Andrew Zimmern is an award-winning TV personality, chef and food writer, and is known to be one of the most versatile and knowledgeable personalities in the food world. He is the creator, host and co-executive producer of Travel Channel's hit series, Bizarre Foods with Andrew Zimmern. In the series, Zimmern travels the globe in search of strange and unusual edible delicacies. He focuses on foods that would, in one country, be considered common cuisine, but may be an exotic edible in another. He usually shows how the food is made, where it is served, and then presumes to try the dish. From world class restaurants to food trucks, Zimmern believes that sharing food is the best way to learn about cultures, and his doing so definitely educates viewers on other cultures’ traditions and ways of life.

About Voice America Kids Radio Network:
In August of 2010 Perry Damone Founder and Chairman of the KidStar Radio Network met an incredible gentleman with an extraordinary vision by the name of Jeff Spenard. Mr. Spenard is the President of World Talk Radio LLC / Voice America. Perry Damone and Jeff Spenard sat down to discuss a new channel that Voice America was thinking of launching; Voice America Kids. This was the beginning of a collaborative effort between World Talk Radio/ Voice America and KDSTR Radio Corp. The KidStar team consulted with Jeff Spenard and his unbelievably talented staff for several months to create and launch the VAK network with a short term goal of twenty Voice America Kids network shows to expand to one hundred shows in the next twenty four months. We have now met that short term goal of 31 all kid run network shows covering topics from sports, to politics, to school issues, to fashion, travel and even a show that is hosted by two twelve year olds called “Life At Twelve” which started as “Life At Ten.” Currently we have shows that are focused on communities and critical issues that face our youth today such as “Purple Songs Can Fly” which originates from Texas Children’s Hospital in Houston hosted by kids going through life challenging treatments. VAK also collaborates with the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children offering a 24/7 on air beacon that looks for missing kids across the country and around the world. “Our Future is Missing, Voice America Kids” is hosted by kids looking for missing kids; to date and as of this writing, “Our Future Is Missing Voice America Kids” alongside incredible nationwide efforts, there have been 14 kids recovered which have been on the VAK airwaves.
