Ronda Pierson’s recipe for success has spanned more than two decades. As a health reporter and cooking show host, national news anchor and even actor, she has appeared in hundreds of films, commercials, corporate videos and TV shows. Since joining Screen Actors Guild in her teens, Ronda has risen to the top as a News Anchor, host of several hit National TV programs, and as contributing culinary host and producer on Discovery Health Channel’s “Health Point.”
Ronda first began mixing her love of food and passion for broadcasting in Los Angeles over 20 years ago as a local restaurant reporter at KCAL. In 1994, while working as an evening news anchor and reporter in New York, Ronda was courted by LIFETIME TELEVISION to host kitchen segments for “Our Home,” one of daytime’s most highly rated programs. A national audience continued to follow her as she hosted weekly Cooking shows with The Love Chef and other top names including Bobby Flay.
However, it was the Braun Corporation that recognized Ronda’s flair on kitchen sets rather than behind an anchor desk. The veteran TV personality was hired to nationally represent the company’s culinary line on home shopping giant, QVC. As a regular on-air guest for Braun’s wide range of kitchen products, Ronda experienced huge success and fan base as the corporation’s cooking expert from 1998-2001.
Later, Ronda was named “home entertaining expert” when chosen by QVC to represent their “RSVP,” proprietary line of tabletop products. From 2001-2003, she demonstrated to millions of viewers the art of table-setting while offering creative entertaining advice.
From there, Ronda was hand-picked by legendary “set it and forget it” rotisserie king Ron Popeil for the high-profile on-air role as new “face” and spokesperson for Ronco’s mass culinary line in 2005. Just two years later, Ronda was promoted to Director of Infomercials and Live TV. The role encompassed hosting all product instructional videos and creating recipes for all new cooking products as well as hosting infomercials for Ronco products.
Now, as Sr. VP and Executive Producer of Great Chefs International, Ronda is overseeing the launch of a series of cookbooks as well as the creation of a new line of Great Flavors concentrated stock bases. Next on her plate, Ronda will oversee a flaming hot, new TV series, currently in pre-production. While her plate may seem full, she’s a major multi-tasker who loves planning what’s next on her menu.
Now helping corporate partners with the secret sauce of custom cookbook design and printing, Great Chefs International represents half the team of cookbook powerhouse, Partners In Publishing. Focusing on understanding the marketing and sales needs of major kitchenware manufacturers, Great Chef International’s newest venture offers companies a mouthwatering one stop turnkey opportunity for recipe testing and development, photography, layout and design and printing of customized cookbooks for clients including Philips, Ninja, HSN, Rangemate.
