About Us

One night, I had enough of the overwhelming, bad news bombarding our channels 24/7! My wife and I decided that it was simply not healthy to watch such negative information before going to sleep. In a quest for more balance in the reporting of what goes on in the world, Only Good News was born.

Created to deliver the antidote, the mission of the company's OnlyGood TV studio is to deliver the most heartwarming and uplifting videos to make you feel good. I teamed with a top storyteller from the broadcast entertainment industry to chronicle a positive movement, which unites and connects those of us that believe in the best of mankind.

Only Good News discovers great tales about real people and shines the spotlight on those whose actions are inspiring with a positive social impact. We are committed to providing a hopeful narrative on humanity and develop original videos of individuals and organizations focused on overcoming adversity, paying it forward, kindness, gratitude and happiness.

We invite you to join us in celebrating those who are doing things to build a better world and effecting good work throughout communities around the globe. Share our stories with your world and send us yours so that together we can make a difference.

Blind Waiter Serves Up Diner Classics and Life Lessons

** As we wind down to the final days of this difficult year, OGTV is tipping our hat to all of the essential workers on the front lines with this uplifting story about a New Jersey man who has found a way to do this difficult job for years, even without his eyesight! **

The flickering neon sign reflects eerily off the aging, chrome exterior; a long smooth marble counter with spinning stools draws your gaze left and right as you enter; the checkered linoleum floor seeps under the rows of back-to-back leather booths enveloped by the rain streaked wrap-around windows. You may think you've entered a typical American roadside eatery, but your experience here will be anything but ordinary.

You have just stepped into the Bendix Diner, a staple in Hasbrouck Heights, New Jersey since the 1940's. It's no surprise that The Bendix can serve up a sizzling Burger with deep fried onion rings and a frothy chocolate shake. What is unique about this meal is the waiter who delivers it to your table – his name is John Diakakis, and he is blind.
