I’m not really into bragging, but give me a moment. I met Dr. Oz back in March. I was given 15 minutes with him and his wife in a one-on-one, private interview. Our team also secured a private photo shoot to produce five magazine covers.
The article I wrote afterward has received more compliments than anything I’ve ever written in my journalism career. Seriously – strangers email me to tell me how much they liked it, friends and co-workers compliment it, my mom texts me to tell me her coworkers at the library are reading it.
Of course, I’m sure most of the compliments are because the subject is Dr. Oz. People love Dr. Oz, by the way. He just has this insane cool factor, particularly with the upper-middle-aged crowd. The day of our shoot, our photographer went to borrow a stool from a shop in the mall and the store owner begged him to ask Dr. Oz a health question for her. And my grandma – my grandma was over the moon when she found out I was going to meet him.

It’s not because he never takes elevators, or because he always gets a minimum of seven and a half hours of sleep. It’s not because he is in a healthy marriage. Continue reading →
