Kimberlie Dykeman Takes a Bite out of NYC

From the minute she landed in New York, Kimberlie Dykeman took in fabulous new experiences every chance she could!  It began with a trip to the General Motors Building to join the crowds at a taping of CBS’s The Early Show…  Dykeman not only shook hands of the fabulously friendly anchors, she also garnered some serious camera-time for the cover of her book, Pure Soapbox, and  handed off a copy to the producer.  Just in case they needed a great guest to motivate their viewers in the New Year!

Dykeman stayed at the swanky SoHo Grande Hotel, dined at Lure and  Megu and took in the amazing contemporary West-Side Story-esque musical, In the Heights, at the Richard Rogers Theater.    A junket into Greenwich Village was distracted by the annual SantaCon celebration, where Dykeman asked not ONE but TWO Santas for a few Christmas gifts!   IMG_0283  IMG_0278 

 

 

 

 And a fabulous meeting with a top executive at the Discovery Network inched the TV Host and producer even closer to that ONE HUGE WISH LIST ITEM …of a talk show on the newly launching Oprah Winfrey Network!  After all Discovery and OWN are officially partners for life, now; and it’s about time Kimberlie Dykeman and the SOAPBOX brand hit the Big Time to motivate the masses!

Kimberlie Dykeman Heads to 2009 ERA Conference in Vegas to Meet One-on-One with TV Executives

KimberlieDykeman- AUTHENTIC1x1_transparentKimberlie Dykeman is killing two birds with one stone next week…hanging out with “infomercial kings” and LA TV Executives in Vegas, baby!  The world-renowned Electronic Retailers Association is holding its 2009 national convention  in Las Vegas, and Dykeman is heading with guns blazing to hob-knob with the most powerful leaders in the direct-to-consumer industry… and win the hearts of the decision-makers of Discovery Channel and a few of Hollywood’s strongest names in TV production.

 Just this week, Dykeman pinged Steve Jones, Show Runner at Original Productions and  Co-developer of Season Two Pitchmen” on the Discovery Channel, about finding a network for her talk show “The Bigger Picture with Kimberlie Dykeman”.    To her surprise, Jones fired back with an invitation to be a VIP guest at the ERA event AND a one-on-one meeting with famed Host/Executive Producer  Anthony “Sully” Sullivan, Thom Beers of Original Productions and Discovery Channel executives.  On top of that, he asked Dykeman, the little infomercial queen, to audition for a co-hosting role on “Pitchmen”.

 Needless to say, Dykeman is on a plane to Vegas to knock it out of the park and create some fabulous memories…after all, IT IS VEGAS, folks!!
