“No Sugar Philly Teens Talk” will launch it’s new innovative talk show for local teens on Feb. 21, at The Philadelphian, 2401 Pennsylvania Ave, 7PM. “No Sugar” will be used as a platform to bring informative, inspirational, and motivational discussions, news, and topics that teens face daily.
The host Nicole Eckstine, who is no stranger to working with teens, recently produced “The living dream” a theatrical play tailored towards teens. Eckstine hopes not only a dream or a play but a Talk show can change the lives of underprivileged youth in Philly.
The audience will have the opportunity to interact with the host and other guest by asking questions unique to their own situations.
The executive producer, Nicole Eckstine, promises to keep it real by not only entertaining, but also stimulating and educating viewers with real life topics in a fun and interesting way. In addition to in studio taping, the show will travel to inner city high schools, malls, and teens hang out spots to broadcast live.
“No Sugar” will provide its viewers, staff and guest with a fun, loving and non- judgmental environment. This show will be like no other; No Sugar has a strong concentration on developing social skills and introducing various methods of conflict resolution. It will consist of teen writers, teen panelist, teen dancers, teen mobile DJ. and a adult personality (celebrity, politician, successful entrepreneur etc.). It is the producers belief that we all can benefit and offer valuable insights into the lives of our young adults, while also helping them to find solutions to their problems.
Nicole Eckstine is a humanitarian who came up with a way to bridge the gap between our teens and our community. She has created a niche with “No Sugar” that does just that. Her vision for the show was birthed out of compassion for our teens that are to often rejected, misunderstood, and not given the support they need to thrive and survive in today’s society. No Sugar is a solution which can be a great deterrent to the growing problems facing our teens i.e. teen suicide, cyber bullying, rebellion against parents and authority, self hatred, and other negative outbreaks currently within society that directly impact our teens.
Nicole says “THEY NEED A VOICE. ” No Sugar means keeping it real!! She is encouraging teens on the show to be open when discussing topics- from sex violence to success- in a raw context that promotes self- confidence, self-awareness, and understanding of self and others too. Her goal for the show is to begin to grow beyond some of the issues that our teens face in hopes that these issues will not filter into their adult life and become significant problems, to inspire our un-inspired youth, and in return for them to receive the recognition they deserve.
