I am so excited about getting back into The Asheville View. Last season was an amazing experience, and I am looking forward to all the ways I’ll be stretched as a writer, producer, and woman. I’ve said it before; this project is hard but fair. There have already been some big behind the scenes changes like new web design, hosts actually have manuals this season, and we even changed the way we record the show. I believe the changes made will cut costs, grow our audience, and help our show reach more people.
New Set Locations
Last season, I felt like we told a lot of stories that hadn’t been told. This season we intend to do more of that, but we really want to show our audience more of Asheville as well. Therefore, most segments will take place in and around Asheville. You can catch Kirby at restaurants cooking with fabulous local chefs or Eboné chatting it up in spaces like the Mountain Xpress Candidate Forum.
We’ve Added a Host
Secondly, we are adding a new host: Tina White. I am so excited about getting to work with Tina. You may remember her from our special feature Pride & True. Tina has a big heart, she is hilarious, and she happens to be transgender. Adding a new host is always exciting, but Tina is going to add a whole new dynamic to our team. I can’t wait for you all to meet her!
More Community Engagement
Finally, we’ve decided to do fewer live shows, but more interactive events. We will have a live show in April, and details should be coming soon. We want to spend season 2 getting to know our fans better. We are extremely excited about it, but we are also excited about the launch party, meet-ups, and lunch and learning we have planned.
The truth is that even with all these changes, the best is yet to come. Each new guest, trending topic, and interview help make our entire crew better. We are all growing with the show, and season 2 will be no different.
