The Nanny Nine: Dennis Powell, Senior Producer ABC News and AARP Inside E Street
Dennis Powell didn’t plan on being a television producer. He likens it to “How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying”. After studying theatre in school, he became a clerk in the ABC business office, moved on to Video Tape Editor at ABC News, and then advanced to Producer. Over thirty years years later he is still in the journalism field. During that time frame, Dennis was a Senior Producer for ABC’s World News, covering events surrounding the President, legislation on Capitol Hill, Department of Transportation & Department of Homeland Security. Most recently he worked on ABC News ‘This Week with George Stephanopoulos’. Dennis is currently the Senior Editorial Producer for Inside E Street, a public affairs show produced by AARP, airing on most PBS stations.
