Susanne Whatley and Gregory Zarian were taking turns before a brightly lit mirror to finish any last makeup and wardrobe touches before taping “Healthline.”
Minutes later, they would take the stairs to the studio’s second floor to host an episode on disaster preparedness. The show’s guests were Glendale Fire Chief Harold Scoggins and the department’s Public Safety Director Tanya Gregorian.
A product of Glendale Adventist Medical Center and the Armenian Media Group of America, Inc., Healthline offers Whatley and Zarian a platform to interview health professionals and explore general wellness and health research within the field.
Since it began airing in August 2009 on Glendale’s local Charter Cable channel, Healthline has regularly reached more than 300,000 people, officials say. The original mission remains intact: “To get people talking about their health,” as Zarian put it. “It’s about people really paying attention to their health, asking their doctors questions — knowing what to ask.”
