On Tuesday afternoon, December 19, Prep had a special visit from  Julie Chen, Class of 1987 and CBS television host of the popular programs Big Brother and The Talk. Julie was filming a special personal interview session with NY1 and their weekly program Spotlight NY and she requested that the filming take place at St. Francis Prep. During the session she toured the school's facilities, shared stories about her experiences as a student at Prep, and talked about the path she took to a successful career in the television industry. Julie met with Brother Leonard, Pat McLaughlin and several of her former teachers, as well as  an enthusiastic group of students who asked a number of questions which she answered in a delightful, meaningful way. She also posed for many photos with the students and staff.
Julie was inducted into the Prep's Hall of Fame in 2012. She has been the host of Big Brother since its debut in July 2000 and is the longest-serving host of any version of the show. (The show has aired in several countries.) She is also a co-host and the moderator of the CBS daytime show The Talk.  Previously, she was a co-anchor of The Early Show on CBS.
Everyone at Prep is very grateful that Julie took the time to be with us yesterday. It was an afternoon that everyone--especially the students--will remember for years to come.
On for Ol' St. Francis!
