Randy Douthit Career Achievements

Producing great shows is not easy. Many professionals have invested their time in this industry without good results. On the other hand, Randy Douthit has won over twenty awards because of his achievements in the complex industry. The Oregon native loves his career and has always given it his all. When growing up, Randy and his family lived with their grandparents. The family got their livelihood from farming.

Production was an area Randy Douthit began when he was only nine years. One day, when selling tickets in his neighbourhood, Randy discovered the career he would focus on. Randy joined television when he was twenty-three, and since then, he has enjoyed his work.

His first job was at the KGW based in Portland, Oregon. The local television allowed Randy to direct newscasts, remote broadcasts, commercials and public affairs programs. Although this was the first time Randy Douthit was working for television, he did extremely well. The company transferred the business leader to their sister station in Seattle in 1975. The new television, KING-TV, wanted Randy to direct an award-winning children’s show, How Come. KING–TV allowed Randy to produce several children’s programs and commercials. His excellent production caught the attention of everyone.

Randy began working with Judge Judy twenty-five years ago, marking an incredible milestone in the business leader’s life. Randy worked for several great companies, including CNN, but he believes his greatest milestone is working for Judge Judy. The career in production has made Randy discover some important aspects.

His greatest discovery in production was that mistakes are unavoidable. When a mistake happens during television production, Randy learns fast. Moving on fast when mistakes happen is a great lesson Randy is teaching upcoming professionals in the industry. Production also requires people to learn quickly. When Randy was new to CNN, he was asked to produce a show about the situation in the Middle East. The veteran producer had only twelve hours to learn and digest the history and current activities in the region. The job made the award-winning producer understand many global market events. Randy believes in keeping his activities in the industry as simple as possible.
