Fort Lauderdale, Fla., July 7, 2021 – Daytime talk show legend, Montel Williams will host the soon-to-launch talk show, Competitive Edge, on Lifetime network.

Sports stars and celebrities understand the need to promote personal branding and Competitive Edge provides that within the 30-minute show. The “by invitation only” nature of the show allows for each guest to highlight their brand during 3 to 5-minute segments.

“This show is dedicated to providing solutions to our viewers, giving them the Competitive Edge in life. Montel accomplishes this by interviewing pro athletes and celebrities, learning about their experiences both on and off the field and stage,” says Executive Producer, Wali Waiters.

Star athletes who understand their personal brands are as important as their athletic brands, join BrandStar Sports & Entertainment, to work with professionals who will help drive their personal brands to success.
