They become more comfortable and confident with my media training. My on-camera training technique helps them look and sound better on-camera.
Having conducted more than 20,000 interviews, I know what makes news, how to craft messages that cut through the clutter, how to tell a story – and how not to.
I have experience as a print reporter, a broadcast journalist and continuing contributor to a leading Internet magazine. During my career in television news, I was the recipient of six Emmy awards. Two of my Emmys were for “Outstanding On Camera Talent.”
One year, the Associated Press named me “Outstanding Reporter.”
I’ve seen it all. As a young cub reporter in Sacramento, one of my first assignments was to cover then Governor Ronald Reagan. I went on to interview him as President of the United States and interviewed several other presidents in my career. I followed Pope John Paul II around the country, camped in Alaska after the Exxon Valdez oil spill, was shot at during the Contra War in Nicaragua and went yachting with Queen Elizabeth. My work has been featured in many national newscasts and shown at the Smithsonian Institution.
Besides heading up Manny Ramos Communications I am also proud to be an associate of the Civiello Communications Group one of the leading media training and presentation coaching companies in the country.
I am an instructor at the Academy of Art University in San Francisco. I have lectured at the University of California-Berkeley, San Francisco State University, and San Jose State University. I had the honor of being inducted into the Silver Circle of the National Association of Television Arts and Sciences and am a member of the National Association of Hispanic Journalists. I am also a member of the Broadcast Legends organization.
I live in Marin County, California with my incredible wife, Robin, where we take orders from our amazing daughter, Gracie and very energetic golden retriever, Sunshine.
