Last week, I was fortunate enough to host the official media launch lunch (tongue twister right there) of the History Channel’s newest baby: HIDDEN CITIES EXTREME. I had a good chat with Simon, the show’s witty and candid host, and I’m convinced he’s a perfect fit for the show. Hidden Cities Extreme premieres on October 29 at 930PM so be sure you’re glued to your TV Sets by then!
