EXCLUSIVE: Volodymyr Zelenskyy and the Spirit of Ukraine is @TIME’s Person of the Year.
#TIMEPOY Zelenskyy has been called a hero by many in Ukraine and abroad, and over the last year, established himself as a symbol of defiance and democracy while he continues to lead the nation through Russia’s unprovoked attacks on his country.
The magazine’s editors have chosen the Ukrainian president as the person who has had the most influence on the news over the past year. #TIMEPOY
#TIMEPOY @shustry wrote: “Zelenskyy’s success as a wartime leader has relied on the fact that courage is contagious. It spread through Ukraine’s political leadership in the first days of the invasion, as everyone realized the President had stuck around.”

EXCLUSIVE: Two of the three missing boaters who were saved in the Gulf of Mexico after 28 hours of drifting in shark-infested waters are here with us opening up about their experience.
The fishermen had set sail from Venice, Louisiana, on the morning of Oct. 8, but never returned home. A family member reported the men as missing around 10 p.m. that night, but no one knew exactly where they had been fishing.
The Coast Guard searched for the men for hours by air and sea, but it wasn't until Sunday afternoon that the search had a breakthrough.

Now, the boaters reunite with the rescuers live and speak on the fishermen’s unbelievable rescue that was all caught on camera.

From a young age, Paopao always dreamed of one day becoming a professional musician. Now, she's making it happen.
.@paopao grew up living between Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic with a psychologist mom and doctor dad. She studied at the University of Miami’s Frost School of Music where she majored in media writing and production and got her master’s degree in music business.
College helped paopao in the music industry but she knows it’s not for everyone. "It was definitely my right path, but I don’t recommend it to everyone. Like, you don’t have to spend $60,000 on private education to be successful in music,” she said.

Audiences are raving about @misstaylorpaige’s performance as young Winifred Sanderson #HocusPocus2 — and so are we.

Here’s what she had to say about this experience.
The original movie starring Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker and Kathy Najimy came out in 1993 — 14 years before the 15-year-old was born.

“I had watched this movie every Halloween for as long as I can remember,” she told @LeighTVReporter.
The entire process — including rewatching the original about 40 times on her own accord for research purposes — took about two months starting in July of 2021, Henderson said.
