NEW YORK, May 13, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Meredith Vieira's life behind the camera has been as full of success and challenges as her career. Vieira explores it all in this exciting new collaboration that leverages the reach and prestige of both her YouTube channel, LIVES, and Everyday Health, a leading digital health and wellness company.
Through in-depth custom video content and blogs, Meredith will dig into the topics that matter most deeply to her, from stress management and healthy eating, to caring for a loved one with a chronic condition or dealing with a serious diagnosis.
Special segments will focus on Meredith's own personal health and wellness experiences, as when she reveals her lifelong battle with body image, or shares her ongoing support for her husband of 28 years, Richard Cohen, a cancer survivor who is currently managing multiple sclerosis. Other segments will feature in-depth interviews with medical experts and real-life patient discourse on medical conditions such as Hepatitis C, breast cancer and osteoporosis.
All Everyday Health/Meredith Vieira content will be produced in collaboration with LIVES with Meredith Vieira, a premium digital YouTube channel dedicated to bringing people together to share their personal stories and learn from each other.
"When we started LIVES, the goal was to create high-quality, distinctive video —digital content that would engage viewers on the topics that matter most to them, and help to drive the conversation onward and outward," said Vieira. "Everyday Health's audience reach and the trust and credibility of their brand make them a perfect partner."
"We are excited to welcome Meredith Vieira to the Everyday Health team," explained Ben Wolin, CEO, Everyday Health. "Meredith is a superb journalist who is also a parent, role model and caregiver in her own life – which makes her passion for health and wellness so inspiring and valuable to our audience."
