CLARENCE, NY (passionateliving.com) “Passionate Living,” the lifestyle program produced and hosted by Catherine “Cat” Miller that features inspirational guests, messages of hope, and segments from locations around the world, is the recipient of two national 2022 Telly Awards. The program is a Silver Winner in the General Motivational category, and a Bronze Winner in the General Entertainment category. “Passionate Living” was recognized alongside other winners like PBS and The Walt Disney Company.
Based in Buffalo, New York, “Passionate Living” has been on the air on WBBZ-TV, Your Hometown MeTV Station, and online at www.passionateliving.com, since June of 2020. Launched during the height of the Covid pandemic to offer healing during troubled times, “Passionate Living” was made to inspire people to fall in love with their own lives. The “Passionate Living” brand originated twenty years, starting when Catherine published the Holistic Health Journal, an internationally acclaimed magazine. During the pandemic, Catherine relaunched the show to inspire viewers by highlighting people living their passions and using them to make a difference in the world. The program currently airs Tuesday & Thursday at 8 PM, and Sunday at 11 AM.
Co-host and niece Rozina Miller joins Cat Miller on many episodes. The production and video team includes videographer/editor Rifat Chowdhury; Associate Producers Sophie Mielnicki and Rozina Miller; and videographer Tim Marcolini.
Catherine Miller explains, “It is my mission to support you to unlock your innermost passions, to muster up the courage to take risks that involve living a more fulfilling life, and to assist in guiding you to your true life’s path. Excitement and inspiration are the keys to stepping onto the path, as then we can be whisked away by our purpose for being alive, whatever that may be! Please share your stories with us so that we might share them with viewers who need an extra bit of inspiration.”
The Telly Awards was founded in 1979 to honor excellence in local, regional, and cable television commercials with non-broadcast video and television programming added soon after. With the recent evolution and rise of digital video (web series, VR, 360, and beyond), the Telly Awards today also reflects and celebrates this exciting new era of the moving image on and offline.
