dilemma newsmagazine, John has literally become “the face of doing the right thing” to millions of fans. This work and his many achievements were recently recognized with honorary Doctorate degrees from Davis & Elkins College in West Virginia and Utah Valley University.
