Along with endorsements from Mike Huckabee, Steve Doocy and more, Starnes’ television and radio appearances have echoed their praise. “Starnes takes those who won’t be able to put down the book — with him on a vivid journey where he reaches to the bottom of his soul for answers. And when he comes up chuckling through it all, readers, both through smiles and tears, will have connected in a profound way with a storyteller who has found his voice,” says Baptist Life.
To kick off the book’s “Dipstick” tour, Pathway Press held a book launch on Tuesday Mar. 3 at the American Bible Society in New York City. Starnes will be making stops in Atlanta, Chicago, Orlando and Dallas in the month of March in promotion for the book.
Born in the Deep South, Starnes now calls New York City home. And like any good Southern boy, he likes his tea sweet, his chicken fried and his biscuits buttered. Starnes’ work is heard on more than 700 radio stations around the nation, and he also writes a daily blog for Fox News and hosts a bi-weekly religion podcast called, “FOX on Faith.” Starnes has covered a number of high-profile national stories including the 2009 presidential campaign. Todd was assigned to travel with President Obama and covered the candidate onboard his plane. Todd is the winner of an Edward R. Murrow Award and the Associated Press Mark Twain Award for storytelling. Actively involved in his church and mission work, he’s a member of the New York City Road Runners and has completed two marathons and a half dozen half-marathons. He is currently training to participate in an Iron Man Triathlon, and also plays golf. One of his great passions in life is barbecue and one day he hopes to become an officially sanctioned barbecue judge. “They Popped My Hood and Found Gravy on the Dipstick” is Starnes’ first book and includes a forward written by Governor Mike Huckabee.
