CBS has called upon Kristine to guest co-host the daytime talk show “The Talk” from time to time. She also played the role of a news anchor (a real stretch!) on episodes of the CBS hit prime time shows “Person of Interest” and “Elementary.”
In February of 2014, Kristine conducted an interview with Jonny Lee Miller about his involvement with Jonah’s Just Begun (JJB), like Jonny Lee Miller, Kristine was moved by the story of Jonah’s Just Begun and wanted to help too. Kristine is now part of the team, helping to promote JJB and bringing awareness to Sanfilippo Syndrome.
