The District Dish, the hip, internet and cable TV talk show that leaves public access in the ashes, celebrated it’s 1-Year Anniversary last night at Public Bar in Dupont Circle with it’s first ever live taping. Each installment of The Dish is taped at a different restaurant or bar around town. At the helm of it all is Kate Michael – writer, model, and Miss DC (2006) – she’s the driving force behind the popular website KStreetKate, and the go-to gal for insider info on all things stylish in DC. Along with co-hosts Sonya Gavankar, a former Miss DC herself, and men’s fashion designer Ebong Eka, their personalities combine to create a unique, tag team-style, brand of lifestyle coverage, a natural extension of Michael’s blog.
On air guests Sophie Pyle of “Blond Charity Mafia,” Matt Paxton from A & E’s “Hoarders,” and The Dreamscapes Project frontman Keith Center, each taped their own 8-minute segment which will run sometime in the near future. (I was told that ratings spike when a musical personality is interviewed.)
Guests were treated to complimentary hor d’oeuvres, a cash bar, and also had an opportunity to mingle with fans and past show guests. Look for new episodes of The Dish every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday!!
The District Dish is a lifestyle talk show on local topics that airs on Comcast stations around the greater Washington area, on CurrentTV, and publishes three times weekly via the internet on www.thedistrictdish.com
