Lucie Arnaz Luckinbill is an actor, singer, dancer, and producer. She has been married to the talented actor, playwright and director Larry Luckinbill for 40 years. They have 5 marvelous children and most recently two amazing grandchildren. Lucie started her career in showbiz as the daughter of the legendary Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz. But as we all know, famous parents only takes you so far. Lucie has had a steady career in TV, film, and theatre. What’s even more remarkable is that even though Lucie is now more in demand as ever, she is an extreme activist in both politics and the environment. TV personality Steve Greenberg and PR expert Lois Whitman-Hess, of the Lying on the Beach podcast, recently talked to Lucie about how she successfully does it all.
It’s very possible that one day there is going to be a movie about Steve Rothaus. If we were smart we would buy the rights right now. He is a living legend. At the Miami Herald, he became (one of) the first dedicated LGBT mainstream journalists nearly 20 years ago. He probably was the first, but Rothaus is too modest to allow us to proclaim that. Rothaus has been quoted as saying that he wanted “the Herald to be out front, ahead of all the other news organizations in South Florida in terms of how we covered the LGBT community and how we treated people.” TV personality Steve Greenberg, and PR expert Lois Whitman-Hess, of the Lying on the Beach podcast, talked to Steve about his remarkable barrier breaking career.
There should be a statue of Robin Raskin in front of the Sands Expo and Convention Center in Las Vegas with an inscription that says “She turned this arena into a global stage for the introduction of some of the most innovative products in the world.” As founder of the company “Living In Digital Times,” Robin solicited early stage companies to exhibit their remarkable inventions in this section of CES. She grouped them in sensible product categories for their debut: Digital Health, Digital Money, Fitness Tech, Baby Tech, Family Tech, Transforming EDU, MommyTech TV, Beauty Tech, and Wearables. Each area had their own summit plus events. These companies also take part in other events during the week of CES including a FashionWare runway show, Mobile Apps Showdown, Last Gadget Standing, Robots on the Runway and the KAPi Awards. In this episode of “Lying on the Beach” with TV personality Steve Greenberg and PR expert Lois Whitman-Hess, Robin explains how she manages to be at the forefront of technology all the time.
There is an important reason why you didn’t get that new job, project assignment, sales order, or recognition for your current efforts. The man who probably has had one of the most successful careers that any working professional can ever hope for, tells you why in the current episode of Lying on the Beach with TV personality Steve Greenberg and PR expert Lois Whitman. Frank O’Connell, the man who was the top guy at HBO, Fox Video, Reebok and other major companies, gives you the BEST business advice you will ever get in just 25 minutes. No jargon, no hype — just the facts.
If you want to drive a busy person crazy, just post an out-of-the office email reply that you are on vacation for a week and then don’t delete it for many days after you return to work. It happens all the time. Many workers hide behind out-of-the-office replies because they want to take advantage of this common business practice. TV personality Steve Greenberg and PR expert Lois Whitman-Hess discuss the culprits and why they shouldn’t be working in the digital age.
More and more journalists are talking about not attending certain press parties and conferences because the focus is no longer on them. The rooms are now filled with way too many “here today, gone tomorrow,” social media influencers. They are the ones who are getting “first class” accessibility to new products and scoops. Watch out corporate America and event planners. If you keep treating editorial writers and broadcasters like second class citizens, you will find yourselves without high profile coverage. TV personality Steve Greenberg and PR rep Lois Whitman discuss the dilemma.
In one of the most unusual documentaries ever made, Alec Baldwin portrays John DeLorean, while real footage from the automaker’s life, is interspersed between scenes. It’s a wild ride. TV personality Steve Greenberg, and PR consultant Lois Whitman—Hess, waste no time dishing on what they think is fact or fiction. You decide.
Everyone who sees “Three Identical Strangers,” a documentary about a set of triplets who were adopted and unknowingly separated at birth, gets into a debate with others about whether “nature or nurture” were forces that made them the men they are today. None of the men, nor their families, knew about the others for 19 years.
Steve Greenberg and Lois Whitman-Hess, hosts of the “Lying on the Beach” podcast, have been searching for the answer to that question ever since they saw Director Tim Wardle’s documentary a few days ago. They don’t want to spoil the story for you but they will say a happy reunion turns into an unfortunate upset. You start to question your life, and wonder how you would have reacted if you were one of the triplets: Robert Shafran, Edward Galland, and David Kellman.

Steve Greenberg, a monthly Today Show contributor, and TV personality on 20-plus morning news shows around the country and Lois Whitman-Hess the co-owner of HWH PR, and author of the blog DigiDame, discuss their lack of “likes” on social media.
The two of us often commiserate that we don’t get enough “likes” on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, to show the rest of the world that we matter. We are both proud of our accomplishments, but not with the number of likes we get. We know we are not alone. Millions of people feel the same way.
