Do I know how to pick ’em or do I know how to pick ’em?

In April we profiled Kirsten Sanford, Ph.D., known in online video circles as Dr. Kiki, in our Digital Dealmakers column.

The rising online star is making the jump to on-air television. Last week, Discovery’s Science Channel flew her to New York to cover the World Science Festival, where she was the reporter on-site for the network. Stay tuned for more details on how the Science Channel will use the footage.

For now, here’s a recent video of Dr. Kiki on Revision3’s “Pop Siren.”

Wow, she's great! She's got a lot of energy and makes science interesting. Though, hopefully for TV they'll coach her to not bounce around so much when she talks and advice her to get a more stylish haircut. Otherwise, Dr. KiKi should make a natural transition.
