Ken Pinckney ’81 and his family will appear on ‘Live with Kelly and Ryan’ Thursday

Ken Pinckney ’81 of Glendale, Wisconsin, will appear with his wife, Lora L. Hyler, and their son, Will, Thursday, Sept. 17, live via Skype on the national television program “Live with Kelly and Ryan.” Kelly Ripa and Ryan Seacrest are the hosts.

In a segment titled “Home with … the Pinckney Family,” the family will discuss their home life during quarantine, Ken’s work-from-home status, Will’s graduation with his welding degree, and Lora’s new book for children about dealing with the coronavirus, Our Bodies Stay Home, Our Imaginations Run Free.

The story follows 7-year-old Maya who is struggling with her feelings as she misses her classmates and teacher, her friends, her grandparents, and visits to her favorite places. She is sad about her upcoming birthday being observed during quarantine but with the help of her family learns to do her part and to find joy where she can.

Hyler previously published the award-winning middle-grade novel, The Stupendous Adventures of Mighty Marty Hayes, which features a multicultural cast of superheroes.

The segment on “Live with Kelly and Ryan” usually airs near the end of the show. Local airtimes can be checked at kellyandryan.com and selecting the “find your channel” blue box in the upper left corner.
