From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Ernie Manouse (born September 1, 1969 in Binghamton, New York) is an American television interviewer and journalist. He has also worked in radio and has often appeared in print. He currently hosts the interview show InnerVIEWS with Ernie Manouse, produced by HoustonPBS.


Manouse was born Ernest David Manouse of Greek descent in Binghamton, New York. A graduate of Loyola University Chicago, he started his career in television with NBC Network News, then moved into radio with WLS and WLUW in Chicago, and then back to TV at HoustonPBS. Ernie has since worked his way through many aspects of talk shows – from producing sex therapy call-in radio shows Sex Talk and The Phyllis Levy Show to hosting his own brand of chat and magazine programs. He can also be seen on PBS Stations across the country hosting numerous pledge and entertainment specials, including three of public television’s most successful pledge events with financial guru Suze Orman.

In 1996, Ernie moved to Houston, Texas and spent six years hosting and producing the daily magazine program WeekNight Edition which evolved into WeekDAY and became Houston’s most celebrated local television program, earning multiple Emmy and Houston Press Club awards. Manouse shared with Matthew Brawley the 2006 Katie Award for "Outstanding Interview/Talk Show" for the Southern region.[1]

In October 2002, Manouse helped to create and produce the local prime time magazine show The Connection, which he hosted for two years.

In 2004, Manouse launched the syndicated series InnerVIEWS with Ernie Manouse.[2] This award winning series is distributed nationally to PBS stations across the country, and airs in over 80 cities in the U.S. and the Virgin Islands. The show features Manouse in unedited, one to one interviews with noted personalities.

Another area of broadcasting that Manouse has explored is late night talk, and on February 9, 2005, Manouse launched The After Party, combining arts coverage and light-hearted interviews reminiscent of Johnny Carson and Jack Parr.[3] The show received positive reviews from both critics and audiences alike, garnering the coveted Emmy nomination for "Best Entertainment/Variety program" in its first season. The program ended its run on November 15 2006 after over 50 episodes.

Also in 2005, Manouse received his fifth Emmy nomination as "Best On-Air Talent (non-news)" for his body of work at the time.

He also enjoys voice acting. He has appeared in a number of videos from ADV Films including Gilgamesh and Cromartie High School.

Aside from television, Manouse is a Master of Ceremonies and host for community events as diverse as The Houston Pride Parade, the U.S. Military Ball, and The Cattle Baron’s Ball. He serves on the advisory board of both Stages Repertory Theatre and Dominic Walsh Dance Theater. He is also the president of the Houston Gay and Lesbian Film Festival.
