My blog has opened up a whole new channel of communication between me and my viewers. I'm touched at how open and honest they are being with me, and I, in turn, want to respond to their questions and the stories they are sharing with me in a more personal and direct way.
Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) July 31, 2009
This summer, Dr. Phil has kept viewers and fans current on his thoughts and opinions with his new "Turning Point" blog.
Over the past several weeks, Dr. Phil has blogged and tweeted on numerous topics including farewells to entertainment industry legends, the loss of his father, May-December romances, his family's summer vacation (including tweets from the entire McGraw family), the Erin Andrews controversy and animal abuse. Just as he has ended countless shows by saying, "I want to hear from you," Dr. Phil not only invites feedback on all his postings and other subjects, but also answers selected questions via text or personalized video responses.
"This has been a tremendous experience for me," said Dr. Phil. "My blog has opened up a whole new channel of communication between me and my viewers. I'm touched at how open and honest they are being with me, and I, in turn, want to respond to their questions and the stories they are sharing with me in a more personal and direct way."
While the start of Season 8, on September 14, is still more than a month away, Dr. Phil will continue to blog and tweet as he travels to Australia for the first time next week, making speaking appearances in Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane.
