iHollywoodTV hosted by Noah Wilson is the go-to source for celebrity news, pop culture, red carpet premieres, behind the scenes, and star studded celebrity interviews! iHollywoodTV recently partnered with INDISTRY to launch a brand new ‘Celebrity Reel Channel’ with Noah as its newest millennial entertainment authority. As the host, he will bring a fresh perspective to celebrity news and interviews in the areas of television, film, fashion, including exclusive interviews with INDISTRY’s emerging stars.
We were lucky enough to ask host, Noah, a few questions about the new partnership and get a couple insights into what the future of iHollywoodTV has in store.
Congratulations on the your new partnership with INDISTRY! Can you tell us more about iHollywoodTV’s new Celebrity Reel Channel and what INDISTRY is all about?
iHollywoodTV will expand as we air exclusively on INDISTRY. You will get to see a new side of the show’s content as we incorporate events, fashion, music, films, and on-location segments in the show. Everything is going on-demand and I think during this time it was a great move for my company and myself. We have everything to put on a great show and I really hope the viewers fall in love with the show as much as we love making it for them. Every week will be something new and fun on the show. My team and I are very excited! INDISTRY is such a unique and overall incredible streaming service that allows creatives like me to reach a more global audience and they truly understand the shift in entertainment where millennials are responding to content that is meaningful in our lives. INDISTRY’s platform is a community for creatives where we can celebrate each other’s art and engage in a new way. Viewers can use the code “iHollywoodTV” and receive a 60 day FREE trial to watch the show by visiting www.indistrytv.com or watching on the iOS or Android app.
Tell us a little bit about yourself!
A lot of people best know me from YouTube. I’ve had a passion for the entertainment industry ever since I was 8 years old. I knew I wanted to do this after watching the popular daytime talk show “LIVE! With Regis & Kelly”. Their energy and the way they interacted on camera and communicated with their guests intrigued me. I don’t think a lot of my fans know, but my sister and I use to do little “pretend shows” at home and I would use my toy box as a desk and have my sister as Kelly while I would be Reeg (Regis). Then, I would have stuffed animals as my guests! Now I’m interviewing actual talent and I’ve been blessed to be able to do this and I don’t take any of it for granted. I’m so thankful for all the stars I’ve been able to speak with!
How did you come up with the idea of iHollywoodTV?
iHollywoodTV was thankfully not a hard planning process. Before I made the switch to iHollywoodTV my channel name was “NoahPOPTV”. I made the switch because I saw that my audience was more interested in celebrity entertainment. And it paid off! Viewers are more connected and engaged with iHollywoodTV. I never knew going in to rebranding that I would eventually end up having my own on-demand show series. This opportunity allows me to show my personality more and really think outside of the box with my team on what we can do on the show.
Were you always planning to be in the entertainment industry?
If I never came home sick from school in second grade and happened to come across an episode of “LIVE! With Regis & Kelly”, I don’t think I would have planned to be in the industry. I want to inspire and show young millennials that if you put hard work in and the time, you will succeed, and your dreams will come true. It takes a lot of work, but you can do anything you want to do as long as you keep at it and are confident at what you do.
Why did you choose YouTube as a platform to create?
I chose YouTube because you have the ability to grow and build a fan base up for yourself. You can’t just expect to get your content on a bigger platform if you haven’t had time to spread your wings and fly. YouTube and you guys (BroadbandTV) have been so great to me and I will forever love you and be thankful for that. You gave me a chance to build my channel and I’m truly grateful. You’ve gotten me to where I’m at today, so thank you!
If you could interview any celebrity who would it be and why?
It would be Kelly Ripa. She is on my dream list. I don’t know if it will ever happen, but it would be really cool to bring her on my show and thank her for inspiring me in my life to pursue a career in hosting. Of course, I visit her when I’m in NYC at the show, but just to have her on my show would mean so much to me. It would probably be one emotional interview for me.
You’ve been involved in Red Nose Day for a few years now, what are some other great charities and movements you’re looking forward to featuring on your channel in the future?
Red Nose Day is such an incredible organization and one I just ADORE! I would really like to get involved with Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals to help kids and bring smiles, love, and laughter to their faces. I love kids! They warm my heart so much. In the future, I hope I can also do voice acting for animations. It’s one of my goals to star as a character for a young kids television series.
Any advice for all the young creators out there, especially those who are interested in the entertainment industry?
I say keep doing you. Keep at it! Even though you might get discouraged and feel like everything you are doing is not working, it is. The right time will come. Just block out all the negative. Before going in this business, I suggest to everyone, you must have a game plan on your project and have goals set to where you want to see yourself in the next couple of months and years.
Last but not least, who would you get to star as you in the movie about your life?
Wow. This is a good question. I would say for my young kid days, Jacob Tremblay, my teen years, Garrett Clayton, and my early 30’s and up, James Marsden. I think that would be one heck of a cast, wouldn’t it?!
