Julia Child. Mister Rogers. LeVar Burton…Me. WOW. I’m very fortunate to be able to kick of 2018 with the FANTASTIC news that Stories from the Stage the storytelling show from WGBH, WORLD Channel, & Massmouth Inc. that I co-host has been picked up for nightly national broadcast on PBS– The show will air Monday-Friday, premiering Tuesday, January 2, 2018 at 12:00 a.m. ET on all station-branded PBS platforms (check local listings) following AMANPOUR ON PBS and BEYOND 100 DAYS reaching approximately 93% of US households. I’m really proud of the show that we’ve put together through the hard work and dedication of so many talented people (with a special shoutout to my co-host Theresa Okokon) and I’m thrilled that even more people will now have the chance to see it and hopefully be inspired to share their own stories. Synopses for the first 14 episodes can be found online and we’re already taping the second round. Tune in and take care!

So 2017 has been a pretty crazy & productive year for me, particularly with regard to some great TV opportunities. In the past 12 months I won a New England Emmy, shot another group of episodes for the the CBS Boston production that earned me the Emmy, and became co-host of the national storytelling TV show Stories From The Stage from PBS & WORLD Channel. I just learned some pretty great news about that last part in particular but I’ll stay mum until there’s an official press release which should be soon.
Anyway, I was really feeling this blue velvet blazer during our most recent taping. You can catch both it and some SUPREMELY talented storytellers on the latest episode of Stories From The Stage. This one is a timely look at the theme of “Holiday Horror” and it’s available on your TV wherever you get your PBS/WORLD Channel fix. You can check your local listings (and view the full episode for the time being) right HERE. And as a bonus, in addition to hosting and interviewing tellers like I always do I also got to tell one of my own favorite stories to close out the episode. Super fun!

Well here’s a new/awesome/weird feeling: I’m in the TV Guide! Tune in on Monday 10/16 if you’d like to catch my National TV debut as host of Episode 2 of “Stories From The Stage”. The show is a collaboration between WORLD Channel, WGBH, & Massmouth Inc. highlighting real stories from real people told in a relaxed and welcoming environment. But before you catch me make sure to tune in on 10/9 to catch the series debut hosted by my amazing co-host Theresa Okokon. I believe it will be at 9:30ET but be sure to double check the listings in your market. I’m ridiculously psyched about this project which only exists due to the hard work of so many talented staff, crew members, & storytellers. I’m so thankful for the opportunity and I can’t wait to tune in! You can check out the series trailer HERE.

This was what I refer to as a “sport coat gig”. I was very happy for the opportunity to rock the WGBH studios last week for an outstanding evening of “Holiday Horrors” storytelling with MassMouth. I was really hoping they’d let me run up on the Masterpiece Theater set… alas it was not to be. Still an incredibly rad night though!
