Ep 8 "Hollywood Moms' on Raising Showbiz Kids - Part 1"

Join our conversation about all things entertainment! “Lights Camera Convo” is a brand new podcast by Walid Chaya and Kavita Raj that's now on Rukus Avenue Radio on the iHeartRadio app.

Entertainment entrepreneurs Walid Chaya and Kavita Raj present a special two-part episode featuring two Hollywood moms who are the driving force behind their children's showbiz careers in music, dance, and acting. Tune in on Fridays of 3/29 and 4/5 at 3pm PT (6pm ET), with episodes available on all podcast platforms the week after airing.

Meet our two Special Guests, first Andrea Knoche, a dynamic mother and podcaster who fosters the talents of her two sons. Grant Knoche, renowned for his stint as a Kidz Bop Kid, has evolved into a Los Angeles-based singer-songwriter and producer. He was most recently on NBC's “American Song Contest” with his song “Mr Independent”. Meanwhile, Hunter Knoche, once a child star in commercials for Smucker's jam and in the cast of Barney, has seamlessly transitioned into a successful entrepreneur with a focus on creative brand deals for gamers. 

And our second Special Guest, Nanette Wilson, the influential force behind artist Ciara Riley Wilson, nurtured her daughter's talent, propelling her into the spotlight as a versatile performer and rising fashion designer from Portland, Oregon. Ciara Riley Wilson, known for dynamic roles in TV shows like "LA's Finest" and "Kim Possible," captivates audiences. Ciara is currently a series regular in “Freeridge” on Netflix.

Tune in Friday at 3pm PT (6pm ET) on the "Rukus Avenue Station" via the iHeartRadio app. Episodes are available on all podcast platforms the following week under "Lights Camera Convo," a fresh version tailored for Rukus based on our original podcast "Lights Camera Conversation."
