(Tallahassee, FL) – Fox affiliate television show ‘Live with Lori, Political Food for Thought’ begins its second season taping in Tallahassee, Florida the week of February 18, 2013. Political influencers who are scheduled to tape this week with host Lori Halbert include Florida Chief Financial Officer Jeff Atwater, Florida Agriculture and Consumer Affairs Commissioner Adam Putnam, Senate President Don Gaetz (R-Destin), State Representative Bryan Nelson (R-Apopka), and State Representative Matt Hudson (R-Naples).
The weekly half hour show, which last year debuted in more than 6 million homes across Florida on the popular Sun Sports Network, a Fox Sports affiliate, was picked up for a second 13-episode season. Host Lori Halbert of Indialantic created the Florida-based program to serve as a cross between a political news show and a traditional cooking show, providing viewers an insider’s look at their elected lawmakers in a casual setting.
“Live with Lori is really about interviewing elected officials in a fun and non-threatening environment so our viewers can get to know them as the ‘people’ they are, not the sound bites in 30 second ads,” Halbert said. “It is a non-partisan show that allows the public to come to their own conclusions about their elected officials, and to have a little fun learning a new recipe, and just maybe come away with a new flavor for politics and policy.”
Live with Lori, Political Food for Thought airs Thursday mornings at 7:00 a.m. EST. Season 2 began February 7th featuring guest State Representative Jason Brodeur (R-Sanford) , with State Representative Gayle Harrell (R-Stuart) appearing on February 14th. State Representative Neil Combee’s (R-Polk City) interview will debut this Thursday, February 21st.

About ‘Live with Lori, Political Food for Thought’
Host Lori Halbert, herself a former Indialantic town council member whose first venture into state politics was a bid for Florida House in 2010, has brilliantly mixed her two passions in what viewers and lawmakers are calling “a surprising, yet savory way.” Halbert’s goal is to make public policy a little more palatable to Floridians across the state and across partisan lines.
Season 1 highlighted over a dozen political influencers and policy makers at the state and federal level. Season 2 promises more of the same with cabinet and legislative leaders discussing issues impacting Floridians.
