The May/June issue of Live Happy magazine, a glossy launched in the fall of 2013, is all about finding happiness at work. A challenge for all of us, but one that the folks at Good Morning America must meet while starting their workday at the crack of 4 a.m.
This morning on the program, the cover featuring co-hosts Amy Robach, Robin Roberts, Lara Spencer, George Stephanopoulos and Ginger Zee was officially unveiled. Inside is a four-page feature article by freelance contributor Gina Roberts-Grey, who is based in upstate New York.
Other companies tapped for the issue include Brown Paper Tickets, Patagonia, Logitech and EverFi. And speaking of workplaces, the background of Live Happy co-founder and CEO Kym Yancey is well worth noting:
Yancey is a gold record-winning composer and producer. In the late ’70s and early ’80s, he was signed to Capitol Records as the drummer and a singer with the legendary funk band SUN, which frequently appeared on Soul Train and in sold-out concerts throughout North and South America. He later parlayed his music skills into advertising, and launched one of the top multicultural advertising agencies in the United States. Along the way, Yancey wrote award-winning commercial jingles, receiving more than 200 awards for creative excellence.
Yancey’s fellow co-founder, editorial director Deborah Heisz, came up with the idea to highlight the GMA gang. It’s the first time the magazine has put media personalities on the cover.
