Several weeks ago we got a preview of an upcoming weekly talk show, Frühstück TV, that will be covering a wide variety of German and German-American topics on Sunday mornings. Despite being the largest ethnic group in the United States, German groups and events get little to no coverage in the media, and that is something Frühstück TV is hoping to change.
Viewers can expect to see “experts and celebrity guests, great topics, a good debate, and unpredictable outcomes… but also a weekly look at the Bundesliga, Formula 1 and other German sports, a look at the cultural world, as well as entertainment with a musical guest live on stage.” Did we mention that each broadcast will be coming to you live for free and as an on-demand stream on fruhstuck.tv?
Lars Halter, the host of Frühstück TV, has had years of experience on TV and in the media. You may have seen him reporting live on German TV stations Deutsche Welle and N-TV, or read his articles in Berlin’s Tagesspiegel and German World Magazine. Here at German Pulse, we’ve had the pleasure of working with Lars Halter in promoting various German-American events, including the Steuben Parade in New York. His passion for promoting the German culture is evident, and the amount of time he puts into is rarely seen in the German-American community.
Frühstück TV plans to go live later this year and will be broadcast from the Bierhaus in New York City in front of a live audience. According to Lars Halter, the popular NYC bar was a perfect setting for the weekly show as it resembles the regular get togethers people would have at the local bar to discuss the latest news and events.
Before the show can go live though, Frühstück TV needs your help. There is a substantial cost involved with bringing a live show to audiences every week, so a Kickstarter campaign as been set up to cover some of those initial costs. Other outside backers are also coming in, but this is a great way to show your interest and support in having a weekly show on German topics here in the US.
You can view the preview episode below to get a taste of what the show will cover, and we will continue to bring you updates on Frühstück TV’s progress. Please be sure to check out the Kickstarter page and consider helping out any way you can and visit the show’s official website at fruhstuck.tv.
