Money Pit Media to Host Coast-to-Coast Coverage of National Hardware Show

May 02, 2018

NEW YORK, NY ─ (May 2, 2018): Tom Kraeutler and Leslie Segrete, hosts of the nationally syndicated home improvement show The Money Pit, will be broadcasting on-air and on-line from the all new Ultimate Backyard Area covering the latest in outdoor living, home and hardware products, in partnership with the National Hardware Show.

Beginning with show setup on Monday afternoon, the talented team will be hosting live coverage of the event offering those at home the opportunity to follow the excitement of the show via Facebook Live and other social media platforms, as well as by video, podcast and the national radio show.  Through the expanded coverage, Tom and Leslie will be giving their audience an insider’s view of the trade show and exhibitor’s products while expanding the National Hardware Show’s reach nationally through broadcast, digital and social media.

This is a new model for influencers to engage with audiences most interested in the latest products being rolled out at trade shows. “We're opening the doors of engagement for brands, connecting our fans and followers to their conversations and broadening everyone's reach to talk to DIYers,” said Tom Kraeutler.  “This show will welcome over 2,800 companies—including 500+ first-time exhibitors—all showcasing their latest products for thousands of NHS attendees.  Now, even those that can’t attend can follow the news from their home or office,” he added. 

Tom Kraeutler and Leslie Segrete are industry influencers and long-time advocates of the National Hardware Show.  Their syndicated national radio show is the largest in the nation, reaching 4 million consumers each week across 350 stations, as well as by podcast.  Their audience represents a very active sector of the home improvement marketplace, purchasing products 4 times more frequently than the average consumer for both DIY and direct-it-yourself projects.

“The broadcast from the National Hardware Show is always one of the most popular of the year,” said Leslie Segrete. “Our audience is extremely passionate about home improvement, remodeling and décor and being here gives our audience, as well as the half-million that follow our social media platforms, an insider’s view of the newest products and trends.”
