Creator Spotlight: Monique Soltani of WineOh TVIn this week’s edition of the Creator Spotlight, we’ve got the mistress of merlot herself, Monique Soltani! Monique is the director of content and host at WineOh TV and boasts decades of experience in broadcast journalism. Q: What spurred you to start your own content channel? A: Wine Oh TV originally started as a segment that I created and aired on various media outlets. When I met my husband early on in our relationship, he said: “You create all this amazing content for everyone else, why don’t you do it for yourself and own it?” This was a new concept for me. I’ve spent my career working as an anchor/reporter/producer for various networks. It never occurred to me that I could create my own. That’s how Wine Oh TV, the channel was born. Q: What do you hope to achieve with the Wine Oh TV Channel? A: I am committed to living my life with purpose and using the platform I’m given to help shine a light on people by sharing their stories. We bring people to come together by breaking bread or breaking open a bottle. The final goal we have in mind is Connecting through Culture. Q: How has working with BOLT helped you to achieve your goals? A: I’m thrilled to be able to share the stories of the amazing women and men behind the bottle with BOLT. I’m very grateful for the opportunity and excited to see what comes next. Thanks for reading! Join us on Telegram to participate in discussions on how we can make BOLT a movement we can be proud of.
