   Turner Classic Movies is hoping to draw in a new generation of potential viewers through the millennial, Tiffany Vazquez (right), who was named host of the network’s Saturday daytime block. She joined TCM in May 2016, becoming just the third host in the network’s history, and the first female and person-of-color to be hired.

   Born in Bronx, New York and raised in Queens, Vazquez holds two graduate degrees, one from Saint John’s University in international communications, and the other from New York University in cinema studies having interned at the Film Society of Lincoln Center. She became a fan of classic cinema after watching It Happened One Night. It sparked an interest for the 29-year-old in the genre of Screwball Comedy of the 1930s.

In 2015, Vazquez hosted TCM’s December Spotlight on Girlfriends in the Movies, and was tapped to be a roving reporter at the 2016 TCM Classic Film Festival.

    Vazquez currently works for GIPHY, the world’s largest search engine for GIFs, as a senior editor in charge of all film content. Vazquez resides in New York City. She officially debuts on TCM on June 4th.

Until next time>                               “never forget”
