She recently launched Boston’s Red Carpet with Tonya Mezrich on NESN, featuring philanthropy and fashion as a follow-up to her role as resident fashion expert at NBC Boston. She is co-author of Charlie Numbers and the Man in the Moon, which was chosen as the required summer reading for all 4th graders in Boston Public Schools, and is slated to be developed into a TV series with Ellen Pompeo of Gray’s Anatomy. She and Ben live in Boston with their two kids and a pug. You can follow her at @tonyamezrich.
