The best writing in the world, the best photography in the world fall flat unless the editing breathes life into those words and pictures and allow them to sing. I have worked in many markets across the nation: New York City, Los Angeles, Houston...
Good editors are hard to come by. Great editors are a rarity.
Jim Ring is a great editor and it has been my privilege to work with him. He takes my words and my photographer’s pictures and weaves together a tapestry that I could barely imagine myself. I have never worked with an editor who throws himself into a project as fully as Jim does. I have always given a detailed log of video and sound to editors in the past, but Jim doesn’t need my logs. He does it on his own and always seems to find the perfect natural sound for our projects that I always seem to overlook.
Editing is something that most people can learn, but what Jim does in that editing bay far exceeds anything learned. It’s intuitive. It’s genius. And it’s a gift.

Jim Ring is one of the most talented people I have worked with in my 40 years in the news business. Hard working, professional, dedicated are some of the words that come to my mind when I talk about Jim's outstanding work.
We have worked on dozens of investigative stories together, along with some incredibly interesting feature stories that Jim made come to life with his editing skills and talent. He's simply one of the best!
