Professional Santa/Mrs.Claus Team Turned Author/Illustrator Now Have a Weekly TV Show
An award-winning author-illustrator team now have their own weekly TV program, and they are a professional Santa and Mrs. Claus. What's next? How about video books of their Santa's Elf Series children's books!
"I told Joe he could write better than many of the books I had read," says Mary Moore, his wife, illustrator, and publisher of the North Pole Press. Moore has five awards so far for his books demonstrating that his wife was right.
After sixteen published works, and still growing, the couple now star in a weekly TV show and podcast for the Mountain Fun Life Channel. "Every week we introduce the realm of Santa and Mrs. Claus to an ever-expanding group of children and adults across the world," says Santa Joe Moore.
"When the Coronavirus pandemic took hold, I suggested we begin reading children's stories on the internet," said Mary. "Joe suggested we reach out to a friend in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee." That friend was Bob Denney, owner of DDX Media, and the Mountain Fun Life Channel. They passed the suggestion to Denney in an email about doing a weekly show where Santa and Mrs. Claus would read children's books and show interesting fun things and activities for children.
Moore received an email from Bob Denney the next day inviting them to do a pilot show the following Tuesday morning. The Moores had only a few days to put together a half-hour episode and show up at the studio for their first broadcast. Moore says, "It must have been good because we are now a regular show every Tuesday at 10:00 in the morning [EST]."
Bob Denney then asked the Moores to do a weekly podcast following their live broadcast for the station. They agreed, asking that the podcast be more about them and their books. "So now we happily spend the better part of each Tuesday at the studios doing the broadcast and podcast," said Mary Moore. The broadcasts are on Roku, YouTube, and Facebook.
