America's Test Kitchen and Christopher Kimball to Collaborate on ATK Radio Show

BROOKLINE, MA--(Marketwired - Nov 19, 2015) - The Board of Directors of Boston Common Press, the parent company of America's Test Kitchen, today announced that the company is continuing the production of its radio program, with long-time host Christopher Kimball.

Kimball's departure from the company was announced earlier this week, but he will continue to host America's Test Kitchen Radio, which debuted in 2012. The radio show is a weekly public radio broadcast carried by over 300 stations nationwide. It also can be heard as a podcast. He will also continue to host the two television shows, America's Test Kitchen and Cook's Country, for the 2016 seasons.

"I love public radio -- it is the most exciting media platform in the country today. We can say what we like, we can chat with home cooks from around the world, and I have the opportunity to pursue quirky stories from exploding chocolate bars designed as bombs during WWII, the science of junk food, and even how one researcher taught chimpanzees how to cook," said Kimball. "Most of all I love working with my team: Bridget Lancaster as co-host, Adam Gopnik as our resident philosopher, Stephen Meuse on wine, Dan Souza for recipes, Lisa McManus for kitchen tools and gadgets, and Jack Bishop on tastings. They're family." Kimball also noted, "For 2016, we will be creating all-new shows with new recipes, new interviews, new call-ins, and new feature segments."

"Everyone associated with America's Test Kitchen values Chris's expertise and know-how," said David Nussbaum, CEO of Boston Common Press. "We are thrilled that he is continuing his role with ATK radio and we look forward to the upcoming season."

America's Test Kitchen began with a single magazine title, Cook's Illustrated, which debuted in 1992. The America's Test Kitchen television show was launched in 2001, after which the company added Cook's Country magazine, a second television program, an online cooking school, three websites that offer recipes and online video, and a robust cookbook program.
