The Better Show Hosts Nominated For Daytime Emmy Award

NEW YORK, May 7, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --  The Better Show, Meredith Videos Studios' nationally syndicated lifestyle talk show, is pleased to announce that its co-hosts, JD Roberto and Rebecca Budig, have been nominated for a Daytime Emmy® Award in the Outstanding Host in a Lifestyle/Travel Program category. This will be the first Daytime Emmy® Award nomination for The Better Show and Roberto, and the third nomination for Budig, who was previously nominated for her role as Greenlee Smythe on All My Children. The 41 st Daytime Emmy® Awards will be presented on June 22.

Meredith introduces an updated market positioning and logo that reflect the strength of Meredith's national and local consumer media brands as well as its expanded portfolio of marketing solutions.

" The Better Show is a leader in creating engaging and informative content that makes a positive impact on viewers' lives," said Kieran Clarke, Executive Vice President and General Manager of Meredith Video Studios. " Better is the most positive show on daytime television, and it's an honor to be recognized by the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences. This nomination is a testament to our hosts' success."

"The chemistry between JD and Rebecca makes the show fun for the viewers at home and for everyone who steps on our set," said Tracy Langer Chevrier, Vice President and Executive Producer of The Better Show. "They have a warm vibe that makes you want to hang out with them."

Roberto has been a co-host on The Better Show for three seasons . His television career includes roles on Frasier, All My Children, and Family Matters, and as host of the classic game show Shop 'Til You Drop.  He has hosted game and reality shows for ABC, Discovery Channel, Food Network and Animal Planet, as well as guest hosting E! News Live and announcing for The Price is Right with Drew Carey. In addition, he has been a contributing writer for the Los Angeles Times, The Bump, Parents magazine and the Huffington Post.

"It's been a privilege to be part of the amazing growth of The Better Show," said Roberto. "Every day we strive to make the lives of our viewers better and both our audience and our peers in the television community have responded."

Budig joined The Better Show for the seventh season in September 2013. In addition to All My Children, Budig's television credits include guest roles on CSI, Castle, How I Met Your Mother, Out of Practice, Hope & Faith and, most recently, Blue Bloods. She also hosts HGTV's Amazing Water Homes, and has served as a host on WE tv's Full Frontal Fashion and ABC's The View.

"Receiving a Daytime Emmy® Award nomination is such a wonderful way to celebrate my first year on the The Better Show," said Budig. "But this accomplishment is only possible because of the show's talented production team, crew and my fantastic co-host."

Upcoming guests on The Better Show include Martina McBride, Kim Raver from 24: Live Another Day, Josh Turner, Swoosie Kurtz, Eva LaRue and Dolly Parton.
