We are super excited at Savvy to have Shawne Duperon- 6-Time EMMY® winning Media Coach on this Friday at 1pm ET. We'll Will talk about her Project Forgive, & how gossip can be used for good.

Mention the word gossip, and many people think of spiteful rumors spread without regard to the truth. In reality, malicious rumor mongering makes up only a small fraction of what constitutes gossip, media expert Shawne Duperon says.

A five-time EMMY® Award winning TV producer, PBS host, networking guru and Ph.D. candidate in interpersonal communications, Shawne has researched how gossip impacts culture, the workplace, media and personal lives.  

“Gossip is our cultural glue. It is what holds us together,” she says.

While conducting research into media theory, Shawne identified connections between our cultural reference points — the subjects of what is called gossip — and how news is reported.
