Television edit

Danny Lipford first hosted a local cable home improvement program, Remodeling Today, in Mobile, in 1988.[3] The program would grow throughout the region, with nearly 25 affiliates by 1997. In 1998, Lipford was reached by Today's Homeowner magazine to partner for a nationally syndicated program. The program premiered in June 1998 as Today's Homeowner with Danny Lipford. Soon after, the program was syndicated to over 100 television markets.[4][5] In 2001, AOL Time Warner bought the Times Mirror magazine group and discontinued the magazine. Lipford licensed the Today's Homeowner brand and took over the show again.[6] By 2013, Today's Homeowner aired on over 210 stations nationwide.[7] In 2008, it was nominated for a Daytime Emmy Award in Outstanding Special Class Writing.[8] Earlier seasons are currently streaming on the Xumo app.[9]

On the program, Lipford is joined by Chelsea Lipford Wolf, Joe Truini, and Jodi Marks. Features include home improvement tips, projects, products, and trends.

Radio edit

In 2009, Lipford took over the radio program Homefront after the death of longtime host and founder Don Zeman.[1][10] Along with co-hosts Allen Lyle and Amy Dodsworth, Lipford interviews special guests, answers caller questions and shares tales from the world of home improvement.[11] On September 22, 2012, the title of the radio program was changed to reflect the television show.[12] The program is available on radio stations throughout the United States. It is streamed and archived at the Today's Homeowner website and at the websites of affiliates. It is also available as a podcast.[13]

Retirement and Ending of Today's Homeowner edit

In June 2023, Danny Lipford announced that he would be retiring from Today's Homeowner media and that he would be passing the reigns to his daughter Chelsea.[14] The TV series will continue to air until September 3, 2023, while the radio show including its feature vignettes will continue to air until the end of 2023.[15]
