“It will be great to sit down again with Garry Meier as he is a perceptive, witty, and fantastic radio personality. There are so many benefits to a diet that includes the high quality ginger that is used in Reed’s products. Also, the history of ginger itself as a remedy for nausea provides direct support for our new ‘Reed’s Rx’ products,” said Mr. Chris Reed, Founder, Chairman and CEO of Reed's, Inc. “Garry has been a long time enthusiastic supporter of our all natural products. The recent launch of our new ‘Reed’s Rx’ line of over-the-counter ginger-based remedies for nausea and motion sickness is directly related to the discussions Garry has had in the past about our products. I look forward to updating him and his listeners on the solid growth picture we are experiencing.”
Meier rose to prominence in Chicago as part of one of the successful radio duos in the country, 'The Steve & Garry Show.' The fifteen-year run garnered international publicity, as well as an Emmy for the TV show 'Greetings From Graceland.' Meier also gained renown for his highly acclaimed eight-year run on 'The Roe & Garry Show.' In addition to these accomplishments, Meier has displayed his wit and energy as a solo host and as a feature reporter for WGN-TV's morning show.
