Roy Choi Gets His Own CNN Show


Chef Roy Choi isn’t a stranger to media. Social media played a huge role in establishing his Kogi truck empire, and earlier this year, he worked with director Jon Favreau on the indie film Chef. He also wrote for KoreAm a number of years ago and recently released his own memoir.

It isn’t any surprise, then, to hear that Choi is now hitting TV.

Choi and Favreau have been teasing snippets of his new show on CNN called Street Food, according to CNN confirmed that Choi was on board, but they’re being pretty tight-lipped about the whole thing. Favreau’s involvement is also unclear— speculates if the show will be a tasting tour of street food, or if it will be a cooking show featuring Choi, or both.
