Interview with Donald Faison - Take a #Grillfie!

Grilling Enthusiast and Actor Donald Faison To Help Grillers Turn Up The Flavor and Fun This Summer Recently, the National Pork Board (NPB) discovered that millions of Americans might be missing out on what could be a seriously tasty summer. After ranking all 50 states based on their flavor footprint - the volume of social media food conversations people had about flavor, seasonings and sauces in 2014 - NPB found that many states are in dire need of some flavor-packed inspiration. Together with actor Donald Faison, NPB is "crashing" grills this summer to inspire America to overcome its "flavor shyness" with mouthwatering pork recipes. Star of the hit show "Scrubs" for nine seasons, Faison was never afraid to take comedic risks. In his personal life, he also happens to be a not-so-clueless grilling fanatic and with NPB has been using his famously funny comedic delivery to "crash" cookouts this summer with pork. We talked about: What's happening in his TV and movie careerHis favorite pork recipes and tips he uses to cook for friends and familyWays your can boost the flavor for summer grillingHow he's planning to celebrate Father's Day  Listeners are encouraged to take a "grillfie" - a selfie of themselves with pork on the grill, or just their pork on the grill - and share it socially tagged with #grillpork. For more recipes, grilling tips and grill crashed videos, and to see where your state falls in the flavor rankings, visit

Interview - The Metamorphosis of Mr T

Known for his witty quips and star turns in "The A-Team" and "Rocky III," Mr. T was the cultural touchstone of a generation. Now the former bodyguard and professional wrestler-turned-actor and motivational speaker is taking on a whole new role - one, as his name suggests, he may have been born to play. This June, Mr. T will be the new face of a campaign for Fuze Iced Tea. In the brand's new digital ad titled "Butterflyz," Mr. T drops some of his trademark rhymes and extolls the bold and unique virtues of flavor-charged Fuze Iced Tea while draped in his signature gold chains and newly minted Monarch butterfly wings. In addition to his work promoting tea, Mr. T also is appearing in his latest TV project, "I Pity The Tool" on DIY Network, set to debut later this year. We had such a great time chatting, it was fun, enjoy!

Dot-Com Anniversary Contest and Interview with Bill Rancic #InternetOfficial

It's hard to believe, but .com is all grown up. The domain we all know and love turns 30 this year. With roughly 116.5 million domains ending in ".com" - the most of any domain and more than all of the 25 next largest registries combined - .com's dominance is unquestionable. During the past 30 years, the Amazon isn't just the world's largest river, tweeting isn't just for the birds and "yahoo" means more than impending excitement. To celebrate this monumental milestone of the World Wide Web's most recognized domain-and all the brilliant, online businesses that have flourished because of it-Verisign, the global leader in domain names and internet security, is helping the next generation of entrepreneurs get their business ideas off the ground with a chance to win up to $35,000 by sharing their best and brightest .com name. I had the amazing opportunity to interview Bill Rancic, TV personality, businessman and entrepreneur and the first winner of Donald Trump's show, "The Apprentice". Bill is not only an entrepreneur, he's an accomplished author, speaker, restaurateur, husband and father. We chatted about the anniversary, his role as one of 4 expert judges in the contest, along with some sound advice from this down-to-earth man! Registering a creative, memorable and keyword-rich .com domain name through one of Verisign's registrars and entering it in the #InternetOfficial contest by April 30, 2015 could land a budding entrepreneur $35,000.

Celebrate Valentine's Day Without Leaving The House #vdayin

I had the opportunity to interview Laura Vitale about easy ideas for Valentine's Day when you don't feel like leaving the house! Internet sensation Laura Vitale moved to the United States when she was 12 years old. As a teenager, she developed her love for cooking from her Italian grandmother, learning many of the recipes for classic Italian dishes over the phone. In 2010, Laura began a new phase of her culinary journey when she started her internet cooking series "Laura in the Kitchen." The series quickly became a hit and now boasts an audience of several million, making Laura a well-known name in the cooking community. Laura is the host of 'Simply Laura' on Cooking Channel. There's no better romantic gift than creating a home-cooked meal for your loved-one. And nobody knows that better than Millennials - to them, food is more than just food. Cooking takes on more emotional significance, and it's a way to illustrate feelings for one another.1 Taking a cue from Gen Y, this Valentine's Day, let's ditch stress and crowds, and create home-cooked restaurant-like experiences. From recipe inspiration to tools that make it fast and fun to cook at home, Hunt's Tomatoes and Alexia Foods are making it easier than ever to break the tradition of eating out for special occasions like Valentine's Day.
