VH1's Huge On The Tube!

Some awesome press from our 12-episode series #HOTT!

“For some YouTubers, a single video was all it took to catapult them to stardom. A new digital series from VH1 and What's Trending aims to capture the stories of creators and what made them Huge on the Tube…The series will dig deeper into the success of various YouTube celebrities, similar to VH1's Behind The Music franchise. The first episode features singer and dancer Todrick Hall, who explains the origin of his breakthrough Cinderonce video.” – The Daily Dot

“”We can go back into the 10 years of YouTube, where there’s a ton more videos, a ton more creators, and there are constantly new people popping up. It’s an endless universe of creators and content, so I’m excited for the possibilities. This is just the tip of the iceberg. I hope it becomes an archive like many of their series that cover different artists and videos over the years.”” – StreamDaily

““It was important to not touch on one-off successes, but on people who had used viral video to build a community around their work,” Lazar told Cynopsis. “A lot of these videos were pivotal in launching these individuals into the public eye.”” – Cynopsis Digital Newsletter

“What’s Trending is once again using a media partnership to shine a spotlight on top YouTubers. Shira Lazar‘s channel has teamed up with VH1 for Huge on the Tube, a web series that explains the secrets behind the successes of 12 YouTube stars.” – Tubefilter

“VH1 is teaming up with a YouTube expert to learn more about how online video superstars are made. The network known for its music and pop culture acumen is teaming up with Shira Lazar’s What’s Trending for two new shows that will explore the world of viral fame and YouTube stars. It’s territory that Lazar and her team already know well from years producing their acclaimed online show.” – New Media Rockstars

Inside Quest - Becoming Your Own Boss

I love meeting entrepreneurs- those with vision and the balls to see it through- through the good times and the bad (and let me tell you it's bumpy road). But beyond the bumps and grinds, I continue to feel grateful and empowered. Every day I learn... A LOT! Recently, I had the opportunity to be on Quest co-founder Tom Bilyeu's "Inside Quest" series whose motto is something I definitely resonate with- "Find your Passion. Evolve your Mindset."

I talk about everything from life/work lessons I've learned to my daily morning affirmation ritual. Enjoy and tweet me @ShiraLazar to let me know what you think:
