JOE SIMON – LIFE LESSONS, is scheduled to air on CNN Monday, April 16 at 10:00 AM and 2:00 PM. The piece was filmed in Joe Simon’s studio in New York City, as part of a segment produced by Dr. Sanjay Gupta. Dr. Gupta is the chief medical correspondent for the health and medical unit at CNN, and his team interviewed Joe to find out how he has lived such a long and productive life. Joe revealed his secret, which we will leave for the air date.
The CNN team filmed Joe at work on a brand-new illustration of Captain America, discussed his career and the creation of his famous character, then went with Joe to a location filming at 330 West 42nd Street in Manhattan. That’s the famous McGraw-Hill Building, which was the headquarters for Timely Comics when they hired Joe as the first editor in chief for the company that would one day become Marvel Comics.
