Following the passing of publisher Robert Kennedy
, his wife Tosca Reno will assume the position of publisher and chief executive officer at Robert Kennedy Publishing (RKP) in Mississauga.
Reno has been involved with the workings of RKP for a long time. It began with her writing a column for RKP's Oxygen magazine and has expanded into much more.
While providing additional work for the magazines Reps! and Clean Eating, Reno has published 11 books with RKP's book devision, including the popular EatClean Diet Series. In 2010 she became a New York Times bestselling author with her book Your Best Body Now: Look and Feel Fabulous at Any Age the Eat-Clean Way.
It was as per Kennedy's request that Reno be appointed to his former position and the aim is for business to continue as normal, said PR spokeswoman for RKP Silvie Bordeaux. This decision had already been finalized as Kennedy "very much had his affairs in order," she said.
It is clear Reno possesses the same drive for fitness that Kennedy and RKP are famous for. In addition to her work with RKP's magazines and books, Reno has toured North America conducting health and wellness seminars to schools, companies, and other organizations. She has also spread the word of healthy living as a guest on numerous national television programs including The Marilyn Denis Show, Entertainment Tonight, The Doctors, and was the star of her own Gemini Award-winning reality show named Tosca: Flexing at 49.
