I am excited to announce that Boone's Hooks will be featured in a piece on the TODAY show tomorrow, Thursday, June 25th! Here is the information that I received...
Thanks so much for speaking with me just now about the the leaf towel bar and ring to showcase on The Today Show!
I work for LXTV, which produces a real estate / home design show called Open House, which airs on NBC stations across the country. You can see clips of the show on our website: http://lxtv.com/openhouse/.
Our home improvement host, George Oliphant, is scheduled to be on Today, Thursday June 25th in the 8 AM hour, showcasing some great DIY weekend projects to upgrade your bathroom, and we would love to include the bar and ring! The segment is scheduled to air on Thursday LIVE during the 8 AM hour, EST. It would be the 2nd hour of the Today Show (I’m not sure what time that airs in Colorado), barring any breaking news...
