EmpowHER to Produce Star-Studded Live Health and Wellness TV Program at The Women's Conference

Leading Women's Health Media Company to Showcase Compelling Content Featuring the Hottest Women's Health and Wellness Topics

SCOTTSDALE, AZ--(Marketwire - October 13, 2010) - EmpowHER, a Top 5 women's health and wellness site, today announced plans to produce unique, live television programming featuring some of the nation's leading women's health care experts and real women who will be sharing their personal health and wellness stories with the viewing audience. The show -- "EmpowHER LIVE" -- will be hosted during The Women's Conference 2010, the nation's premier forum for women, in Long Beach, CA, from October 24-26.

"Our participation in The Women's Conference was designed to showcase what makes EmpowHER unique among women's health media companies," said Thom Brodeur, Chief Marketing Officer for EmpowHER. "The Women's Conference attendees are educated, sophisticated and influential consumers. As such, they demand more than a visit to a booth and product samples. We felt it was important to create the same in-person environment these women can experience on where women can ASK a health question, SHARE their health story, or CONNECT with women just like themselves."

"EmpowHER LIVE" will be taped at EmpowHER's booth (#641) in the exhibit hall at the Long Beach Convention Center. The Show will feature 10 separate 30-minute segments covering various women's health and wellness topics including: Menopause & Hormone Health, Healthy Aging, Weight Management, Sexual Health and Heart Health. The Show expects to reach more than 30,000 Conference attendees during the event, and will be syndicated to millions of women on and through the EmpowHER Network after the event and through the end of the year.

Co-hosted by EmpowHER Founder, Chairperson and CEO and renowned women's health advocate and media personality Michelle King Robson and lauded health care industry executive and Fox News Health Correspondent Dr. Archelle Georgiou; EmpowHER LIVE will showcase a slate of some of the nation's leading health care providers and their patients. Rounding out the all-star roster of hosting talent is critically-acclaimed actress, activist and businesswoman Catherine Bach of "Dukes of Hazzard," who will serve as EmpowHER LIVE's special correspondent, handling VIP and celebrity interviews for the Show.

"'EmpowHER LIVE' promises a powerful combination of gold-standard hosting talent, world-class medical experts, and women from all walks of life sharing their gripping and heartfelt personal health stories and journeys to wellness," said Shay Pausa, Executive Producer of EmpowHER LIVE. "Aligned with EmpowHER's mission, the Show is meant to engage Conference attendees and the health and wellness brands that serve them in improving women's health and changing their lives."
