RT America: Weighing In On 'Snooki-Mania'

I was happy to accept an invitation from Alyona Minkovski to appear on her show, "The Alyona Show", which streams live at 6 p.m. world wide on RT.com/USA and airs in New York, Los Angeles, and Washington D.C.

Alyona and I spoke about the emergence of MTV's "Jersey Shore", specifically "Snooki", as a symbol for America, and what it might say about our country and its culture to those who don't live here.

Big thanks as well to Patrice Innocenti for helping to book the segment!


CNN Headline News: Chatting About Fake Deaths, Facebook, and The Bieber

On Tuesday evening I was honored to be invited back to CNN Headline News' "Prime News", with newly minted host Vinnie Politan. The panel of four I joined conversed about a plethora of topics - from Justin Bieber to a man in Salem, MA that faked his death to escape a traffic violation (can't make this stuff up).

Funny behind-the-scenes story: I was only briefed on ONE (the Salem story) of the four topics that were discussed. So, on live national TV, I had to be quick on my feet. Very, very quick.

Some of the highlights are below:

Big thanks again to CNN HLN for having me on!


New 'RRS' Logo Needed...

Last week I tweeted about this, but for some reason I didn't blog about it... anyways... I'm on the hunt for a new "RRS" show logo, one that will be used on microphone flags, websites, backdrops, promo photos, mugs, and much more. The current logo is cool, but with the various new methods of branding, I want to be sure this is a logo that I'll stick with for a hot minute. So, any ideas, suggestions, or sketches... drop me a line here. But I'd hurry, as I've already gathered a handful of designers who have until Wednesday at midnight to deliver something to my inbox.
