Humorist Tim Sample, famous both for his presentation and his Maine accent, has sold well over a million copies of his books, albums, and videos (including four albums and a video for the Bert and I company). In the summer of 1993, Tim was recruited by Charles Kuralt as a correspondent for the Emmy Award winning TV Show CBS News Sunday Morning.

Born in Fort Fairfield, Maine on January 30, 1951 and raised in Boothbay Harbor, Tim's primary year-round residence since 2003 has been in Brunswick, Maine, and despite the traveling his career calls him to do he has never lived anywhere other than in Maine.
