Chobani featured on TODAY Show and Rock Center

By WKTV News

HAPPENING TONIGHT - Local Greek yogurt maker, Chobani, will be the focus of a piece by Reporter Harry Smith Thursday night on Rock Center with Brian Williams. Smith recently visited Chobani headquarters in Chenango County.

He calls Chobani CEO Hamdi Ulukaya "a new kind of CEO."

Ulukaya's personal wealth is now valued at $1.1 billion by the Bloomberg Billionaire's Index.

The company, Chobani, is still a spring chicken at just five years old, but this year, it is projected to take in a billion dollars in sales.

NEWSChannel 2 Anchor Kristen Copeland will do a Q and A with Smith about his tour to Chobani tonight during the Live at Five NEWShour on WKTV.

There you can catch a sneak peek of what to expect during tonight's broadcast on Rock Center at 10 pm with Brian Williams, also on WKTV.

Smith says, "I think Chobani has lifted the whole market because you have all of these other brands that are doing equally as well throughout New York State, so it's a huge business."
