Every week I’m interviewing fascinating people in our community, nation and around the world!

The idea came from a Facebook commenter who saw a video of me and my family floating down the river in Island Park. The person said I should turn the tables and interview my dad (Nate Eaton) – so I did and the rest is history!

Today I’m interviewing Hoda Kotb – one of the most delightful people on the planet. She is the co-anchor of TODAY and the co-Host of TODAY with Hoda & Jenna. Hoda has written five books and has two daughters.

Hoda had a surprise for me about someone I hope to interview someday!

Here are the questions I asked her:

  • You have interviewed a lot of people but who is your dream interview?
  • When did you know you wanted to be a journalist?
  • Can you tell me about your most embarrassing or awkward moment on TV?
  • What do you like best about being a mom?
  • We know you have to get up very early for your job. On the weekends, when you get to sleep in, what do you like to do?
  • What is your favorite junk food?
  • Have you ever been to Idaho and tried our famous potatoes?


  • I hope to visit New York later this summer with my family. What’s one food I have to try?
  • I’m turning 8 in two weeks and want to get my ears pierced. Do you think I should?
  • What advice do you have for me?

You can watch my entire interview with Hoda in the video player above and find here on Twitter here.
