After many years in Los Angeles working in the entertainment industry (television and motion pictures), Billy Ingram returned to his hometown in North Carolina to do some writing. He created a website (Homeroom) in 1994 to get some sense of what kind of book the public might respond to.
The TVparty section of Homeroom started getting national press almost immediately. In early 1997, TVparty.com was born. Together with the contributions of people far and wide, Ingram has made TVparty the internet's premiere television history website, a celebration of man's electronic achievement.
TVparty.com has been featured on CNBC, CNN, and in major newspapers all over the country including the Houston Chronicle, Newsday, San Jose Mercury News, USA Today, Los Angeles Times, Washington Post, The Hollywood Reporter, and in nationally syndicated columns.
