Q What information can you give me on Ben Mankiewicz, host of numerous programs on the Turner Classic Movies channel? His knowledge of movies, actors and other cinematic information is awesome.
—Domonic Fiorino, Boone, Iowa

Mankiewicz was a correspondent for The Best Damn Sports Show, Period for Fox Sports, filled in as an anchor on MSNBC's morning show and had guest acting roles on TV shows The Practice and The District before landing his spot as weekend host for the Turner Classic Movies channel. "If I'd been able to invent a TV job, this would be it," says Mankiewicz, who also can be heard on Sirius satellite radio co-hosting the daily talk show The Young Turks. "I love movies, and getting the chance to tell stories about movies to an audience of people who love movies is the perfect opportunity."
