Local Wine Blogger Signs TV Deal
Time to hit the prime time! Okay, well it’s not quite prime time, but I’m excited to announce that I’ve signed an agreement to appear on a local TV program with KXLY’s Mike Gonzalez. HFNTV’s In the Kitchen airs Saturday morning on KXLY in the Spokane area and in Tri-Cities, Yakima, and Alberta. The potential viewing audience is 600,000 people. In the Kitchen showcases local food fare at area restaurants. The addition of a weekly wine segment is a fantastic combination.
Each week I’ll showcase a Northwest winery (Washington, Oregon, Idaho, and Alberta), vineyard, or wine event. The five minute segments will be a great way for wineries to be introduced to a large audience base.
In addition to the weekly segment, HFNTV and I will be exploring the options for developing a regionally focused wine program of which I will be the host. This is all very exciting and something that I had visions of when I first launched the drinknectar.com blog in November 2009. Thanks everyone for your ongoing support and encouragement along the way.
ATTENTION WINERIES: If you are interested in learning more about appearing on HFNTV’s In the Kitchen, please email Josh at email@example.com.
