Growing up in the then-murder capital of America, Gary, Indiana, local barber turned talk show host Jamie McGrone knows all too well what it means to have to turn tragedy into triumph. Although he grew up in a loving, large family, he understood that nothing would be given to him. He would have to earn it.

McGrone decided to step out on faith and create a platform where other business owners and everyday people could share their stories on how they have survived life’s most damnable moments.

“Living your most incredible life is a choice,” says McGrone.v

We had the pleasure of sitting down and speaking with McGrone.

Please tell us about your new talk show?

I’m so excited about my talk show, That’s Why I’m Here. I created this platform because I wanted to give people the opportunity to come and tell their story of how they turned tragedy into triumph. It was for those who may have never got a chance to be bold and be vocal about life’s traumatic events and to talk about their brokenness in the midst of people who were there for support as well. I saw the need for broken men and women to be restored through life, love, and relationships and I wanted every guest and my viewing audience to get to the greatest part of life.

What is it you want people to take away from being on your show/watching your show?

I want my guests and my viewing audience to be motivated and inspired to do something greater with their lives. I want to touch the hearts of people because at the end of the day, it’s all about living your best life. And you get to define what that is.

What is next for Jamie McGrone for the rest of the 2020?

Well, I’m ending the year with a red carpet premiere for the media world, giving them an opportunity to see what I have created and why television needs this platform. It’s entitled, “The Oscars in November” and I am looking to have a blast. Also, I’ll be filming more episodes for the 2021 season.

What can people expect from you in 2021?

In 2021, I expect my talk show to be well on its way for its introduction to the media world and to be on pace to change the face of television one episode at a time. I expect to help my guests get to their greatest part of life and begin to live life beautiful.
