Pat's Personal Portraits: Ken Colburn

Recently we found out, thanks to Edward Snowden, that our government was collecting data from our cell phones. In a world where we already don't trust our government, should we be afraid?

Data Doctor's Ken Colburn says being afraid only comes from not having enough information. However, he says there needs to be a balance between protecting our privacy and protecting our country from terrorists. There is a data set out there that has been collected by NSA, the FBI etc. and there are no rules as to what can or cannot be done with the information.

The emphasis on our discussion was to educate yourself and figure out which technology you are comfortable using, and which you are not.

He's done it all -- and keeps doing it. His career in local Arizona radio and television dates back the late 60s. Pat always stimulates with his thought provoking, opinionated, and entertaining commentaries on the Arizona Morning News while hosting award-winning talkshows like "The McMahon Group" and "The God Show."

"The McMahon Group" features an unpredictable all-star panel where three people from the community get together and give their thoughts on the news of the week. He also hosts "The God Show" on Sunday's where he talks about all aspects of spirituality.

Pat is also well known outside of radio because of his multifaceted career as an actor, producer, recording artist, writer, broadcaster, and one-third of the legendary comedy team that was on TV for 35 years in Arizona, "The Wallace and Ladmo Show."

Through the many experiences of his professional life, Pat has been richly rewarded with 7 Emmys, major national and international radio awards as well as numerous civic, educational, religious and humanitarian awards. Pat was also a recipient of an Honorary Doctorate from Ottawa University, the Arizona Broadcasters Lifetime achievement Award, and has his bronze likeness hanging in the rotunda of the Herberger Theater in recognition of his contributions to Communications & The Arts.
