Mike Zimmerman is a bestselling writer and editor in the media business for more than 30 years. He’s held executive and senior level editorial positions at some of the biggest magazine and book publishing brands in the world. He’s written in virtually every fiction and nonfiction genre there is. Thanks to writing several dozen books, hundreds of magazine pieces, and roughly 1,000 book jackets, more than 100 million people have read his work (yup, the math checks out).
His journalistic travels have taken him to the Trojan condom factory (where approximately 125,000 rubbers were manufactured during his visit), on a three-week tour of the U.S. to find a cure for back pain, and onto the airwaves as a semi-regular morning zoo radio guest in Bend, Oregon.
Mike has interviewed more than 100 public figures and written 50+ celebrity cover stories. His profiles include elite athletes (LeBron James, Drew Brees, Tom Brady), A-list actors (Robert Downey Jr, Denzel Washington, Scarlett Johanssen), and many other personalities across business, music, sports, and entertainment.
He’s explored an abandoned mine in the mountains of central Mexico with Matthew McConaughey, fishtailed down Sunset Boulevard in an Audi with Jason Statham, and been smuggled onto a Christopher Nolan set courtesy of Hugh Jackman.
He’s been invited into the homes of Mark Wahlberg, Derek Jeter, Anthony Hopkins, and Frank Sinatra (no, Frank wasn’t there; he’s dead). He was also confirmed to tour the bedroom of Olivia Munn, but the story got cancelled.
