Co-Creator, Writer, Executive Producer, Host
Introspective, balanced and a nurturer of humanity, Claudia Hallowell is a philanthropic woman of the world whose message of caring and spiritual voice powerfully brandishes from within.
Born and raised in the United States, Claudia's Finnish-Native American heritage accented her photogenic and runway model appeal. As a model she valued her time teaching self care, grooming, and self esteem classes to young delinquent teenage girls. After years of designing and making her own clothes, Claudia’s image as a fashionista emerged, with the philosophy that fashion is a delightful vehicle for expressing one’s spirit.
Claudia began her television career as a producer and co-host of a PBS philanthropic reality show, and as a PBS telethon host. Armed with an appreciation for the human spirit, she trained with top professionals in the fields of wellness, relationship dynamics, and self care. This led to the on-going development of stress management programs for firemen, policemen, SWAT teams and returning veterans. She also designed instructional modules for businesses on customer care, and for individuals and couples to help them understand themselves and improve their interpersonal relationships.
Claudia has an incredible passion for writing. Her large body of work is representative of her broad interests, including: mysteries, paranormal, fantasy-science fiction, romantic dramas, as well as children’s and inspirational books. Prolific in nature, Claudia keeps a keen eye to the evolution and wonderment of the human spirit - the esoteric cultivation that caresses our inner existence.
Finally, Claudia has also become an accomplished artist. Her contemporary and abstract paintings dwell in corporate and private collections throughout the United States and Europe. Painting continues to teach Claudia about joy and freedom – “the art of letting go.”
Her works exude with energy, linking her to the soul of humanity. As co-owner of Spirit Show Network, Claudia’s latest undertaking stations her as co-creator/executive producer/writer for the web/television Spirit Series - an expedition into fashion, art, music, love, and an appreciation for our planet Earth.
Claudia posits: “As we awaken to new levels of aliveness, we discover our own unique magic, enabling us to be the art of who we are.”

Smart yet beautiful, educated but not stuffy, caring and compassionate. These are just a few of the positive virtues that describe the bilingual (Spanish, English) Nia Lyte, a former Miss Hispania pageant winner and Peace Ambassador speaker for WFWP who holds a degree in marketing and is now the TV Host for Best of Art Basel Show aired by Comcast, Ovation TV and Xfinity TV. She received the Romanian-American Celebrities award for Beauty in Television Category and made it into the Standing ovations in Cable Fax December 2011. She also hosted a Monday-Friday, Web Internet Talk Show 2008-2010, which was one of the top live web shows on the internet with over a million viewers and over 10 million hits a month.
Her spokes model Lyte not only shines upon many other successful facets of the entertainment industry but also over several humanitarian causes. Gems such as being EM & CO’s 2009-2011 official online and TV host for their LA Fashion Week gala, her spokes model and Co-Founder duties for the Shin Koyamada Foundation that raises funds to help children around the world, and Lyte’s experience as a translator for Fox News, a music show co-host for UPN and spokes model for the Miss Multicultural Women of Today’s press tour in Los Angeles, are but a few sparkles of light that reflect her extensive background in television and broadcast and her undying commitment toward helping others.
Besides serving as a US Congress Intern in Washington, D.C. where she interviewed politicians from all over the world, and almost single-handedly running her ultra-popular, interview-style Web Internet Talk Show, Lyte also created the novel InBeau Program that teaches woman of all races, cultures and denominations that beauty comes from within. With all these various real rays of light, Lyte has developed well honed interviewing and interpersonal skills, and has built strong relationships with corporations, both of which are necessary for the successful running of a non-profit organization.
On a personal level, several of her life’s goals are geared towards messages of unity, love and peace. One of Lyte’s causes is to wake up people’s awareness that we are all one, no matter what color we are, religion, denomination, social class, gender or external situation we are all connected through an invisible cord of love and peace. She believes that a pure heart and mind are a powerful tool that can unite all cultures in the world, where common bonding topics like humanity, fashion, health, dreams and much more can connect the disconnected, unite the separated and bring peace to the violent.
