Emmy-nominated TV personality Laura McKenzie Stanton shares stories from her Travel Show and the upcoming Hollywood Christmas Parade airing on Friday 12/15/23
DALLAS, TX, UNITED STATES, December 14, 2023 /EINPresswire.com/ — Writer, producer, and Emmy-nominated TV personality Laura McKenzie Stanton took viewers behind the scenes of her award-winning show Laura McKenzie’s Traveler, and how it’s evolved her passion for giving back, in a recent episode of Weed And Whiskey News.
A multi-hyphenate of Hollywood—reporter, writer, executive producer, and serial television host—McKenzie got her first taste of life on the road as a singer in an internationally touring band. While she continues to feed her musical side with events like David Fishof’s Rock and Roll Fantasy Camp, she explored unknown territory earlier this fall at the inaugural Comedy Fantasy Camp, Fishof’s latest weekend workshop for aspiring entertainers.
It was here that she connected with W&W News host, Jerry “J-Man” Joyner.
“My plan was to attend as a writer [to] listen to the lectures and seminars, and get ideas for marketing,” said McKenzie, who did perform a stand-up comedy bit on the last day of camp. “It was challenging, but in retrospect, I’m glad I did it!”
With nearly 200 episodes of Traveler under her belt, McKenzie shared how the show has begun to integrate modern technologies like drone cameras and AI into its production. She also discussed how its focus on “volun-tourism” led her to larger philanthropic endeavors, like the Hollywood Christmas Parade benefitting Marine Toys For Tots.
Co-hosted by Laura McKenzie Stanton along with Erik Estrada, Dean Cain, and Montel Williams, the 91st annual Hollywood Christmas Parade airs Friday, Dec. 15 at 8 p.m. PST on The CW Network, and will be available to stream Dec. 16.
Watch and listen to McKenzie’s interview on Weed And Whiskey TV, as well as YouTube, Spotify, and Roku.
