Mobley, who has been called a “Black Dr. Phil who truly empowers viewers” and a “male Oprah” will attract viewers from Family Digest Magazine’s nearly 3 million reader base and from the syndicated Family Digest Reports radio show.
Austin, TX (PRWEB) April 12, 2006 -- Darryl L. Mobley, founder and publisher of Family Digest Magazine, Black America’s #1 family and relationship magazine, has announced the launch of a unique, syndicated “How-To” TV show for families and relationships called The Family Digest Show. The show will be on-air Fall 2006. Mobley says, “There are How-To shows for cooking, painting, and home repair. It’s time for a “How-To” show for what is most precious to us. Our families and relationships.”
The Family Digest Show is a 30-minute, weekly talk show that brings to life the essence of the Black community with a focus on positive strategies, tactics and information that move families and relationships forward. This show is about providing useful, proven solutions to the issues faced by all families, couples, parents and kids. As Darryl says, “If we knew better, we’d do better.” The Family Digest Show empowers viewers.
Darryl interviews -- in-studio and on-location -- celebrities and experts who reveal how they take on and overcome life’s inevitable challenges. The Family Digest Show will tap Family Digest Magazine’s built in base of nearly 3 million readers who enjoy learning how experts and celebrities deal with everyday problems. Darryl’s recent interviewees have included Dr. Dennis Kimbro (author), Les Brown (motivational speaker), Bishop T.D. & Serita Jakes (celebrated minister), Dr. Joyce Morley Ball (relationship expert), Blair & Desi Underwood (actor), Holly Robinson Peete (actress), Sheryl Kurland (marriage expert), Cece Winans (gospel singer), Jerri & Peter Parros (actor), Charlie & Tonja Ward (NBA player), Eartha Kitt (legendary actress), Peabo Bryson (singer), Terry McMillan (author), Sherri Shepherd (actress), Bernie “Mac” (actor), Pat Williams (author and SVP of the Orlando Magic) and Dorothy Height (legendary family proponent).
“The Family Digest Show is a natural next step for Family Digest Magazine and Darryl Mobley,” says Susan Benjamin, President and Editor-in-Chief of Family Digest Magazine and Executive Producer of The Family Digest Show. “When Darryl started Family Digest Magazine eleven years ago, his vision was that he would give his readers information that they did not have so that they could help make their families, “Smarter, Healthier and Happier.” Bringing this message to television allows Darryl to help more people with his open, yet no-nonsense style.” As Darryl has often said, “Fixing our families and relationships and getting them right is the key to fixing much of what is wrong in America today.” And the truth is that no other contemporary person has committed as much effort as Darryl when it comes to enhancing our communities, families and relationships. Darryl Mobley, one of the most respected thoughtleaders in the U.S. believes that, “information empowers and action delivers.”
