Handy Halloween Ideas In the News

Mr. Handyman President JB Sassano and Fox & Friends hosts Tucker Carlson, Clayton Morris, Anna Kooiman, and Janice Dean get together for one last photo opportunity!

Mr. Handyman had our third year of promoting our pumpkin carving with power tools tips and tricks. We were thrilled to be invited back to Fox & Friends Weekend and several franchise owners also secured local television segments. As toolbox experts from completing thousands of residential and commercial repair, maintenance, improvement and remodeling projects, Mr. Handyman figured out how to use a jigsaw, sawzall, wood chisels, cordless drill, pumpkin gutter, spade and coring bits to save time with this annual chore.

Here's a snapshot of our media appearances throughout the country:

Fox & Friends Weekend:

You can watch how Mr. Handyman President J.B. Sassano held his own with the excited cast of Fox & Friends Weekend this past Saturday as he taught pumpkin carving with power tools. Anna Kooiman, Clayton Morris, Tucker Carlson and Janice Dean had a blast picking up tools and learning how a jigsaw and cordless drill can make the task of pumpkin carving a cinch. Our 2:55 segment is hosted on Fox & Friends' website, and we also appeared in two promotion spots leading up to our appearance. Behind-the-scenes photos of the pumpkins and prep behind the scenes has been posted online at

We were so excited when @annakooiman tweeted about the show!
