Hi - I'm Brian Balthazar. I'm the Vice President of Programming and Development for Scripps Networks Interactive’s brands HGTV, DIY Network and Great American Country. Among the shows I've developed and ushered on to the airwaves: Flip or Flop, Love it Or List It, and House Hunters. I'm also a TV personality who's a frequent guest on Today and The Wendy Williams Show, among other outlets, commenting on all aspects of pop culture. And I've done all kinds of other things along the way: I helped launch the now-famous fourth hour of the Today Show with Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb. I'm a former co-executive producer of The View. And I've launched three websites, including PopGoesTheWeek.
Some fun facts about me: I was my college mascot, the Syracuse Orange. I touched Donald Trump's hair back in 2003. I flip and renovate homes in my 'spare' time. I ate Thanksgiving and Passover dinner at Joan Rivers' house. I'm a huge dog lover. And I traveled the world with Tom cruise for a week. For real. (I did it for work but it was truly weird)
Now's your chance to ask me anything! Please write your questions in the comments section below and I'll answer the questions live on Friday, September 23rd at Noon ET.
