Get Ready for Summer Reading!
Terry Tazioli has been in the word business all of his life. A Seattle native, he has a bachelor’s degree in communication from the University of Washington and a master’s in journalism from the University of Missouri. He began work as a reporter at small newspapers in Washington state and then moved to KING-TV in Seattle as a news assignment editor and then producer of Top Story, a nightly news magazine show.
Following several years in broadcast, he went to work for The Seattle Times where he served as editor of Scene, the newspaper’s lifestyle section, and then of Travel. He left the newspaper in 2008, and in 2009 he began working for “Author’s Hour,” a weekly book program produced by TVW, Washington-state’s public affairs network in Olympia, WA. He became host of the national public television program “Well Read” (successor to “Author’s Hour”) three years later when it went on the air. He is now publicist for Events at University Book Store and co-leads a book club with KOMO-TV’s afternoon program Seattle Refined.
He has had a lifelong passion for reading in almost every genre. He is co-author of a New York Times non-fiction best seller, Volcano: The Eruption of Mount St. Helens.
Outside of work, he has been continuously involved in volunteer activities and fundraising. He is a member of the University of Washington School of Communication Hall of Fame.
