MISSION: The Whitney Reynolds Show is dedicated to provoking positive change through tough topics. Everyone has a story. YOURS MATTERS!
ABOUT: Emmy nominated Whitney Reynolds' news background and passion for people have been combined to create a show that is changing the world of talk TV. She produces a program that is dedicated to being a safe space for delicate life stories. The Whitney Reynolds Show educates, motivates and makes a difference, one topic at a time. What started as an online talk show, the program gained momentum quickly and moved to NBC within its first year. In 2012 the show made strategic changes, which included a move to PBS Stations in Chicagoland, The Quad Cities, Peoria, Champaign-Urbana and Jacksonville, FL. The Whitney Reynolds Show is currently in season nine and recently released its first book, "Beyond The Interview, A 52 Week Guide of Inspiration."
The mission however, doesn’t stop with her program. Whitney also has a segment on iHeart Radio and columns in Chicago Parent Magazine and The Glu. On each of these platforms she is using her voice to create positive change through media.
Originally from Oklahoma, she's learned how to combine southern charm with big city hustle. Her motto is: If the door closes, there's always a window. Whitney graduated from Baylor University in three years and then moved to New York to intern for Good Morning America. Post GMA, she was a morning anchor in both Oklahoma and Texas. She has since planted her roots in Chicago and lives in the Lakeview neighborhood with her husband David and twins.
