NGT&F president Tim Kelly said, "Over the past three years, Michael has increased the output of the National Geographic’s Specials unit from six hours a year on PBS to 40 hours for PBS, Fox and the National Geographic Channels. His team has produced some superb event programmes, recently setting a new ratings record for National Geographic’s US Channel with Inside the Secret Service.
