My grandson came home from his nutrition college class he's taking this semester and was telling me a bit about it. Knowing I'm struggling with weight loss he mentioned that his professor mentioned one of the best on-line sites to join would be SparkPeople emoticon

I am a total KTLA girl, Los Angeles. The entertainment guy is Sam Rubin, that would be a celebrity angle on Chris or Coach Nicole perhaps? The weight loss angle I would go with Wendy or Allie Mc Kay.


Here is my BIG IDEA!!!!

Some of the staff (no names here ) need to drop a few. I think they should do a station team while reporting on it Talk about PR??? People will jump on it, while helping the station staff get healthy!

Try DAWN BAKER of WTOC.com in Savannah, Georgia.

Dawn is great -- she's trying to lose weight and is taking steps to become a runner. I think she'd be interested in SP!

Do or do not. There is no "try".

You should contact ANY of the news stations in Oregon, or Southern Oregon/Northern California; I belive our affliates here are KOTI/KOBI (NBC), KDRV (ABC), and KTVL (CBS). We do have a FOX affliate, though I am not sure of their call letters. I always tell people about Sparkpeople and am amazed that noone has heard of SP! I bought extra copies of The Spark last year, and have given one of them to a coworker, along with copies of Coach Nicoles fitness videos. I am honestly very surprised as to the number of people that have not heard of SparkPeople!!! We need to get the word out more...I LOVE SPARKPEOPLE!!!

Hi Gang,this is the first time I have posted here but my suggestion is WTLV-12 (both NBC and ABC)they are local stations; I recommend you checkout their website at:http://www.firstcoastnews.com and go to contact us; one of their anchors does a nightly healthwatch report on the evening local news and it's done on Mondays as well at noon. emoticon

I suggest WLOX-TV on the MS Gulf Coast and I'd probably contact Karen Abernathy and her email is kabernathy@wlox.com The main number at the station is 228-896-1313.
My dh work there so don't use my name. There's a good group down here on the coast though. Some of them might like to be interviewed. I recommend Randiheather. She's lost lots of weight and looks great!

Mississippi needs SparkPeople, guys! We have one of the highest rates of obesity in the nation, as well as one of the highest rates of diabetes, heart disease, and high blood pressure. We also have a lot of people here like myself who cannot afford a gym or a personal trainer. SparkPeople has helped me to use inexpensive equipment or regular household items to get in a good workout. I think this would appeal to our local population.

The best person here in Jackson, MS would be Stephanie Bell Flynt from WLBT-TV. She does the Medical Matters segment for the station, and the people of WLBT are the most caring news crew we have in town. Her email is stephanie@wlbt.net and the station website is www.wlbt.com.

You always have a choice. No food has the power to make you eat it, and no one else determines your values or priorities. Sure, the situation may be difficult; sometimes you may have to choose between less than ideal options, or even pick the lesser of two evils. But the choice is always yours, and the only way to fail in the long run is to fail to choose.

Good 4 U!! Unfortunately, I'm not even from or live in Memphis. I adopted the Team before State ones were started since there wasn't any locally sited ones near me.

I became Leader due to only a handful participating & the original Leader was invisible- she actually notified me that I was Team Leader! The Team still seems un-motivated & only the few interact (about 4) on a daily basis.

Hi, I am in New York City and there is a local channel called NY1 on the cable networks that play news 24hours a day. They report on everything, and I have gotten some really helpful information and tips from them. I sent in a request for a segment to be done on sparkpeople.com but I figured if some people who run the site reach out as well, they might take it more into consideration. It will reach millions of people in the 5 boroughs!!

I have written something to our local newspaper. I am published there a fair bit so coming from me might end up being more well received. I've describe the support networks, nutrition, weight loss, general health etc. As soon as I have finalized it I will send it here first for approval. Probably about a week. I've been very busy lately.

The Cambridge Times, in Canada, Cambridge, ON. I've been published there for community issues, so I'll write it and send it to you first.

Also, I contacted M&M meats who have a huge market in Canada. I have received a thank you but I'll see where I can go from there.

The newspaper will post recipes so that is a great place to start, since you don't have to join to look up a recipe. People will automatically think if I am getting this for free what will it be like if I join. With regards to what I send to the paper I will get your approval first. The last post I put there was non food related but ended up in a revolt. People instead of taking their 20 year old mattress's and non working appliance's were dumping them at the donation sites for diabetes, heart disease etc to avoid taking them to the dump themselves. The donation societies then had to pay to have them dumped. I wrote in explaining this and asking or telling people that the money the organizations is for the betterment of all. There were other responses (all in agreement). The result is that they have removed the sites and call and ask if you have anything for pickup...thereby eliminating the cost of them hauling things to the dump.

The bonus.....along with the above people don't have to pass by these eye sores every day. Mission accomplished.

Hi there,

I would love for the Spark to come alive in my city. I am in Winnipeg Manitoba Canada. Our city has about 700,000 people in it. The Free Press is our major newspaper and we have a Column called Healthy Living where she focuses on diet and exercise.

Her name is Shamona Harnett and her email is:
Shamona.Harnett@freepress.mb.ca

Keep Smiling :)



Lisa

Lila Lazarus from Fox 2 News Detroit (www.myfoxdetroit.com)

She is the local health reporter and is always looking for new methods and information to get people in shape.

After all Michigan has one of the highest numbers of obese people in the Country! Also Detroit has one of the highest numbers of obese people in Michigan!!!

Thanks I hope you pick this one!

What about the Today Show? I just saw a report yesterday on someone who lost a lot of weight on a diet. It wouldn't hurt to ask.

Hi a local radio station here in the DC area might be a great place to spread the Spark. The station is 98.7 WMZQ. The morning DJ's Brian and Jenni are always talking about trying to lose weight. Their phone number is 1-800-505-0098.

my suggestion is not for a "local reporter" but a radio show i listen to on XM Radio every day called "Broadminded" it's a talk show hosted by 3 women, & they are always talking about weightloss.. i think they would love to hear about Sparkpeople, as well as their listeners. Their names are Shari Elliker, Christine Eads & Molly Dedham, the website is broadmindedonline.com
