Bob Dotson crisscrossed America, more than 4 million miles, searching for people who were practically invisible, the ones who change our lives but don’t take time to tweet and tell us about it.
His long-running series, “The American Story with Bob Dotson,” was a regular feature on “The TODAY Show” for 40 years. He is now a New York Times best-selling author and writes a daily blog that The Society of Professional Journalists cited as the “best in new media.”
Dotson is one of the most honored storytellers of our time. His reporting and storytelling have earned 120 awards around the world. They include six Edward R. Murrow Awards for Best Network News Writing, 10 National Emmys, and top honors from the Kennedy Center, duPont- Columbia and the William Allen White Foundation for journalistic excellence.
He continues producing documentaries. His NBC production “El Capitan’s Courageous Climbers” won seven international film festivals and documentary’s highest honor, the CINE Grand Prize.
Dotson now teaches the next generation of visual storytellers, conducting workshops in Korea, Australia, England, Holland, Switzerland and Austria.
All of Bob’s American stories and documentaries have been digitized and are now available on myamericanstories.com
