Anthony Nalli is a longtime pilot, and the executive producer and one of the hosts of the popular PBS television show “The Aviators.”
But he had never flown a helicopter before climbing aboard a simulator at the University of North Dakota’s School of Aerospace Sciences in Grand Forks.
He had everybody in stitches for 30 years, but offstage Johnny Carson was not the life of the party. Who he was and how he got that way will be revealed May 14 when PBS’ “American Masters” airs the documentary, “Johnny Carson: King of Late Night.”

He began studying at the Guild Hall in his native London when he was just 13, snagging his first professional job at 16.

(And you are probably counting the minutes until Sunday’s two-hour season finale.) Here are some of the reasons I’m hooked.
PBS officials say hackers have cracked the network's website, posting a phony story claiming dead rapper Tupac Shakur was alive in New Zealand, and a group that claimed credit for the hacking complained about a recent "Frontline" investigative news program on WikiLeaks.
Potlucks are a great way to sample a variety of dishes without having to slave away all day in the kitchen. Herald Food Editor Jeff Tiedeman tells you where to go for pointers — and recipes — for hosting a potluck party at Chef Jeff.
