Maraming nang pagbabago sa Lifestyle Channel na mapapanuod sa Channel 52 ng Skycable Channel.
Bukod sa bagong logo, may ilang shows din na inintroduce ang Lifestyle Network.
Dalawa rito ang The Green Mind, na i-ho-host ng tinaguriang The Mushroom Boy na si Marco Lobregat at Sweet Talk, na i-ho-host ng The Clash: Search for the Next Great Dessert Master winner na si Cynthia Patos.
Nakapanayam ng PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) sina Marco at Cynthia sa press conference na ginanap sa B Hotel, Scout Rallos, Quezon City.
Ayon kay Marco, unang show niya bilang host ang The Green Mind at sobrang excited siya dito.
"Every time we shoot, its always a great feeling for me because it talks about saving the planet, how to live more consciously, how our choices impact on our society and in the environment.”
Ipinaliwanag niya na The Green Mind ang pamagat ng show dahil tungkol ito sa tamang pamumuhay sa pamamagitan ng pagkain ng gulay.
“The Green Mind because it’s all very much green and healthy but you know, for example, when we talk to some people that have gone vegetarian and green, its not necessarily just about their health but the choice of not hurting animals.”
Binisita ni Marco ang iba't ibang pamilihang bayan para ipakita ang mga masustansiyang pagkain na makikita dito.
FARMERS MARKET. Pagpapatuloy ni Marco, “We visited Farmers Market in Cubao in one episode.
"We went there early in the morning. It’s interesting because there’s so many changes that you can find there that we never know.
"I like going to the weekend market, but it's quite different when you go to a market like Farmers Cubao.
"The kind of food they have, the freshness is there. Some of the seafoods are alive.
"You can also talk with actual farmers and interview them.”
NO HAGGLING. Tumatawad ba si Marco kung namimili?
“Ayaw kong tumawad.
"Usually hindi ako tumatawad kasi yun na yung livelihood nila, di ba?
"Minsan siguro, pag namamahalan na talaga ako, that’s the time I ask for discounts,” sagot niya.
Dating model at endorser ng iba't ibang products si Marco. Nag-ge-guest din siya sa shows.
Pero ngayon lang siya mag-ho-host ng sariling TV show at tuwang tuwa siya na natupad ang isa sa kanyang mga pangarap.
"It’s more than I can’t expected. It’s turning out to be really good!”
FIRST-TIMER CYNTHIA. First time din ni Cynthia na mag-host ng TV show kaya't excited siya pag-usapan ang Sweet Talks.
"I will showcase some of new sweets and desserts I discovered.
"I will also give tips on how to bake a perfect cake for your loved ones.
"One of the big challenges for me during the Clash contest was the hosting challenge, because I never got used to it.
"But it’s easy for me to talk while doing something which I love to do.”
DREAM GUEST. Pangarap ni Cynthia na i-guest si Kris Aquino sa kanyang show at magluto kasama ng Queen of All Media.
“It would be awesome to cook with Kris Aquino, because I think she’s very lively and very opinionated.
" I think I can hear from her an honest opinion.
"I think it’s really fun and I will learn a lot from her.
" I think she would be someone who's really fun to bake with.
"Maybe I will be intimidated with her, but it would be exciting.”
Fan din ni Kris ang father ni Cynthia, kaya gusto ng mag-amang makilala nang personal ang seasoned TV host.
