About the Author, Richard Croker

Photo of Author Richard Croker (by Joel Westbrook)Two of Richard’s great grandfathers fought for the Confederacy in the American Civil War. Samuel Freer Croker was wounded twice; once at Second Manassas (Brawner’s Farm) and later at Petersburg.

After a stint in the army Richard returned to school (Georgia State University) to finish his bachelor’s degree and then went to work for Ted Turner’s fledgling “superstation.” He remained at Turner Broadcasting for 18 years, the bulk of which was spent writing, producing and directing for the sports division. He worked on Atlanta Braves Baseball, NBA Basketball, NFL Football, four PGA Championships, two Olympics and one Goodwill Games.

He left Turner to become an independent documentary filmmaker and his credits have appeared on Superstation TBS, TLC and The Discovery Digital Networks.

Richard lives in Marietta, Georgia with Terry, his wife of thirty-something years. Their daughter, Amanda, is a media consultant in Atlanta.
