    Brian Boitano

    Brian Boitano updates

    (1) I am excited to announce that "The Brian Boitano Project" will be premiering on HGTV....January 16th! More details soon!
    It follows the process of a 200-year-old house in Italy that I renovated. My great-grandfather once lived in it!

    Watch for me on The Today Show....this Friday around 8:50am!
    1:38 PM - 27 Nov 13
    https://twitter.com/BrianBoitano/sta...12791321186304

    The reason for tomorrow's Today show appearance is to promote the Disson holiday show airing on Sunday.

    Boitano gave an interview this week on a local tv newscast in NYC, the hook for which was a different Disson show -- the one that is a tribute to past Olympians and a send-off to the Sochi hopefuls. (The live Disson event is in two weeks in NJ; the broadcast is in Feb.)
    The local interview made no mention of the new HGTV show, although Boitano was able to talk about his cooking ventures.

    I must say that I admire Boitano for always coming across as sincere, affable, and interesting. He manages to promote his brand effectively in a natural way, IMHO -- nothing heavy-handed or obnoxious about him.

    I agree. Brian is just a standup guy! He's never let his successes on the ice go to his head. I've watched his cooking show and find him entertaining, skillful, and fun to watch. I also have his cookbook which has little vignettes about his life. He truly is a gentleman and a professional. Glad to see his show is coming back on HGTV.

    Boitano's upcoming HGTV series is a new one that is not related to cooking -- as explained above in his Facebook post.

    Boitano is a great guy and good friend. I covered most of his career and spoke to him at a Disson show last year just as he was finishing his cookbook. He was kind enough to send me a copy. Look forward to watching his new HGTV show.

    Turned on the TV and there was Brian. Nice segment on the Today Show. I caught it just in time to record it. Now I will put it with the skating on Sunday for a complete package.

    I'm glad to hear that he truly is the good guy he seems to be from a distance.

    Brian Boitano

    In honor of Boitano's selection for the official U.S. delegation to the Sochi Olympic games, I think a big Brian love-in is in order. I'll start the ball rolling…

    you just wanted to post a video of Michelle

    This program is one of my favorites of his - http://youtu.be/9QoS4vYZp10

    Loved this patriotic program for the 1961 Tribute show in October of 2001, which became a Sept 11 tribute show - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1qrn7LYRKbE

    And don't forget his skating on an Alaskan "Glacier" (looks to me more like a glacier fed lake) - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MleTnhI-lOw

    I felt it was time that Brian had his own Fan Fest thread!

    Still performing at 50

    And his 1988 programs are some of my fondest skating memories, too.

    Yay, Brian! Class, eloquence and a darn terrific skater! He will be a superb rep for the U.S. in Sochi!
