NEW YORK, Aug. 29 /PRNewswire/ -- Paltalk, the leading real-time, video-based community, today announced it will broadcast a live talk show hosted by Maxim Radio's Diana Falzone from Fort Hood, TX, the largest military post in the United States. The two-hour program will take place on Thursday, August 30th from 6 pm EDT to 8 pm EDT and will be broadcast live on Paltalk's interactive video platform, where an online audience can see, hear and interact with Falzone and her guests.

Falzone hosts a weekly show on Paltalk, "The Diana Falzone Show," which airs Thursdays at 11 am ET and covers pop culture, current events and relationship issues. The special Fort Hood installment will focus on how to keep romance alive in long-distance relationships, and Falzone will interview audience members about their personal experiences. The show will be available online for free at www.paltalk.com/dianafalzone .

"The chance to host my Paltalk show from Fort Hood is a great privilege," said Falzone. "I'm excited to meet my fans at the post and to have the opportunity to interact with servicemen and women via video, regardless of where they are located. Long-distance relationships can be challenging for anyone to maintain, and it will be very interesting to hear how those in the military handle the particular challenges of staying in touch through a deployment."

"The Diana Falzone Show is a fan favorite on Paltalk, and we jumped at the chance to work with Diana and Fort Hood on such a special event," said Joel Smernoff, Paltalk's COO and President. "We see this as a unique opportunity to give those serving in the military a chance to connect with one of Paltalk's and Maxim Radio's most popular personalities, and for Diana's fans around the world to get a glimpse of what life is like at the largest military post in the United States. It's also a great testament to how interactive video communities can really bring people together in unique ways and to Paltalk's commitment to offering compelling and exciting programming for all of our users."
