Ben Lyons -- Triple Threat TV Host?

It was just announced that 26 year old Ben Lyons (son of film critic Jeffrey Lyons) is now due to host a THIRD show.  He’s already an entertainment…

correspondent on the E! Network, is due to pretend to be a film critic on the new season of the syndicated movie review show, “At The Movies”, and is now also the host of Nickelodeon’s “My Family’s Got GUTS”.

In an article in The NY Daily News, Ben Lyons talks about interviewing children on the show.  His comments are well worth noting in regards to what’s important when on television.

“The kids aren’t trained to talk in sound bites, and they sometimes freeze up on the cameras a little bit, but they don’t mind if you ask them personal questions.”

To my surprise, Ben Lyons’ TV ascension has been questioned (white privilege is for the most part, NEVER questioned.)  but his quote here is very helpful and useful.  I initially came across Ben Lyons when he appeared as a correspondent on his dad’s TV show, “Reel Talk”.
