The early days:
Regina’s media career began as a ski reporter while living at Lake Tahoe for NBC affiliate KCRA-TV in Sacramento, California, the nation’s first television and radio ski report from an independent roving reporter. Her first studio reporting job was in Sacramento and here she is on her first ever show.
Catching the eye of senior management, she was quickly offered a position as one of the first women to enter the world of television sports broadcasting on NBC and riding the wave of women on the sports desk, she was hired to co-anchor weekly football coverage in New York at NBC with Bryant Gumble. She commuted weekly from her home on the shores of Lake Tahoe to “30 Rock” (NBC’s studios at Rockerfeller Center) and worked on the weekend show.
Sacramento: KTXL, KXTV & KVIE
Taking a break to begin a family, Regina re-emerged in the media as a news anchor at KTXL-TV News in Sacramento. Dissatisfied with serving up bad news for dinner, Regina made the decision to take her career in the direction of more avante-garde programming
Choosing to raise her son near family, Sacramento became the home base of her production company LuminArt Productions where her first project educated the public on more environmental options in the home in a news feature titled ‘The Envireport’, which aired on the nightly news at KXTV-TV in Sacramento.
These short features on the environment were followed by a full length documentary titled “Sierra in Peril” for PBS affiliate KVIE-TV.
Regina produced and wrote this critically acclaimed documentary, which aired nationally and won several awards including 4 Emmy nominations and a win.
PBS: Regina’s Vegetarian Table
As a result of her relationship with PBS, Regina began producing one of the world’s first vegetarian cooking shows titled “Regina’s Vegetarian Table”, for which she wrote two companion cookbooks – ‘Regina’s Vegetarian Table’ and ‘Regina’s International Vegetarian Favorites’ both available at ReginasVegetarianTable.com.
You can watch all her cooking show episodes from the TV series on YouTube.
RVT aired for 6 seasons throughout the United States, Canada and Australia, introducing new production elements to the world of televised cooking shows and talking about healthy fats and oils.
Conscious Media Network:
As Regina’s career progressed, so did her decades long exploration into the world of esoteric and hidden sciences – the reality beyond the 5 sense world. Guidance from these realms suggested it was time to bring her skill set to the world of video/televised media, so in late 2004, along with her husband Scott, she co-created ‘Conscious Media Network’, the first online network to feature full length original video interviews with authors and experts in the realms of the meta-physical, healing arts and alternative theories, opening up a world that many had experienced but never had access to on this scale.
In 2012, Conscious Media Network merged with Gaiam TV in 2012, with Regina serving as anchor in their new media division on Open Minds and Healing Matrix.
GaiamTV was renamed Gaia in November 2015, where Regina continues to conduct interviews to the present day.
