John Johnston is a three-time Emmy Award-winning journalist, experienced show runner and executive producer who’s created and built hit TV shows from the ground up. John brings more than 30 years of experience and insights in media to Clarity’s southern Californian clients.
What makes John’s trusted counsel as a media coach uniquely valuable is not just the length, but the breadth of his experience. He is one of the few media experts who has excelled on both sides of the camera, in the field as an on-air correspondent for nationally syndicated shows and behind the camera as an executive producer. That experience gives John a keen understanding of what contributes to a flawless media appearance, and he teaches Clarity’s West Coast clients how to achieve that. He has worked with well-known celebrities, athletes, celebrity stylists and beauty experts, fashion spokespeople and executives, authors, network show runners for AMC, tech/digital clients and many more.
John started as a local, hard news, reporter. For eight years he covered the biggest stories in the world as an on-air correspondent for the groundbreaking, syndicated television news magazine, “A Current Affair”. John’s unique sensibilities and insight also brought a rare, human quality to the world of sports, helping to create and shape several shows on Fox Sports Net.
