George Noory Wants to Lose 15 Million Pounds
LOS ANGELES, July 5, 2012 -- George Noory, host of the most-listened-to overnight radio program in North America, is challenging his audience to "shape up" and lose 15 million pounds. With more than one third of U.S. adults considered obese*, Noory announced today that he will dedicate the first hour of his program each Thursday in July to encouraging his millions of late-night listeners to improve their health, shed excess pounds and help fight weight-related diseases. As part of the effort, he'll welcome special guests to give advice on nutrition, weight loss, health benefits and much more.
Noory stated, "Listeners of Coast to Coast know that in addition to exploring the mysteries of the universe, I'm also interested in improving my health and wellness. This Shape Up campaign is a great opportunity for America to encourage and inspire each other to increase our longevity and live better lives."
Coast to Coast AM will feature the Shape Up campaign each Thursday from 10 to 11 p.m. PT/1 to 2 a.m. ET. Listeners can also visit http://www.coasttocoastam.com/ to find weight-loss trackers to measure progress, as well as tips to improve their health.
