Bravo Honors Florine Mark
Detroit icon and Weight Watchers CEO Florine Mark rose up from humble beginnings on Detroit’s west side to become one of the nation’s most prominent business leaders and motivational figures. As the CEO of Weight Watchers – who once struggled with extra pounds herself – Florine used her personal experience to become a successful entrepreneur and a leading national voice on health and weight loss.
Recognizing her significant contributions and positive financial impact on our region, Florine Mark became Detroit Public TV’s first Bravo! honoree. The distinction is given in the spirit of DPTV’s Society for Excellence supporters, whose gifts of $1,000 or more, ensure ongoing efforts to provide quality educational programming to our 2 million weekly viewers.
Bravo! is our annual celebration to say, “Thank you,” to these leaders and DPTV ambassadors who encourage others to join this effort of utilizing the power of public media to provide knowledge and understanding for our community.
The 60-minute Bravo! Florine Mark broadcast event premiered during Bravo! 2017 with a live broadcast, livestream and on-air pledge at DPTV studios accompanied by a VIP Studio Experience.
