About FTVLive.com

FTVLive  is THE TV News Insider website that has been around since 2000.

FTVLive spent over the first decade of its existence being a pay site. If wanted to read the site? You had to be a member (or a hacker) to gain access. 

On February 4, 2013 FTVLive came from out from behind a pay wall and is now offered up free to everyone. The sight continues to grow in web traffic each and every week thanks to the support of some great sponsors that are the best in the TV industry. 

FTVLive has become a must read for anyone that works or wants to work in TV News. We tell it to you straight with an edge, along with some humor (well at least we find it humorous) and don't pander to TV executives like many of the other so called insider websites. 

FTVLive has become one of the most read and powerful websites that covers TV news. The site goes where other sites dare not to.

Rory - VP of Cuteness

Rory joined the FTVLive staff in January of 2015 after being rescued from Clay County Animal Control.

Before being adopted by Scott, Rory was thrown out of a moving car and dumped on the side of a deserted road. 

Since coming to FTVLive, Rory has been promoted from mischief maker to the VP of Cuteness, although he has done his best to keep his former title as long as being an FTVLive VP.

Rory likes to spend most of his days playing with his brothers and sisters (they are cats) and playing with his countless toys.

Rory can often be seen going for walks and chasing lizards outside the FTVLive World Headquarters. 

Rory attended the Medill School of Journalism.
