LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) – A Louisville woman whose inspiring weight loss journey went viral will appear on a nationally syndicated talk show.
Asia Ford will appear on the premiere episode of the T.D. Jakes Show on Monday, Sep. 12.
In the episode titled “No Excuses”, Ford will discuss her personal success with losing hundreds of pounds with the popular Dallas preacher.
Ford’s story caught national attention in 2015 when she was feeling sick and struggled to finish the 10K Rodes City Run. Lieutenant Aubrey Gregory, a Louisville Metro Police officer who drove up to the scene during the race, saw Ford and was determined not to let her quit with a little encouragement.
The photo of Ford and Lt. Aubrey was shared thousands of time on social media and her story was picked up by People Magazine.
The T.D. Jakes Show will air on WHAS11 at 3 p.m.
