Really Famous with Kara Mayer Robinson

Jan 7, 2020

I’m kicking off 2020 with a guest who inspires me – and I think will inspire you. I love her perspective, approach to life, insight and authenticity.

Daisy is the host of a new TV show on NBC called A New Leaf, sponsored by with executive producer Robin Samuels.

Back in the day, Daisy was a hugely popular MTV VJ. Ever since, she's been all over television. She was the host of House of Style, America’s Funniest Home Videos, Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve, her own CNBC talk show called Daisy ... I can go on and on.

Daisy has had an extraordinary life trajectory. She started as a model, accidentally scored a last-minute gig presenting the weather on Telemundo, and pretty much everything blew up from there. We talk about all that, and more.
