Dr. Sanjay Gupta, the Chief Medical Correspondent at CNN, appears in most high profile stories related to health issues – Michael Jackson and propofol, Haiti’s earthquake victims, Obamacare etc. He was vetted as Surgeon General by the Obama administration. He somehow finds time to continue to be a surgeon and write successful books.
To me, even more impressive is his Sunday show where he profiles innovators on the “Next List”. The group is eclectic but inspiring – uber designer Yves Behar, Danish architect Bjarke Ingels, MakerFaire visionary Dale Dougherty and many more archived here. Many have been written about on this blog and my books, but it is great to see his 5-10 minute profiles and interviews with each. I like his interviewing style – he is mostly in background and the camera generous to the innovator and his/her ideas, inventions.
