I have just been busting to tell you guys this for quite some time, but I wanted to make sure details were finalized, and plans were drawn out before I made it public.
It’s official folks! I have business cards, and a keycard to the door! I’m excited. Keep reading to find out why!
Beginning in July (slated for Wednesday, July 14th right now), I will be doing a weekly segment on Rise and Shine Oklahoma on KAUT43, an affiliate of KFOR News. My segment will be featuring restaurant reviews, and maybe even a little of my kitchen Tips & Tricks that you’ve seen on Dishin & Dishes. Here is how it will happen…
Each week, Mr. Wonderful and I will dine out at a great Oklahoma City (or surrounding metro area) restaurant. The night will be filled with photographing the great food we are served, much like I do on my blog posts. We’ll probably talk to the chef and/or owner and maybe even get to visit inside the kitchen to see where all great cuisine begins.
Then I’ll do a live spot with Lance West on Wednesdays and we’ll discuss the restaurant and our experience. Sometimes, the chef or owner will join us, which will be great fun!
There will be a page dedicated to this on the News Station’s website . It’s going to be called…Dishin & Dishes with Katie or something like that! I saw a little bit of the mockup when I visited the station. Past reviews will be archived here and can be watched anytime!
Lance and I will “dish” about the restaurant for a bit, and then people will have the opportunity to go to the page and order a $50 gift certificate to the restaurant we reviewed. But here’s the kicker! You’ll only have to pay $25 for the $50 gift certificate!
My segment is set to air weekly on Wednesdays at 7:15 a.m. (I’ll let you know for sure closer to first air date) so I hope if you live in the Oklahoma City area, you’ll join me for a fun restaurant review each week!
I am so looking forward to how fun this is going to be! Can you imagine? I’m getting paid to eat out at great Oklahoma City restaurants, and then have fun by telling you, the viewers about spots you may not have tried!
I hope you join me in July! It’d be a great thing to do in the morning and I’d sure love having you with me 🙂
