CafeMom Studios' Newest Season Will Bring Moms Everything from Unique Mom Perspectives on the Elections to Military Chef-Approved Dinnertime Solutions

New York, NY (August 20, 2012)- CafeMom, the number one site for moms with more than nine million monthly unique visitors, announces CafeMom Studios' third season of programming. This season will have 13 shows, including four new series, featuring a wide variety of topics moms care about and a mixture of mom personalities ranging from popular mom blogger Kristen Chase, to real moms from the CafeMom community with extraordinary stories.

The CafeMom Studios channel launched in January 2012 as part of YouTube's Original Channel initiative, and has already launched more than 400 episodes from more than 20 series. Recent programming highlights include the Moms Matter 2012 Road Trip, where CafeMom Election Correspondent Lindsay Ferrier traveled to swing states to report on issues that moms care about most; "It's Cancer, Baby," the inspiring story of mom Joanna Montgomery and her journey battling cancer as a new mother; and challenging an average guy to the daily mom feat of making a PB&J sandwich while holding a squirming baby in "Mom vs. Man."

"We are excited to be bringing back some of our past hits this season, as well as introducing some new amazing mom voices to the mix," said Tracy Odell, executive vice president for CafeMom. "This season offers a wide representation of moms, revealing the diversity of motherhood."
