“I Promise To Always Make You Proud of Me.” An Inspiring Holiday Message From Todd Newton

Todd Newton – Popular TV Host, Inspirational Speaker, and Certified Life Coach – Reveals Two Heartfelt Promises That Changed His Life and Encourages Others to Make A Promise Today!

Appearing on “What’s Your Promise?,” Newton tells host Matthew Cossolotto:  “What a great mission you’re on, my friend … I can’t thank you enough for allowing me to be part of this Make-A-Promise campaign.”

Yorktown Heights, NY — December 24, 2010 — In a guest appearance on Matthew Cossolotto’s interview program “What’s Your Promise?,” popular TV host Todd Newton revealed two heartfelt promises that had a profound impact on his life.

Newton has been the host of E! Entertainment Television’s red carpet coverage of  various awards programs including the Academy Awards.  He is also known to millions of television viewers for his work on the Game Show Network, the Travel Network, and CBS.  This year, Newton has been traveling the world as the host of the Travel Network’s World’s Wildest Game Shows.

The first promise Newton discussed in detail was the one he made to his grandmother, Eleanor Kruse (“Nana”), who performed as a comedienne in the St. Louis area during World War II.  After describing his Nana as someone who inspired and encouraged him and as the most important person in his life when he was growing up, Newton recounted the day he went to visit his grandmother in the hospital when she was terminally ill.  He could see that she was fading quickly.  He knew this would be the last conversation he would have with her.  So he leaned in close to speak to her and the following words came out spontaneously and from the heart.

“Nana … I promise to always make you proud of me.”

Talking about this promise some 17 years later is still an emotional experience for Newton, who became choked up during the interview.

Later in the interview, Newton made the following statement about the promise he made to Nana:  “This was the most important thing I have ever done, or said, or ever will commit to in my life.  It literally has changed my life for the better.”

The second promise Newton talked about during the program was made at the time of the birth of his two children.

Newton said he made the following promise to his children:  “I promise I will always be here to guide you and protect you.”

Toward the end of the interview, Newton underscored that these two promises have had the most profound effect on his life.  He said he has tried to live up to both promises every single day.
