An hour of TV talk with TVLine’s Kim Roots and special guest host Richard Simms
January 23, 2015
Hosted by Dan J. Kroll
FRIDAY, JANUARY 23 (6pm ET/3pm PT) This week on Kroll Call, who says you need a Kroll to have a Kroll Call? Richard Simms has the gift of gab — and a passion for all forms of entertainment. This week, while host Dan J Kroll is on assignment, Richard steps in to host an hour of television chatter. By day, Richard is the executive editor of Soaps In Depth magazine. He is a contributor for Kroll Call and Sweatpants & Coffee. He is also the author of several books, including his latest scary-with-a-sense-of-humor release, Homesick. Kim Roots got her start in journalism when the arts editor of The New Haven Register gave her a shot as a student reporter. After graduating he turned her love of TV (and many childhood summers spent soaking up Days of Our Lives storylines) into an editor gig at Soaps In Depth. She covered All My Children and ultimately became senior news editor, then took a few years to eat cookies/work as a writer/editor at Girl Scouts of the USA before landing at TVLine.
