The Money Pit Home Improvement Radio Show is the nation’s only nationally syndicated he-said/she-said home improvement radio team. This unique combination reaches both a male and female audience and capitalizes on the increasing influence women have when making home improvement decisions.
Host Tom Kraeutler is a nationally known home improvement expert who spent over a decade as a professional home inspector. With experience spanning over 6,000 home inspections, Tom knows both how buildings are put together and more importantly, how they fall apart.
Beyond home improvement, Tom was the on-air Home Editor for MSNBC’s popular Home Page Television Show where he also reported on consumer protection, auto safety, crime prevention, energy efficiency and much more. He appeared for three years as the home improvement expert for CNN’s “Take it Personally,” a prime-time personal finance program, and is frequently featured on CNN.Com, the network’s preeminent internet show.
Co-Host Leslie Segrete is a home improvement expert with an eye for design and the skills to get the job done. She knows what turns a house into a home and has the tips and ideas to make improvements easy and fun. As the on-air talent for TLC’s hit series While You Were Out, Leslie designs, builds and executes projects to please one unsuspecting spouse and millions of her fans every single week.
Before TLC, her wide-ranging professional background included stints as the Art Director for the Rikki Lake Show and the Oxygen Network, as well as roles at Good Morning America and Giorgio Armani. She also enjoys cooking and holds a degree from the French Culinary Institute. Leslie is a seamstress, carpenter, decorator, designer and professional chef all wrapped up in one very energetic package. She’s a true renaissance woman through and through!
