OPRAH WINFREY began a contest last year called Your OWN Show: Oprah’s Search for the Next TV Star to run on her new OWN network. Talk show hopefuls were asked to submit a video on why they should be selected to host their own show.
The lucky winner, chosen by Oprah, is 26-year-old Zach Anner, who lives in Austin Texas. He is a comedian and writer with Cerebral Palsy. On a recent interview, Anner said although he is in a wheelchair, his family always encouraged him to take advantage of all life has to offer, so he never let it slow him down. He wanted to share with the world his adventures on a travel show and submitted a compeling video with a clip of his idea. He is an inspiration and will show others how to enjoy each day, even if obstacles are in their way.
Anners’ new travel show, “Rollin’ around the World with Zach Anner,” will debut on OWN this summer. He shared very good advice during his interview; “I would say to anybody who feels bogged down by their obstacles. Imagine who you are without those and imagine yourself doing what you love to do. Because that will drive you to do things you never thought you were capable of doing”.
The talk show will be produced by Mark Burnett, who has the “midas touch”. Several of his other hit shows include, ‘Survivor’, ‘The Apprentice’, ‘Are You Smarter Than A 5th Grader’, and ‘Shark Tank’.
Let’s hope Zach has a successful run on OWN T.V., and continues to inspire others.
