Join our show hosts Sheletta Brundidge and Tane Danger as we celebrate Outstanding Achievements of media professionals across the Upper Midwest Emmy® Region.
Sheletta and Tane will bring their unique comedic personalities to the show which means you just might not know what they’ll do next!
Sheletta Brundidge is an Emmy® Award-winning comedian, podcaster and beloved media personality.
Sheletta has been featured in People magazine and USA Today and has appeared on Good Morning America, The Tamron Hall Show, The Steve Harvey Show, and The Ellen DeGeneres Show. She can be heard on WCCO Radio on “The Sheletta Show”.
You can also hear her on one of the two podcasts she hosts on SHElettaMakesMeLaugh.com, the podcasting platform she founded and created to celebrate Black culture.
Tane Danger is a host, interviewer, producer, and comedian.
He is the co-founder and host of the nationally renowned civics-inspired improv comedy show, The Theater of Public Policy. At each show, Tane interviews newsmakers and big thinkers live on stage, usually over a beer. Then the show’s cast of improv comedians takes everything that’s been said and turns it into entirely unscripted improv comedy theater. The result is what the Star Tribune described as “C-SPAN invaded by the cast of SNL.” The show has produced more than 500 programs since it started in 2011, earning praise from both audiences and publications from Forbes Magazine to Roll Call. Tane is also the director of the Westminster Town Hall Forum; the midwest’s largest and most prestigious speaker’s series. Founded in 1980, the Forum has hosted lectures by more than 300 national-level speakers, including Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Elie Wiesel, Maya Angelou, Gwen Ifill, and Vice President Al Gore, just to name a few.
Tane regularly appears on the Twin Cities Public Television program Almanac, providing colorful essays on politics and life in Minnesota.
Even with all those credits to his name, Tane is probably best known for his webseries with Metro Transit, “Hey! Where Does This Bus Go?” In each episode, Tane rides a Twin Cities bus route from start to finish, chatting with riders, cracking jokes, singing songs, and noting landmarks along the way.
