The Brooklyn Savvy team is excited to announce that our season 12 premiere will be airing Sunday, May 7th at 10:00 am. We are starting the season off strong with restaurateur and Top Chef finalist Carla Hall, who discusses her personal journey and the importance of soul food with the Savvy panelistas. Also coming up on this season of Brooklyn Savvy are conversations with guests such as Regina Myer, Katy Clarke, and Nadia Lopez.

On May 28th, Regina Myer (@ReginaMyer), who was recently named the President of the Downtown Brooklyn Partnership, will talk about the work that the organization has accomplished and the plans that she has as its new leader. She will also discuss the success she experienced during her time as President of Brooklyn Bridge Park.

Katy Clark (@KatyLClark), the president of Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM), will join the Savvy panelistas on June 25th to discuss how BAM has been affected by the growth of downtown Brooklyn. She also talks about the challenges of running Brooklyn’s signature culture organization.

In a two-part episode airing July 2nd and July 9th, founding principal of Brooklyn’s Mott Hall Bridges Academy Nadia Lopez (@TheLopezEffect) will join the panelistas to discuss her successes. She is also founder and CEO of the Lopez Effect and author of “The Bridge to Brilliance.” She became somewhat of an Internet star when she was featured on the blog Humans of New York (HONY) after one of her students noted her as the most influential person in his life.

We look forward to sharing these episodes, as well as many others featuring more great guests, this season of Brooklyn Savvy.

Brooklyn Savvy airs Sunday at 10:00 am, with encore shows Monday at 7:30 pm and Thursday at 3:00 pm. Also be sure to check out our website for up-to-date Savvy news!
