Many thanks to Raymond, for coming by our studio for this interview. We’ve watched him grow over the years, and are so proud of the young man he’s become. This is a great opportunity for him, and we know this movie will be a big hit! Be sure to check out Disney/Pixar’s The Good Dinosaur in theaters November 25th.

I wanted to do something special to celebrate my 16th birthday, and what better way than to throw a party for the Jennifer Smart Foundation? We’re also celebrating bringing the Find Your Voice program to a new home in Southern California. This star-filled event, featuring costumes and young music performers, will help us raise money to build our new center, and we hope you’ll join us.

You’re invited to “Show Your Character” on October 27th from 1-5pm in Van Nuys, CA. This event benefits the Jennifer Smart Foundation’s Find Your Voice program, which works to improve communication skills and self esteem in sick, healthy and disadvantaged kids.

This fun afternoon, hosted by Disney XD’s Ryan Ochoa and spotlighting several young artists, include special performances by the Ochoa Boyz featuring Chi-Town Finest Breakers, and by Tim Urban of American Idol.

We appreciate your support, whether or not you can attend. Please share this information with everyone you know!

Hope you’ll rock out with us at “Show Your Character” on the 27th!

The Lion King is a Disney classic that has been re-released in 3D. Many of us grew up with this movie, which was originally hand-drawn. It was fun finding out what The Lion King means to the people who worked on it, and their memories of creating it.

The Cars crew is back for an international adventure in Cars 2, and the Disney Channel stars were out to support their favorite autos. I enjoyed catching up with cast members from Kickin’ It, Shake It Up, and Pair of Kings. Vroom vroom!

Enjoy this chat I had with Bridgit and her Good Luck Charlie co-star, Jason Dolley. You will hear Bridgit’s music highlighted this month on JENNiRADIO, including her latest single for Disney’s Friends for Change, “We Can Change the World.”

On the red carpet for Mars Needs Moms, I kept hearing the question, “What would you do if your mom was kidnapped by martians?” Instead, I asked people – like Bailee Madison, Cody Simpson, Matt Timmons and Sammi Hanratty – what they would do if their mom actually WAS a martian.

Since Milo complains about his mom constantly asking him to take out the trash and eat his broccoli, I thought I’d check with the stars to see what their moms nag them about most…

Now I can officially say I’ve talked to a Knight – Sir Elton John! The cast of Shake It Up kept everyone on their toes at the Gnomeo & Juliet premiere. It was so nice to see Caroline Sunshine again. (Marmaduke seems like so long ago!) And it’s always fun to talk to Nate Hartley and Ryan Ochoa. Plus, I finally got to meet Stephen Kramer Glickman from Big Time Rush.

Wow, this carpet was elecTRONic! The blue lights were so cool, and it was really fun to see the light cycle up close. I learned a lot about the making of the movie and the legacy behind it. I also met some of the stars of Prom. Listen for my review of the movie on AM 1240 in Albuquerque and on the stream right here at

Happy Thanksgiving! I talked to a bunch of stars at the Tangled premiere, including people from the new Disney show Shake it Up. They shared with me some of the things they’re thankful for this year…

At the Tangled premiere, it was fun chatting with the cast of Shake it Up, and seeing favorites like Kathryn Newton and Caitlyn Taylor Love again. I learned about the challenge of animating Rapunzel’s hair, and what it’s like to put a new spin on a classic fairy tale. Mandy Moore looked like a princess, and Zachary Levi was nothing like a bandit – he is so nice. I can’t wait to see this movie!

By the way, I first interviewed Zach back in 2005 at Sky High – one of my first red carpets. You can watch it here, to see how much we’ve both changed.
