Kollappallil oversees press strategy of TLC’s linear and multiplatform programming. She secured multiple cover stories and weekly magazine features for series across the network, helping to position TLC as a top 10 cable network for women. Next up is the re-launch of TLC’s “Toddlers and Tiaras.” On a personal level, she spent the last year overcoming breast cancer and continues to fight for women struggling with the disease. Her personal election campaign slogan would be, “Vote smarts over stupidity.”

My personal election campaign slogan would be…
Vote Smarts Over Stupidity
