For a good time, I highly recommend being on live TV. On Monday, I was on the PIX11 Morning News in New York City talking about “Back-To-School-Week: Food Swap.” What a blast! ADinfinitum, a public relations agency that promotes healthy lifestyles with brand strategies and campaigns, placed me, and I got to talk about my favorite Olympus Greek Yogurt and two other cool foods, KAMUT® khorasan wheat (more to come) and B-Amazing! (amazingly healthy vegetarian) food bar.
To start, PIX11 is in the “Superman Building,” The Daily News Building, also called The News Building, and the fictional Daily Planet. It was the first vertically soaring, modernistic skyscraper without ornamentation in Manhattan. And look at the 4,000 pound glowing globe in the intact Art Deco lobby, circa 1929. The News Building is easy to get to, near Grand Central Station at 220 East 42nd Street. It is worth the visit.
Up in the station, it is not so fancy: low ceilings, bad coffee, busy bees. Sue Taggart, the owner of ADinfinitum and her team, along with the stylist from the station, arranged the food while I was busy with makeup, mike-up, practice, and changing into my big shoes. (I am vertically challenged and so I need a wardrobe of 5-inch platform heals!) Finally, it is show time with Suki! Sukanya Krishnan of PIX11 Morning News is a real live wire, all about having fun in the morning. And since FUN is my M-O (along with food and nutrition), Suki and I got along great. (Live footage of the segment is available on YouTube for a limited time. See below.)
