True Inspiration, Entertainment and Southern Fun Will Make Its Way To Television
“Living Inspired with Karen Shayne” Coming To New Focus Network

Nashville, TN – Real stories and real lifestyle-driven entertainment are coming to New Focus Network as Nashville native Karen Shayne hosts a new daytime show called Living Inspired.

Holding to the host’s namesake, Living Inspired with Karen Shayne will showcase three of daytime television’s most popular topics: talk, how-to, and empowerment. The show offers a variety of segments, from celebrity interviews and pop culture news to health tips, fashion trends, music, and food. In true Shayne style, each episode is capped off real-life version of a Second Act, where real people tell their life-changing stories and inspire us all to overcome life’s challenges. “Living Inspired” is entertaining, empowering, and, above all, motivating. Add some sweet tea and down-home southern fun, and you have all the ingredients needed to cook up one fine “reality” show with a new, refreshingly positive definition of Reality.

About the Host: Karen Shayne is a native North Georgian and a current Nashvillian. While her passion has always been music and the arts, her career has focused on entrepreneurship. But Karen yearned to do more and give more back to her community. So she’s lived “inspired” and done more with her life.

Karen created and launched “Billy’s Wish,” a nonprofit foundation providing emotional support to families dealing with pediatric cancer. A decade later, she created an award-winning healthcare segment, “On Modern Age,” seen each week on Nashville’s NBC and CBS TV affiliates. Karen also founded the Women Survivors Alliance (WSA), a 501c3 non-profit for women affected by cancer. Through the WSA, she serves as Executive Producer of “SURVIVORville” and a nationally touring stage show, “My 2nd Act: Survivor Stories from the Stage” with stops in 11 cities across the country. She also oversees NOU Magazine, an online resource magazine dedicated to women cancer survivors. Through her own experiences she has inspired others to live life fully and selflessly, and through television, she now has the chance to enhance quality of life for a much larger audience, in need of hope, smiles, and faith in tomorrow.

In partnership with New Focus Network, Karen will serve as Executive Producer of the show. The show is directed by Philip Bradley of Artifact Creative.

Living Inspired with Karen Shayne is currently in production and is being filmed before a live studio audience. Air date is set for January, 2016.
