Front Row Seat to History with Edward N. Eisen

“What most of us read in newspapers or watch on TV — in time becomes — history. Yet some of us over the years have had the remarkable good fortune of recording that history. And so it was with me.”

Ed has worked in radio, televison, and public relations. He was a top 40 DJ, a TV producer, booth announcer, career counselor and read books for the blind. He was the first person of the Jewish faith chosen to represent two popes during the 41 International Eucharistic Congress.

In 1975, he met and ate chicken soup with Mother Teresa at the Archdiocese of Philadelphia. On another occasion, boxing champ Joe Frazier autographed his glove, scrawling the words: “To Ed Eisen, Boogie, Boogie. Joe Frazier.” The glove sits in a treasured spot in the Eisens’ library.

As a reporter for three major metros – The Philadelphia Inquirer, the former Philadelphia Bulletin and The Fort Lauderdale News, Eisen had a front-row seat to history. 

Two years before the assassination of Martin Luther King, he interviewed the civil rights leader at Ebenezer Baptist Church in Philadelphia.

He is the recipient of a number of journalism awards, top among them was a Freedoms Foundation Award for an article written in 1957. It was titled, “My Job: Protecting America’s Freedoms.” The piece was written while Ed was stationed in Karlsruhe, Germany with the 7th U.S. Army.

Ed is also the author of a book subtitled: Soul for Sale: Confessions of a Philadelphia Spin Doctor. The memoir cautions young people seeking careers in high paying jobs to think twice before going for the gold. “You may regret that decision,” he warns. “Go for what makes you want to get up in the morning and run to work. I did. And I never looked back,” he says. The book is available for free on the Internet.
