AARP The Magazine Launches “AARP The Magazine Presents” Live Video Series
HGTV’s Property Brothers announced as first guests of the series

WASHINGTON—AARP The Magazine (ATM) is thrilled to launch “AARP The Magazine Presents,” a new live video-streaming series that brings the nation’s most-read magazine to life with special celebrity interviews, interactive Q&A’s and helpful tips on health, finance, lifestyle, travel and more.

HGTV hosts and lifestyle experts, Drew and Jonathan Scott, will kick off the first of this occasional series with their best stuck-at-home renovation advice, complete with an interactive Q&A, on Aug. 19 at 7 p.m. ET. Now that everyone is cooped up during the pandemic, home renovations could be on the rise, and many are wondering where and how to start. Former world boxing champion turned lifestyle TV personality Laila Ali will be the guest moderator.

According to AARP’s 2018 Home and Community Preferences survey, 3 out of 4 adults age 50 and older want to stay in their homes and communities as they age. Whatever changes older adults are considering making to their homes as they age, the brothers can help people 50+ make choices that are right for their budget and unlock the full potential of their homes. 

On Wednesday, Aug. 19 at 7 p.m. ET, Drew and Jonathan, stars of HGTV’s “Property Brothers: Forever Home” and “Brother vs. Brother,” will answer questions and give advice on:

  • Simple, free or low-cost home repairs and improvements
  • What to look for when building, buying or renting a new home  
  • Repairs and upgrades you can tackle on your own, and those that call for a professional
  • How to create a home that you and your family will love — forever

Participants can stream the live event from the comfort of their homes on Facebook and aarp.org and ask questions in an interactive Q&A. Registrations is required and can be accessed here.
