By Irish America Staff
December / January 2002
Award-winning host for Ireland’s best Anchor of a News Magazine Show, Siobhan Cleary is bringing Health Diary to U.S. audiences this fall. Airing on the New York area’s channel WLIW, Health Diary, motivates people to get in shape with tips, exercises and discussions. It’s “Get In Shape” segment tracks four non-exercisers in their struggle to get fit.
The Gracie Award-winner for Best Reality Show inspires and also tackles other weighty issues too: such as a boy with cerebral palsy who relies on a deadly poison to help him walk, and a hijacked boat captain who battles to recover from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.
Prior to her move to the U.S., Cleary spent eight years as a host of Check Up, a top-rated medical program in Ireland. ♦
