For Immediate Release

January 11, 2009

ALA Graphics adds Rachel Maddow and Seth Meyers to the Celebrity READ poster campaign. Both Maddow and Meyers report the news, but through very different channels. Maddow, host of “The Rachel Maddow Show” on MSNBC and Air America Radio, covers an array of politics, pop culture and more through diverse interviews and lively debates. She is also a Rhodes Scholar, has a doctorate in political science and a background in HIV/AIDS activism and prison reform.

Meyers brings comedy to his nationally recognized reporting as anchor of “Saturday Night Live: Weekend Update.” He joined the cast of “Saturday Night Live” in 2001 and has served as the show’s head writer since 2006. Meyers began his career performing at Chicago’s ImprovOlympic before moving on to Boom Chicago Theater in Amsterdam, Holland. He is the recipient of two Writer’s Guild of America Awards.
