The Mr. Food Test Kitchen Broadcasting Division got its start when it began producing the nationally syndicated Mr. Food television news segment, distributed by CBS Television Distribution to more than 100 network TV stations. After the passing of the brand’s founder, Art Ginsburg, the well-respected segment named Howard Rosenthal as the face of the company.
In 2017, the segment earned the title as the longest running syndicated news insert in television history. Over the years, Mr. Food Test Kitchen has produced over 8000 segments both in-studio and on-location. With a daily viewership of approximately 4.5 million viewers between digital and broadcast distribution, the Test Kitchen is ready to continue this success by reaching for new milestones in the years to come.
