Local Vancouverites Anna and Kristina of the popular Grocery Bag show were picked up by Oprah’s upcoming OWN channel a couple weeks ago. While most of the shows on OWN are produced by Oprah, this is one of the very few announced which isn’t.
Oprah has voiced her frustration on the lack of quality programming on television today. That was one of the reasons for her starting her own network.
She is focusing on the utmost in quality programming to be delivered through OWN. Her lineup consists of superstars Lisa Ling, Dr. Oz, Dr. Phil, Suze Orman, and many more.
Anna and Kristina’s Grocery Bag focuses on reviewing cookbooks by testing to see if they actually produce the quality tasting food they claim and if they are practical for the everyday home cook. Tips on cooking, purchasing appliances, ingredients, and much more are also offered. Everything is Vancouver-based, including the guest chefs.
OWN launches March 1, 2011 in Canada on Shaw Vancouver channel 96.
Congratulations to Anna and Kristina!
