During his 20 year career as a restaurant critic for the Orlando Sentinel Scott Joseph always tried to keep his appearance under wraps. Now, he’s letting the whole world know what he looks like.
Hal Boedeker of the Sentinel reports that Joseph, 60, will soon be appearing on Orlando ABC affiliate WFTV in a segment called “The Daily Chew,” tentatively set to debut Thursdays at noon. The show centers around Joseph and a local chef who will demonstrate a signature recipe on a kitchen set.
Although Joseph does have some broadcasting experience under his belt, this is his first major foray into TV. After leaving the Sentinel in 2008, he established the Scott Joseph Company, LLC, which includes consulting, restaurant deals that contribute to local charities and a supper club. He also got into radio and continues to contribute to WMFE-FM.
“Through the Friday evening airings on 90.7, I’ve been able to reach a lot of my former readers from my days as the Chow Hound and restaurant critic at the Sentinel,” Joseph told Boedeker. “I’m hoping the Channel 9 spots will reach those who may not listen to public radio.”
