On Monday, national TV journalist, on-air personality, and producer Jennifer Eckhart returned to media with the launch of her new podcast, ‘REINVENTED with Jen Eckhart’, a podcast series focused on sharing awe-inspiring stories and tales of reinvention from some of the world’s brightest and most thought-provoking public figures who overcame incredible obstacles on the path to success.
In this new podcast series, Eckhart, 31, interviews public figures, celebrities, CEOs, athletes, business leaders, and disruptors from all works of life who share one thing in common: they threw out “The Rule Book.” Some achieved success with ease from the start, while others overcame incredible obstacles, oftentimes taking many career detours in life, while navigating uncharted territory.
Eckhart is a former producer at Fox Business Network, who left the network in June 2020, accusing ex-Fox News anchor Ed Henry of raping her in her ongoing litigation against the network and the former White House correspondent. “My leaving Fox has given me a unique opportunity to transition to do something unique and interesting — the ‘Reinvention’ podcast,” she told Variety.
“Reinventing oneself, whether personally or professionally, is something so many of us can relate to, Eckhart told True Hollywood Talk. “Whether you’re ringing the bell at the New York Stock Exchange, or the ‘cancer-free’ bell, my hope is that this show will inspire anyone who wants to reinvent themselves, to take that first step. It is never too late in life to adjust your sails to reach your destination.”
The trailer for the new podcast series is now available, with the first episode to debut on August 23 with dancehall artist Sean Paul.
Upcoming guests on Eckhart’s show include, but are not limited to former supermodel-turned millionaire-business mogul Kathy Ireland, rapper and fitness coach Zuby, best-selling author and addiction recovery advocate Brian Cuban, television host and mental health advocate Melissa Rivers, and journalist, whistleblower, and co-founder of LifeOurVoices.org Gretchen Carlson.
“People often say you don’t need to reinvent the wheel, but I’ve found that reinvention is the key to living a truly authentic and fulfilling life,” Eckhart told True Hollywood Talk. “After listening to these remarkable stories and laugh-out-loud conversations, our audience will walk away from each episode with invaluable advice that can help them navigate their own personal journeys of self-discovery and reinvention.”
