Chambana’s own Marie Polk is throwing her hat into the ring to be the next talk-show sensation on Oprah Winfrey’s new television network, OWN.
The contest, which has generated more than 9,000 entries, promises the winner a spot on a new TV network, the latest venture by Winfrey, who is winding down her own famous and long-running Chicago-based “Oprah” show.
“The goal of the show is to enrich the lives of mommies and babies everywhere,” said Polk, a Danville native who has lived in the area all her life. “The show will be informative, educational, and fun. Tune in to see moms from the community supporting one another and sharing in the wonderful experience of motherhood.”
Polk came up with the idea for “C-U Mommy Connection” several months after she found out she was pregnant. Friends she made at a local prenatal yoga class and who she continues to meet with once a week now that all their babies were born helped inspire her to produce the show.
As of this writing, Polk’s “audition” video on the contest website has 72 votes. Go show her some chambanamoms.com love — and maybe when she makes it to the big time, she’ll remember all of us when it’s time to give away a car or a house. It just takes a minute to cast your vote.
Good luck, Marie! Chambana is rooting for you!
