The comeback is better than the setback
Karyn is no stranger to Headlines.
The former Mrs. Florida, activist, outspoken journalist, and political personality is well known for her regular appearances as a television commentator and for her online series “Behind The Headlines”. Behind The Headlines is an investigative series that takes viewers “behind the headlines” of the nation’s biggest stories to highlight the inaccuracies of headlines and being viewers "Truthbombs" that are often contrary to what's reported in the media. The first episode of Behind The Headlines set the record straight where the headlines differed from the actual facts in Karyn Turk’s own very public media story.
Previously she played an entertainment host for Behind the Headlines with celebrity interviews, nationally distributed through YourNews with 200 Broadcast Affiliates across the U.S. and the Eye On Channels, She has also appeared as a weekly commentator for RT International, the first news channel on YouTube to receive over a billion hits, with an international audience of 700,000 million people in 100 countries, As an actress she is currently featured in Amazon Prime Video’s satirical comedy, “Fake News: A Trump Story.” Other credits include Showtime’s “The Circus,” “In Sanity Florida,” and the feature film “Nearly Departed.”
The busy mom of four shows was named one of Florida’s Top Power Women and Influencers and just a year later won the title of Mrs. Florida 2016. In 2018, Richtopia ranked her as one of the Top 250 Most Influential Business Journalists in the World and she has been featured in multiple national and international publications. In addition, Karyn is also a sought-after media consultant and political news correspondent, having gained a large following for her pre-and post-election coverage.
Before stepping in front of the camera, Karyn first gained recognition as a businesswoman. By age 28, she was a top national sales director in the print marketing space in the 1990s. Realizing the potential for online distribution, Karyn helped pioneer the online video content for revenue platform and was recruited by CBS Radio to oversee and develop innovative marketing for the South Florida broadcast stations. After digitizing the medium and positioning them for sale, the company was sold in 2012 to Palm Beach Broadcasting for an unprecedented $50 million. In the years following, Karyn began taking on more customized projects that utilize her strong interpersonal skills, offering media and crisis management for professional athletes, celebrities, and politicians.
While she may be a fixture at Mar-a-Lago, Karyn isn’t your typical socialite. She is extremely open about her own history as a first-generation American whose parents fled the Nazi occupation in Austria. An adopted child with a beautiful backstory, she has worked tirelessly with organizations raising awareness for Alzheimer’s special needs and women’s issues. She is a lover of Israel, animals, and, above all, family, as her main passion is to inspire those around her to pursue their dreams and fight for the causes closest to their hearts.
Karyn currently lives in South Florida with her husband, Palm Beach Law Offices founder Evan Turk, with whom she works with on high profile client cases that are often splashed across the day’s headlines.
