The Frommer’s Travel Show
Saturday 3:00pm – 4:00pm
Pauline Frommer started traveling with her guidebook-writing parents at the age of four months and hasn’t stopped since. Her first job in travel was on the website Frommers.com, and eventually she worked her way up to Editor in Chief. Pauline also served as Travel Editor for MSNBC.com for several years, before working with John Wiley and Sons to create the award-winning Pauline Frommer Guidebooks, a 14-book series that won the coveted “Best Guidebook of the Year” title three years in a row from the North American Travel Journalists Association and once from the Society of American Travel Writers. She is currently co-President of Frommer Media LLC and the Editorial Director for the Frommer’s guidebooks. Her newest book, “Frommer’s EasyGuide to New York City,” has been the best-selling travel guide to the Big Apple for the past three years and is in its third edition.
Frommer’s writings have been widely published in everything from Budget Travel Magazine to Newsweek to Nick, Jr. magazine; she also pens an internationally syndicated newspaper column for King Features.
For four years, Pauline created weekly travel segments for CNN’s Headline News and CNN’s Pipeline. You may also have seen her talking travel on The Today Show, Live with Regis and Kelly, The O’Reilly Factor, NBC Nightly News and ABC World News, Good Morning America, FOX News, and every local news station you can name. On weekends, she hosts a nationally syndicated radio show on travel and this show with the beloved WABC.
Frommer resides in New York City with her husband and two daughters.
