GUEST HOSTING ON NY TV!
Our Founder, Saranne Rothberg guest hosted "The Conversation" live on MNN in NYC, (Time Warner Channel 56, Fios 34, RCN 83 and MNN Channel 2.) Her first guest was LeAnetta Future Robinson, a young Humanitarian, Singer, and Star of Bravo's newest series, "The First Family of Hip Hop". LeA is the granddaughter of Sylvia Robinson (of blessed memory). Sylvia was a Singer, Musician, Record Label Executive and the woman credited as being "The Mother of Hip-Hop". (We all still sing Rapper's Delight by Sugarhill Gang and many more rap hits!) LeAnetta also has volunteered at ComedyCures for years.
Saranne was then joined on the live broadcast by young Social Entrepreneur and Ecuadorian Chocolatier Alejandro Cadena of Hoja Verde.
("The Conversation" is a Community Affairs program where one to three unusual, accomplished, unique and/or skilled men and women of various backgrounds, religion, race and persuasion are interviewed. Various points of view are presented from a perspective of history, geography and arts. (Thank you Shannon Taylor for inviting me to guest host your show and having me on as a guest several times before to discuss ComedyCures.org and the NY Times Best Seller, "Radical Remission".)
