We’re honored to be included in Skift’s list of Most Influential People in Travel in 2013!
Lydia Tenaglia, founder of Zero Point Zero
With Anthony Bourdain as the face man, Tenaglia and production company Zero Point Zero started No Reservations on the Travel Channel in 2004. In the place of vanilla hosts promoting a cruise ship or a hotel that’s given them a freebie, ZPZ’s hosts dig deeper into how people live, eat, and even hunt. As Tenaglia told Skift this summer, “There have been shows that have been made by tourism boards and they look like bad travelogues.” Bourdain and ZPZ moved from Travel Channel to CNN in 2012 for Parts Unknown, and won an Emmy this year. Beyond Bourdain, ZPZ has shows on the Sportsman Channel, The Weather Channel, Speed, the Travel Channel, Food Network, and PBS.
