I’m about to lose control and I think I like it!
OMG, the Marketing “Dec” came from Public Television yesterday for the TV show, and I am SO excited, but I AM trying to stay in control. I can hardly believe this is happening and I’m almost afraid to be too happy for fear it will go up in smoke. I think I’m going to knock on the table (it’s wood) to make sure the luck stays around!
The thought of this show actually going on the air, not only being that it’s my own show, but the fact that it’s something important to me and others, is overwhelming.
I grew up on Public Television and it pains me that they’ve had some difficult years recently. More and more funding has been taken away from them, making it necessary to obtain funding for new programs through underwriters. I will be doing the same for my program.
Being the first and only vegetarian cooking show on the air is a huge deal. Vegetarianism is becoming more popular for ethical and health reasons and the success of this program is important. I take it seriously and with the support of underwriters and the guidance of an amazing marketing executive and an award winning producer who has been chosen for me, I plan to do my absolute best to make it a GO.
Potential underwriters…. I’m gunning for you! If you’d like to be part of this nuclear reaction, with all sorts of marketing opportunities available to you, just let me know. I’m counting on you!

How wonderful! Good luck! I will certainly be watching. I love love love public television!! I grew up watching The Frugal Gourmet and Yan Can Cook. I have thought about how great it would be if there was a veggie show–maybe a few vegan recipes in there too? Keep us posted!
I am planning to talk “vegan” on recipes that lean vegetarian, so people are aware of possible vegan alternatives to what I’m making!
Hooray and congrats! Well done!!
Thanks so much. What fun to “see” you here! Talk to you back in the Twitterverse!
OMG! Awesome! I ditched cable a LOOOOOOOONG time ago and my HD antenna still gets PBS! I must know when this airs! CONGRATS!
OMG back to you! I’m happy you’re so excited. I’ve been a fan of PBS since I was little and I’m so happy to be doing the show with them. I’ll keep everyone updated as we progress, you can be sure of that!
Thanks so much,
Thanks so much. We’re expecting it to be picked up by PBS stations across the country, so we’ll be pretty…. darn…. national! Fingers crossed!
Congratulations! I am so happy for you. I hope it goes national as well.
