Alton Brown is Having the BEST WEEK EVER!
Friday, July 28, 2006 | posted by Mike
OK, maybe that’s overstating things a bit.
But his publicists are certainly earning their salaries.
In anticipation of this weekend’s premier of “Feasting on Asphalt,” Alton is appearing in a number of articles and interviews, including TV Guide and The New York Times.
But not all of the media coverage is simply about AB. Some of it is by him, as well. Brown wrote an essay and is featured on the cover of the latest Guideposts magazine. The publication, which is brought to you by the “Power of Positive Thinking” folks, features Alton’s thoughts on his upbringing in California and Georgia, his experiences on the road and how he made the leap from behind-the-camera cinematographer to multi-tasking star of numerous Food Network shows.
Since Guideposts is all about “True Stories of Hope and Inspiration,” the article provides the kind of inspiring story that you would expect. It seems like every time you read something about him, Alton Brown becomes more likeable. In fact, in an arena where personalities (Rachael and Bobby) inspire love and loathing, does anyone not like Alton Brown?
Brown’s story is an inspiring one, and the way he made the leap to stardom by committing to his vision is a topic I’ll be writing on a little later today.
